Trump says his wall must be "see through"
Which means it isn't a wall at all -- it's a fence

Trump explains why he wants to be able to 'see through' his border wall
    President Donald Trump still wants to build a southern border wall --- and he wants to be able to see through it.
    In comments made to reporters aboard Air Force One on Wednesday night en route to Paris, Trump outlined the possible design parameters of the divisive barrier he has proposed for the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump maintained that he was "not joking" about putting solar panels on the wall to potentially help cover the cost.
    He also contended that any wall would have to be transparent --- "you need to be able to see through it." [...]
    "One of the things with the wall is you need transparency. You have to be able to see through it. In other words, if you can't see through that wall --- so it could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what's on the other side of the wall.
    "And I'll give you an example. 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. As crazy (stet) as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall. But we have some incredible designs."

Taking advantage of free advice
    
When first I heard about Trump's plan to build a wall, I said it was a bad idea.
    My Web page - July 9, 2015
    
"By saying he would build a wall along the US-Mexico border without saying what it would achieve, he has made a number of mistakes. As any US Border Patrol agent would tell you, they cannot see through a wall and that is a security risk."
Now, two years later, Trump is saying the same thing.

Trump explains why he wants to be able to 'see through' his border wall
    I have other suggestions for President Trump, however, as I have been demonized by the left (the SPLC), and ignored by the right (Fox News), if he does use my ideas it is unlikely he will acknowledge the source.
    But that's OK, American Border Patrol is a non-profit and the advice is free.
