Washington: The United States President Donald Trump has recently announced that he wants a glass border built along the border of Mexico which would put an end to illegal immigration.
Building a border wall to put an end to illegal migration was included in his campaign.
“One of the things with the wall is you need transparency,” journalists quoted Trump saying while heading to France on Air Force One. “You have to be able to see through it. 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” said the President.
Emphasizing his vision for a glass wall, he said, “And I’ll give you an example, as horrible as it sounds, when they throw 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 as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall. But we have some incredible designs.”
The journalists realized it later that the President actually wants his plans to be reported in public.
He also said as mountains, rivers are already natural barriers, a wall “anywhere from 700 to 900 miles” would be enough, instead of building a 2,000-mile border wall.
