The president of Mexico has inspired a global trending hashtag on Twitter, after newly elected President Donald Trump formally ordered the construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border.

Trump signed two executive orders at the Department of Homeland Security yesterday, which will mark the beginning of the controversial construction of a giant wall along the US’s Southern Border and strip funding for sanctuary cities.
