President Trump considers including transparent sections of the new Mexico border wall:

“During a flight aboard Air Force One Wednesday, Trump told reporters, ‘One of the things with the wall is you need transparency. You have to be able to see through it. In other words, if you can’t see through that wall…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.’

The president added, ‘As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don’t see them and 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.'”

President Trump also indicated his interest in using solar panels in an attempt to offset some of the cost of construction.
