United States President Donald Trump will be able to look to a Tasmanian tourist attraction for how to successfully construct a wall between the US and Mexico.
The village of Lower Crackpot at Tasmazia witnessed an historic moment on Saturday when a great big wall between its American and Mexican embassies was officially opened by two Commanders in Chief, Trump and Jacqui Lambie.
Impersonator ‘The Unreal Donald Trump’ addressed the “probably thousands” in the crowd gathered at the quirky miniature town.
“I’m going to open this wall. The greatest wall since China built theirs thousands maybe millions of years ago and we’re going to keep building this wall right around Tasmania,” he said.
The Trump wall, complete with barbed wire and solar panels, was built between the American embassy, a model of the Statue of Liberty, and the Mexican embassy, a large cactus with sombreros.
‘Trump’ said he enjoyed coming to Australia as a US President who negotiates and spoke of how he too loves to build big things.
He commented on a range of issues in his speech, including Ms Lambies ‘birther problem’, the lying fake media and his problematic phone calls with Australian Prime Minister “Tremble”.
Ms Lambie provided security services as the Commander in Chief of Lower Crackpot and cut the ribbon alongside the president.
They also opened the smallest mural in the world.
“It has been a great honour as the Commander in Chief of Tasmazia to meet the president today. It’s been a great honour to have him down here and as you probably noted there is security everywhere,” she said.
“We’ve been very vigilant about his appearance today and we’re very grateful that he’s come over here on the Spirit of Tasmania.”
Tasmazia creator Brian Inders said the opening went very well.
“It’s part of history, part of very very serious history. And it certainly puts America on the map and lets them know that we’re looking after everything down here,” he said.
Mr Inders said his construction crew would keep a close eye on the American version of the wall when it was constructed.
“It’s essential that he gets the wall right. We’ve given him an example here how it should be.”
