Trump Explains Steel Wall Prototype Penetrated in DHS Test: 'Designed By Previous Administrations'

Source: Mediaite


by Caleb Ecarma | Jan 10th, 2019, 11:05 am

After a DHS test revealed that a steel border fence prototype can be sawed through, President Donald Trump claimed the vulnerable design was from a previous administration and said his plans has will be “very, very hard to penetrate.”

Trump, who responded to the criticism after a reporter pressed him about photos of the damaged barrier from a DHS 2017 report, alleged that was “a wall that was designed by previous administrations.”

“There’s nothing that cant be penetrated, but you fix it, but it’s a very difficult thing to do,” he continued, responding to the pictures obtained by NBC News. “We have many walls under consideration. Even concrete, there’s acid that can go through concrete, but what you do is you fix it.”

The president finished answering the question by insisting the “wall that we’re doing is very, very hard to penetrate,” compared to the wall that was punctured by law enforcement and military authorities at the behest of DHS.

1. Trump is not capable of telling the truth, not about anything.

He lies about things that are proven as a lie in the very moment he tells the lie. The man is a psychopath.

35. So much this.

He just lies reflexively.

It's like he doesn't even think whether there is an actual reason to lie.

on edit: my sentence still sucks but it's better

That wall is all yours Trump and after two years of wasted effort and money, it’s just as ridiculous. Hang it up Trump.

Trump did not explain, he lied. The sawed wall was one of his admin's prototypes.

5. Acid that goes through concrete? Dumbass. Acid will go through steel faster.

Is he actually going back to concrete again? Does really he think that the test walls that he ordered were designed by anyone other than the companies he gave money to build test walls? He is so fucking stupid that brown paper bags would deny him entry to an area.

9. "Hard to penetrate" means it can be penetrated.

He always blames previous presidents for his lousy ideas. He never owns anything. He's not just a lousy president, he's a lousy excuse for a human being.

Wouldn't it be cheaper just to pay people not to sneak into the country?

12. Time to go ridiculous

The whole wall debate of Trump is absurd. It's a 4th Century solution to a 21st Century problem, wasting taxpayer money to fulfill an impossible campaign slogan.

So, there's no "compromise with Trump" or "no compromise with Trump", only "we can cheer the debate" (or ignore it). I say, don't challenge people with no concept of facts. Just agree.

My new position. (Feel free to use) "A wall? Yes! Any civilized country needs to control its immigration. I just disagree with a 4th Century wall in 2019. Have we even considered an electric fence? A moat with sharks? Land mines? I mean, what's wrong with Trump? Is he stupid? He wants to build a concrete/steel wall because his buddies can sell the government concrete, steel, and wall-building labor? For that matter, if he really wants to keep people away build a Trump hotel along the border. I hear nobody is going within a hundred miles of those overpriced dumps."

I've gone on too long now . . .

Can't this be used against his administration if it ends up in court?

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100211643142

The Great Wall of China. Hundreds of thousands of soldiers and conscripts and several centuries to build it. It was built on the border between China and Mongolia. It was built to keep the Mongols out of China.

Walls? Kublai Khan. The first MONGOLIAN EMPEROR of China.

30. Anyone considering explosives?

This is my first message to DU. Getting here was a hassle, but I hope it was worth it. I comment on FB a lot, but most of my friends are redneck Magats and I'm getting side eyed. Want to post in a more friendly environment. So regarding penetration of a wall, wouldn't the easiest way be with explosives?

33. Looks like the one he had is easy enough to saw through

So, of course, he figures if that happens there'll just be someone around to fix it - all 2000 miles of it!

Welcome to DU! We're glad to have you with us!

31. Trump's wall will be magic, like the one in Game of Thrones

that keeps wildlings and White Walkers out.

What's that? Climbed over? Melted a hole in it with an undead dragon? Well, um, okay, but . . . Mexicans don't have undead dragons! So there! Magic Wall! Magic Wall!

Tests must be made. THEYRE JUNK! Like his apartments and casinos.
