Trump’s Wall Failure

High winds blow over section of US-Mexico border fence

A new section of President Donald Trump’s signature wall along the US-Mexico border has been blown over in high winds, US officials say.

Steel panels from the fence in the town of Calexico, California were knocked down on Wednesday morning.

The concrete used to anchor the 30ft-tall (9m) panels in place had not yet dried.

Gusts of around 30 mph (48 km/h) were reported at the time, the US National Weather Service said.

High winds? Gust of 30mph could justify a small craft advisory and raise a single red pennant, but a Beaufort level 6 shouldn’t be knocking down walls. If the concrete hadn’t set, there should have been bracing in place until it did.

Maybe Trump should hire the contractors who built: ‘Longest ever’ smuggling tunnel discovered under the US-Mexico border.
