Donald Trump told the Spanish foreign minister he had a foolproof way to deal with the Mediterranean migration crisis: Build a wall across the Sahara.

Mr Trump's pledge to build a wall between the USA and Mexico was one of his best-known election promises.

Spain's Foreign Affairs Minister Josep Borrell revealed President Trump's advice during a speech at a gathering of the non-profit cultural organization Club Siglo XXI in Madrid, Spanish media reported.

"The border with the Sahara can not be bigger than ours with Mexico", the president reportedly told Mr Borrell.

The world's biggest desert stretches 3,000 miles across several global borders in North Africa - including the Morocco/Algeria border.

Borrell did not specify when or where Trump made the suggestion.

According to above-linked report, more than 33,000 migrants and refugees have reached Spain by sea this year.

However, if Spain was to build a wall as suggested by Mr Trump, it would be complicated by the fact that it would have to be built on foreign territory.

According to Josep Borrell, the president wants the European Union member country to emulating his infamous Mexico border policy.

Borrell told his audience that he wasn't in favour of adopting Italy's hardline stance, but said he was concerned about European societies' capacity to absorb a high number of migrants, "especially if they are Muslims".
