Trump border wall damaged by heavy flooding

Perhaps Mexico will cover the cost of repairs?
Parts of the Trump Administration's border wall may have been damaged by severe weather in southern Arizona. According to the Tucson Sentinel, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agents have confirmed that historic flooding at the nation's border with Mexico is responsible for the damage. This includes several large-opening metal gates that have been removed from their hinges, and sometimes stuck in mud or detritus.

In recent days, monsoons sent floodwaters in the area that weighed thousands of gallons. This could break the 1964 rainfall record.

Gizmodo reports the apparent heavy damage to the multibillion dollar border wall occurred at the San Bernardino Ranch. It is located between Douglas, Arizona and the San Bernardino Wildlife Refuge.

Former president Donald Trump promised that he would build the wall during his presidential campaign. Mexico would pay for it.

He said that no one builds walls as well as me in June 2015. They'll be very affordable.

Trump was able, before leaving office, to fund the construction of parts of the border wall with federal funds that included billions of Dollars from the Department of Defense.

Madrean Archipelago Wildlife Center director Kate Scott described the gates as in disrepair and posted a photo on Twitter. Gizmodo was told by Jos Manuel Prezcant, director at the nonprofit Cuenca de Los Ojos that he knew of six gates that were destroyed by flooding.
