    Build border wall out of solar panels.

    Face panels towards Mexican side.

    Mexican side pays for itself in 20 years

    All those opposed will be demonized as anti-science and anti-environment.

    Done!

    Any interest in the scientific and environmental arguments against a physical barrier in this location?

    The animal kingdom will die off in a mass extinction?\

    Then again, if it means saving mother earth then ya got to do what you got to do.

    Or would you rather the entire earth to burn up in a hellish apocalypse?

    Thought so.

    Wouldn't it be ironic that Trump triggers the extinction of the human race?

    I mean we've had some truly evil leaders... but that stupidity is the final straw!

    Just in case you were wondering: attaching solar panels to a wall costs pretty much the same as building a solar power farm, so it's not going to pay for anything. It's a good idea only to the extent that solar power is profitable/desirable.

    Besides, wasn't Trump supposed to be ditching renewables for fossil fuels?

    His plan is to ultimately replace the human race with orange people.

    First he must build the wall and kill off all the animals, then he will replace Obamacare and kill off the human populace.


    It.....could.....work!!!!!

    Will the solar panel be on the Mexican side or the USA side of the wall?
    Because it is the Trump decision he will put in on the USA side, of course.

    The world is laughing. At Trump? No, at USA who elected him.

    The wall itself will not be built directly on the border (if it is ever built). It has to be built some distance into the U.S. because Mexico is obviously not going to cooperate. You would put the panels on the Mexican side because they will get more sunlight.

    Yes, of course, but does Mr Trump know that?

    I had the impression that Trump is [to be] persuaded that the Mexicans will be tricked into paying for the wall because it is the sun from their side that will be used to provide power to the USA side. Possibly the Mexicans will be bothered at the loss of so much solar energy, which otherwise would be all theirs. ..... Well, Trump is the one we have to persuade here. Whodey will follow with ease.
