Viral Video Appears To Show Men Climbing Trump’s New ‘Impenetrable’ Border Wall




A viral video clip posted to Twitter on Tuesday shows three men using a ladder to scale President Trump’s newly developed border wall between Mexico and the U.S.

The 38-second clip, shows one man holding the ladder while the other two climb.

One of the men slides down the railing of the wall onto the U.S. side before running to scale another barrier.




In the background, a person yells in Spanish “Hurry, hurry, jump the fence,” the Palm Springs Desert Sun reported.

When a U.S. Border Patrol vehicle appears, the other two men take down the ladder and remain on the Mexican side of the wall.

The Sun could not confirm if the group of men was on the U.S. side of the wall had been apprehended.

The video, shared by Desert Sun photojournalist Omar Ornelas, has received 3.3 million views as of Thursday afternoon.




Trump has repeatedly boasted to crowds about the new border barrier sections, calling them “virtually impenetrable” and likening the structure to a “Rolls-Royce” that border-crossers cannot get over, under or through.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection started building the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border in Calexico, Calif., in February, but it is not a part of President Trump’s border wall campaign promise as it was approved in 2009, the Desert Sun reported.
