On Friday night, President Trump told a crowd of supporters in Alabama that his proposed great wall along the U.S.-Mexico border would be “see through.”
“The wall is happening. In fact, you probably saw, you know, we have a wall up there now, and re-renovating it already. It’s being made pristine, perfect, just as good
“If you can’t [see] through it, you don’t know who’s on the other side. Let’s say we build a pre-cast concrete wall and now we have people on the other side,” he rambled. “It’s going to stop drugs. It’s going to stop a lot of bad things.”
Trump was talking to supporters at a rally for Senator Luther Strange (R) before the Alabama Senate GOP runoff on Tuesday.
The president’s insane comments come after he struck a deal with Democrats concerning the debt ceiling earlier in the month, indicating that it would not include funding for a border wall.
Trump has dishonestly promised that Mexico would pay for the wall, however Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has insisted his country will not pay for the construction of the wall.
Congress has yet to fully fund the project.
