We Finally Know What Trump's Border Wall Will Look Like

- Page 1

When Donald Trump first announced he was running for president back in 2015, one of his earliest promises was to build a border wall.

Now, after years of waiting, the government has finally revealed designs showing what the wall between America and Mexico will look like. Trump has famously insisted that our southern neighbors will pay for the wall, but they say that won't happen.

While plans for the border wall seem to be moving forward, Americans are still divided over the project. Although 74% of Republicans polled say they support the plan to build a wall, 89% of Democrats don't, and the majority of Americans (70%) think it's a bad idea.

There are also concerns that the wall will harm the wildlife population along the border, and it's not clear whether the wall would cover a 700-900 mile stretch or America's full 2,000 mile border with Mexico.

This early design for the wall seems to have been rejected.

Regardless, President Trump is very serious about the project. At a rally in Phoenix, Arizona this month he threatened to shut down the government next month unless the Congress and Senate fund the wall.

The new designs give us a pretty good idea what the finished project will look like.
