Trump's reason for building transparent wall is to avoid getting hit with a bag of drugs

Opening Argument

WhyTrumpWhyTrump 158 PtsPremium Member
Trump is claiming that one of key reasons why wall with Mexico needs to be transparent is that people catapult bags of drugs over the wall and it may hit you over the head. I think that's a ridiculous reason.

  • Yes, as he said, people need to see what’s happening on the other side of the wall due to concerns like drugs being thrown over the wall. Those bags might be every heavy and could lead to injuries or deaths.

    That's a stupid concern. Being hit on the head with a bag.

    @northsouthkorea, thats what he said, but does that really justify a transparent wall. If someone is hanging out near that wall, that's probably the least of their issues

    Its pretty clear to anyone that his wall wouldn't do much, Making it transparent to avoid being hit by a bag of drugs doesn't change that

    Its quite obvious that the wall needs to be built.  That being the case, it makes sense to be able to see thru the wall at regular intervals.  Trump wasn't suggesting that the wall has to be made of a transparent material

    Actually, he wasn't.  Here's his quote;

    "One of the things with the wall is you need transparency," Trump said.

    "You have to be able to see through it. In other words, if you can't see through that wall -- so it could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what's on the other side of the wall."

    To my knowledge, we haven't yet developed transparent steel.  He could have cited better reasons, but Trump is right, it should be made so that we can see whats going on on the other side of the wall at regular intervals

    @CYDdharta , great argument! I believe that Trump’s point is reasonable, but is not necessary. What he is saying as his cause may not be popular or happen at all. I am also not sure if the technology for this is available or developed.

    Would that make it a fence? With the advanced technology that we have at our disposal, construction of towers at intervals with infrared and night vision technological capabilities would be far more efficient in cost, and creates jobs in the process.

    It could be, I suppose it depends on what your definition of a fence is.  It could be something like this;
