Apparently after seeing the sample walls, he now wants them to be see through, so the boarder guards can see what is going on the other side.

"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.

"And I'll give you an example: As horrible as it sounds, when they throw the large sacks of drugs over, and if you have people on the other side of the wall, you don't see them — they hit you on the head with 60 pounds of stuff? It's over," Trump continued. "As crazy as that sounds, you need transparency through that wall. But we have some incredible designs."
Then went on to make some stereotype generalization (bordering on racist) in my opinion:

Quote:
Trump said tall walls were needed to keep out “incredible climbers.”

“Getting over the top is easy. These are like professional mountain climbers, these are incredible climbers,” Trump said. “They can't climb some of these walls, some of them they can.”
