So you want to build a wall ... well, my dear Donald (and friends), although you do not understand a lot of geography, since for you America is your country and not a continent, it is important that before you put the first bricks, you find out what is it all that you will be leaving outside that wall.

Outside there are 7 billion people; but as you also do not sound that much knowledgeable about people, you might as well call them consumers. There are 7 billion consumers willing to replace the iPhone with the Samsung or the Huawei in less than 24 hours. They can also replace the Levi's with products from Zara or Massimo Duti.
Quietly, in less than half a year, we can stop buying Ford or Chevrolet vehicles and replace them with a Toyota, KIA, Mazda, Honda, Hyundai, Volvo, Subaru, Renault or BMW, which technically far surpass the cars you produce.
Our 7 billion can also stop subscribing to Direct TV and we would not like it, but we can stop watching Hollywood movies and start seeing more Latin American or European productions that have superior quality, message, cinematographic techniques and content.
Although it may seem incredible to you, we can stop going to Disney and instead go to the Xcaret park in Cancun, Mexico, or other formidable places in Canada or Europe: there are other excellent destinations in South America, and the East. And believe it or not, even in Mexico you can easily find hamburgers much better than McDonalds and with better nutritional content.
We can easily stop Importing meat from you and start consuming the one we produce of a quality that is similar, or much better from Argentina, Australia, Brazil or Uruguay. All those far better than any of yours.
Has anyone seen any pyramid in the United States? No, that one in Vegas is a fake. In Egypt, Mexico, Peru, Guatemala, Sudan and other countries there are pyramids with incredible cultures. Search where the wonders of the ancient and modern world are ... None is in the United States ... what a pity for you, missing tbe opportunity to have bought and resold all those! We know that Adidas exists and not only Nike and we can well start to consume Mexican sneakers like the Panam.
We know so much more than you think. We know, for instance, that if those 7 billion consumers do not buy your products "Made in USA", there will be unemployment there, and your economy (within the racist wall) will collapse to the point that you will beg us to tear down the fateful wall.
We did not want, but ... you asked for the wall, you pushed to get a wall. (You wanted so much a wall, you're probably going to get some kind of wall). OK, be our guest to your isolation. Wall yourselves in and live with the consequences.
The rest of the world.
