On Friday, with a shutdown of the federal government looming, President Donald Trump tweeted out photos of the border wall he promised voters that Mexico would pay for during the 2016 election.
Trump is now re-branding the wall a “Steel Slat Barrier” in an apparent effort to convince Democrats to support it.
“A design of our Steel Slat Barrier which is totally effective while at the same time beautiful!” Trump said.

The illustration was brutally mocked on Twitter.

Thanks so much for the close-up image insert of the Immigrant-Piercing-Pikes feature Mr. President. Very helpful.
I can almost hear the anguished screams! LOL!
Merry Christmas! 🎄

Purely for scale, like.
