But maybe, just maybe, Trump is currently too preoccupied to start asking his friend Boris Johnson to “do us a favour” and sort out his little local difficulty.

A new book claims Trump wanted to add a moat with alligators and snakes to defend America’s southern border.

Sounds ludicrous, but it’s hard to tell with Trump. He’s probably just decided to repurpose the idea as a water hazard near Turnberry’s 15th.
