Commander-in-Chief Donald Trump is starting quite the fire after just one week in the Oval Office.
This week, Trump signed a series of executive orders. The temporary laws set things in motion to fulfill his campaign promise of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Now, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu weighs in on Trump’s plans for the wall.
On Saturday, Netanyahu tweeted:
President Trump is right. I built a wall along Israel's southern border. It stopped all illegal immigration. Great success. Great idea ????
— Benjamin Netanyahu (@netanyahu) January 28, 2017
Israel started construction on its wall in West Bank in 2000. The purpose of the wall was to curb the violence that Palestinian terrorists were bringing into the Jewish state.
President Trump has yet to respond to Netanyahu’s support for the wall. But it seems both world leaders are like-minded when it comes to the issue of immigration.
