Trump Insists On ‘See-Through Wall’ And Says Mexicans Are Like Mountain Climbers, Twitter Explodes

Donald Trump has ordered that his Mexican border wall be built as see-through so officers can see who is on the other side.

Speaking as he inspected prototypes in San Diego on Tuesday, the Trump said: “You have to have see-through,” POTUS declared. “You have to know what’s on the other side of the wall… You could be two feet away from a criminal cartel and you don’t even know they’re there. Now we have equipment to take care of that, x-ray equipment, etc.”

Trump then asked a law enforcement official how important he thought “see-through” was, leading the officer to state that if he can see across the border, he can get ahead of threats.

Trump went on to say that fences won’t work because even if you have a “very powerful fence” you still will have to deal with people cutting holes in the fence. Therefore, America needs a wall along the border because “if you don’t have a wall system we’re not going to have a country.”

He declared they were looking at some walls with “some see-through capability,” adding that “if you don’t have see-through, it’s a problem.”

Trump wondered at the height of the mockups, telling reporters that he envisions a tall wall preventing agile immigrants from entering the U.S.

“Getting over the top is easy,” he said. “These are like professional mountain climbers. They are incredible climbers.”

“They can’t climb some of these walls. Some of them they can,” he added.
