Quote | He made the comment while touring wall prototypes along the southern border.

"The larger it is, the better it is because it's very hard to get over the top. It's really deterrent from getting over the top. Who would think, who would think. But getting over the top is easy. These [immigrants crossing the border] are like professional mountain climbers. They’re incredible climbers. They can’t climb some of these walls. Some of them they can. Those are the walls we’re not using."
