Eight prototypes of Trump’s border wall have been finished at an estimated cost of between $US2.4 and 4 million. Following is a transcript of the video.
One of these prototypes could be Trump’s border wall. Construction finished on eight prototypes and the mock-ups have been placed at the border in San Diego. The prototypes are built with reinforced concrete and stand 18 – 30 feet high.
Estimated cost for the prototypes was between $US2.4 and 4M. The funds are from “reprogrammed money” within US Customs and Border Protection.
Trump has had obstacles getting funding for the wall. The Senate refused to green light a $US1.6B down payment. A House panel recently approved a bill that would provide up to $US10B.
The bill will now head to the House floor for debate, but experts say the full cost could come out to about $US22B.
California plans to sue Trump to prevent the wall from being built.
