Solar stocks on fire in newest Trump trade

US President Donald Trump said he’s proposed building a “solar wall” on the Mexican border that would pay for itself by generating electricity.In his Iowa speech Wednesday night, Trump also claimed beneficial effects to the economy from actions he has not yet taken.Much has been said of the wall that will prevent Mexicans to head over to the US without documentation, and now it appears it may use solar energy to power the region. “And that’s good, right?” said Donald Trump.The cost of the solar installation would be between US$1.4 billion and US$4.2 billion, not including the cost of the wall, according to the report.”Trump talked yesterday about a “solar wall” on the Mexican border – that might sound like a joke but it’s not”, he said.”Pretty good imagination, right?” he said “Good?”Putting up a wall along the US-Mexico border was part of Trump’s campaign agendas, following which he issued an executive order in January for the beginning of construction.In the statement, the foreign ministry described illicit drug trade as a common problem for both the USA and Mexico. Is that good? You are the first group I’ve told that to. So it creates energy. He had also insisted that he would make Mexico pay for the wall. “The higher it goes, the more valuable it is”.A wall covered with solar panels, if properly angled to get the most amount of the sun, would certainly generate a large amount of energy if the regulatory and technical barriers can be overcome.It is unclear how Mr Trump’s version will differ for this 1996 welfare law signed by President Bill Clinton.Hammering home his campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again”, Mr Trump reprised his key campaign themes: defending American borders, repealing the Obamacare “disaster”, promising record tax cuts – and touting “the wonderful progress that we have already made”.He called it a “total rewrite of our immigration system into a merit-based system”, words consistent with the public tone he has struck on immigration restrictions. In all four congressional races, Democrats did far better than in previous elections.
