Look, I’m not a guy who piles on President Trump for every weird little thing he says. Let’s be honest. If I was, I’d never get any sleep. But this? This is…something, reported Canada Free Press.
I’m hoping this is just some kind of odd spitballing session that’s being reported in a way that makes it sound like more than it really is. Because according to the New York Post - and you may want to be sitting down for this - President Trump would like the border wall with Mexico to be transparent so you don’t get ‘hit on the head’ with 60-pound drug bundles when smugglers throw them over. ...And he’d like it to be solar powered. ...And he reiterated the notion that it may not cover the entire border.
“As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don’t see them — they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It’s over,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One late Wednesday en route to France.
A transparent wall would give the smugglers nowhere to hide, he said.
He also repeated his hopes that the border wall — which he still insists will be paid for by Mexico despite that country’s denials — should be solar-powered.
“Look, there’s no better place for solar than the Mexico border — the southern border,” Trump said. “And there is a very good chance we can do a solar wall, which would actually look good. But there is a very good chance we could do a solar wall.”
I’ll admit I don’t know how many people are getting bonked on the noggin with bushels of cocaine, but I’m willing to bet it’s a rare occurrence. I think it’s probably safe to say we might be overthinking things here.
According to Reuters, Trump is also closing in on an overall length of the wall.
President Donald Trump said the wall he wants to build on the 2,000-mile (3,200-km) U.S.-Mexico frontier may not need to cover the entire border because of existing natural barriers, according to remarks released by the White House on Thursday.
On a flight to Paris from Washington, Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One: “You have mountains. You have some rivers that are violent and vicious. You have some areas that are so far away that you don’t really have people crossing.
“But you’ll need anywhere from 700 to 900 miles.”
