Segment Of Trump's Border Wall Falls Over Into Mexico Due To Wind

(Snicker)--forgot to plan for wind shear, I guess.

-----------------------



"A segment of President Donald Trump’s signature border wall fell in California and onto some trees on the Mexican side on Wednesday amid high winds, according to footage from KYMA shared by CNN.

No one was injured in the incident at Calexico, California, about 100 miles east of San Diego.

"Luckily, Mexican authorities responded quickly and were able to divert traffic from the nearby street,” Carlos Pitones of Customs and Border Patrol told the Los Angeles Times.

He said the panels were newly installed and the concrete anchoring it in place had not yet cured.

CNN noted that winds of up to 37 mph were recorded in the area.

A day earlier, Trump had boasted about the strength of his wall.

And we are now building that beautiful wall,” he said at a campaign event in Wildwood, New Jersey, on Tuesday. “This powerful border wall is going up at record speed.”

[. . .]

So far, most of the wall built ― including the segment that fell Wednesday ― has replaced older barrier segments. Trump claimed this week that about 100 miles have been built so far.

Mexico did not pay for it."

I think it is hilarious that he that does all things great (especially a builder) should fail to check the weather before pouring concrete

steve- do you really think Trump was at the wall site pouring the concrete himself?

probably an old wall. you have to have a $100 tool to cut through the new walls.
