Since the start of the 2016 campaign, former President Donald Trump promised his followers a "big, beautiful wall" at the southern border—a move he said would stem the "invasion" of immigrants from Mexico, whom he falsely claimed would pay for the wall.

Despite his lies about the wall's construction, only 15 miles of new wall was built over the course of his time in office.

Trump frequently touted the supposed strength of the wall and promised to spare no expense, saying on the campaign trail in 2015:

"I would 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."

But like Trump steaks, Trump University, and a litany of other failures bearing the former President's name, the reality of the wall never amounted up to Trump's fanciful promises.

That was most recently proven near Douglas, Arizona, where photos by Fernando Sobrazo of the Cuenca Los Ojos environmental group showed heavy monsoons left Trump's beloved border wall in shambles.

Trump's boasts about the wall's strength literally didn't hold water.

It's worth noting that when the Trump administration began its effort to build the wall in 2017, the Department of Homeland Security waived dozens of environmental laws in order to speed up the process—a move that soon got it slapped with an unsuccessful lawsuit.

People saw the destruction as yet another failure for a historically unpopular administration.

Apparently nature herself wasn't even a supporter of the wall, they joked.
