Portions of Trump's Newly Constructed Border Wall Just Collapsed Onto the Mexico Side in High Winds

President Donald Trump's long-sought wall at the southern border has been a pillar of his campaign and administration.

Despite constant claims that Mexico would pay for it, Trump's frequently shown that he's willing to use taxpayer dollars for its funding—even if it means shutting down the government or diverting funds from the military.

Trump promised in 2015:

"I will build a great wall—and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me—and I'll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words."

But portions of the wall recently set in concrete in Calexico, California are proving not to be so great after all.

We already knew the border wall could be climbed, but in what some would consider a metaphor for his administration, portions of the wall have tipped over into Mexico due to high winds.

Costing millions of dollars per mile to construct, Trump's promise to build 450 miles of border wall by the end of 2020 is anything but realistic. Though the President boasts about having built 100 miles of wall last year, ninety-nine of those miles were repairs on already existing barriers.

The collapse got the internet talking.
