There are few things that Trump loves talking about than his beloved border wall.

Remember that time he literally shut down the government for weeks because the Democrats wouldn’t approve billions of dollars for his little project? Well now it’s cost over 18 billion dollars and, judging by a new video that’s emerged, it wasn’t money well spent.

Footage has emerged of Trump's wall appearing to buckle under a little bit of wind.

The crumbling segment is a new party of the wall too, which makes matters even worse. Agent Carlos Pitones of the Customs and Border Protection sector in El Centro, California, told CNN that the sections that gave way had recently been set in a new concrete foundation in Calexico, California. The concrete had not yet cured, according to Pitones, and the wall panels were unable to withstand the windy conditions.

Lots of people have pointed out that the clip is a metaphor for the Trump presidency.

This isn't the only problem with Trump's wall. There was footage of people climbing over it with ease and polling suggests most Americans don't even want it.
