& # 39; That's what they call a boundary & # 39 ;: Wall-focused Trump praises the effectiveness of the DMZ, says & # 39; nobody & # 39; goes through it
- President Trump said he will visit the DMZ Sunday
- It marks division between North and South Korea
- It is heavily fortified, although the two nations have broken the weapons
- He called it a limit and said & # 39; no one goes through & # 39;
President Donald Trump praised the DMZ as an impenetrable border on the eve of his visit to the fortified zone – a parallel with his distinctive domestic political issues.
The president made the remark at the G20 summit in Osaka, following his surprising announcement that he will visit the DMZ and outreach via Twitter to have a quick meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un when he is in country is.
& # 39; When you talk about a wall when you talk about a border, they call it a border & # 39 ;, Trump told reporters at a summit meeting with Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.
He compared the DMZ with the wall that he wants to walk across the southern US border
& # 39; Nobody crosses that line, & # 39; said Trump. & # 39; Almost nobody. That is called a real limit. We're going there. I'm going to look at it. That really matters, & he said.
The DMZ has been heavily strengthened for decades since the Korean War in 1953. It was the site of incidental shootings of defectors and accidental confrontations.

Part of the boundary wall built by We Build The Wall Inc. was posted on June 26, 2019 in Sunland Park, New Mexico. We Build the Wall is a non-profit organization that finances the private construction of the part of the border wall in an attempt to say that it is preventing the flow of migrants and others from crossing the border illegally from Mexico to the United States.
The Mexican army, the national guard, the federal police and the police of Chihuahua patrolled the border between El Paso and Juarez on Thursday. Enforcement is a response to President Donald Trump's threat of tariffs on Mexican goods being exported to the United States. The US has seen a drop in illegal crossings since Mexico began enforcing their northern and southern borders
The two parties have taken steps to reduce the risk of armed accidents, to add buffer zones and to build a few watchtowers.
Back home, Trump demanded the construction of the southern border wall, sent troops to barbed wire, and allocated military funds intended for other purposes to replace the existing wall.
But Congress Democrats have committed themselves to building a steel and concrete wall across the entire southern border.
