They created a tongue-in-cheek ad for a “Börder Wåll,” making fun of Trump’s real-life proposal.
Less than a week after Inauguration Day, Trump reiterated his plans on Twitter to build a 1,900-milelong wall along the US-Mexico border. Construction could cost American taxpayers an estimated $15 billion to $25 billion, though Trump says Mexico would eventually pay for the wall through taxes or trade. Maintenance and hiring 21,000 border-patrol agents could cost an additional $2.1 billion a year, according to CNBC and an analysis by Politico.
From that perspective, the designers are offering their fake flat-pack wall for a bargain: $9,999,999,999.99. Inside, the presumably very large box would include 471,612 boards, 313,329 rounds of barbed wire, 5,659,344 screws, and a single allen wrench.
Next to the picture of the assembly materials, there’s a person facing the wall with a confused look on its face. Building the Börder Wåll seems like would be more than a one-person job.
