    Trump Debunks Fake News Claims of Border Wall Collapse

    Last week the Fake News said that a section of our powerful, under construction, Southern Border Wall “fell over”, trying to make it sound terrible, except the reason was that the concrete foundation was just poured & soaking wet when big winds kicked in. Quickly fixed “forever”.

    He debunks that a section fell down by saying a section fell down?

    except the reason was that the concrete foundation was just poured & soaking wet when big winds kicked in.

    Portion of US border wall in California falls over in high winds and lands on Mexican side


    Newly installed panels from the US border wall fell over in high winds Wednesday, landing on trees on the Mexican side of the border.

    The area is part of an ongoing construction project to improve existing sections of the wall.

    Agent Carlos Pitones of the Customs and Border Protection sector in El Centro, California, told CNN that the sections that gave way had recently been set in a new concrete foundation in Calexico, California. The concrete had not yet cured, according to Pitones, and the wall panels were unable to withstand the windy conditions.

    The National Weather Service reports that winds in the area gusted as high as 37 mph Wednesday. Video from CNN affiliate KYMA shows the metal panels leaning against trees adjacent to a Mexicali, Mexico, street as the wind whips up dirt from the construction site on the other side of the border.

    "We are grateful there was no property damage or injuries," said Pitones.
