Trump’s border wall already falling down after flash floods
Parts of Donald Trump’s much-publicised border wall with Mexico have been severely damaged in monsoon rains.
Pictures showed metal gates have fallen off their hinges, leaving gaps in a stretch of the barrier in southern Arizona.
Mud and detritus has been washed against the side of the structure after ‘historic flooding’ hit the area.
Others sections were reportedly damaged in the same region.
The wall was one of the central promises of Trump’s presidential campaign in 2015 when he also pledged to make Mexico pay for it.
In reality, the then president funnelled in billions from other federal projects to cover the cost of the much-criticised project after he declared a national emergency.
It was built in a rush with critics claiming environmental and cultural protections laws were sidelined.
Pictures of the damaged wall were taken in the San Bernardino Ranch and shared by conservationists on social media.
