Section of Donald Trump's wall on Mexico border blows over in high winds

PART of Donald Trumps (in)famous wall on the US-Mexico border has blown over due to strong winds.

On Wednesday, a number of steel panels standing 30ft high began to sway and eventually slumped over onto a couple of equally tall trees nearby, which was lucky as without the trees the steel would've fallen onto a main road.

"What happened?"

It occurred on the border between the Californian town of Calexico and Mexicali in Mexico.

The section of the wall was under construction at the time, and concrete actors were being put in place to secure the panels.

However, According to reports, strong winds blew the panels over onto the Mexican side of the border before the concrete had cured.

The news was met with laughter - as you might have expected - with many of Trump's political opponents using the incident to demonstrate the President's 'hot-air' politics.

"I own buildings. I'm a builder; I know how to build. Nobody can build like I can build. Nobody. And the builders in New York will tell you that. I build the best product," wrote Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer sarcastically on Twitter.

Prominent migrant rights campaigner Juan Escalante said: "Point and laugh everyone, just point and laugh."

On Tuesday, Trump boasted at a campaign event in New Jersey that the wall was "going up at record speed".

A day later, part of it had been blown over.

The fence is part of the Trump administration's ongoing construction project to stop illegal migration across the 1,954 mile-long (3,145 km) US-Mexico border, following a promise he made to reduce illegal immigration during his initial presidential campaign in 2016.
