Trump’s ‘virtually impenetrable’ new wall getting breached by cordless power tools: report
Nov. 03, 2019
President Trump has touted his $10 billion border wall with Mexico as “virtually impenetrable,” but drug-smuggling Mexican gangs have repeatedly sawed their way through with household tools, according to a report.
The breaches, which have occurred in recent months, have been made using a popular cordless tool known as a reciprocating saw, which sells for as little as $100, US agents and officials told The Washington Post .
“I haven’t heard that,” Trump said as he left the White House for Andrews Air Force base, en route to the Big Apple for UFC 244.
“We have a very powerful wall. But no matter how powerful, you can cut through anything, in all fairness.” Breaches are “easily fixed,” he added.
Customs and Border Protection declined to tell the Washington Post how many times the breaches happened and where.
