Picking up on the theme laid out by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and other border experts and agents, Trump spoke about the need for any border barrier to allow agents to see the other side.

He said though it was a insane idea, the wall would need to be see-through to stop passers-by being hit with heavy sacks of drugs being thrown over 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", Trump stated.

"You have to be able to see through it", Trump said, adding that border agents need to know what or who is on the other side of the fence to avoid being hit by sacks of drugs and other contraband.

Mr Rozental estimated there was a less than 20% chance that this wall - as he calls it - will ever be built.

He added: "It just doesn't make any sense".

Trump's comments on the wall are the most definitive description he has given on what became a primary campaign promise.

But on his way to Paris, Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One, "It's a 2,000 (3,218 kilometer) mile border, but you don't need 2,000 miles of wall because you have a lot of natural barriers". You have some rivers that are violent and vicious.

Mr Trump said: "You have mountains". You have some areas that are so far away that you don't really have people crossing.

President Donald Trump doesn't see the need for a proposed border wall to stretch the length of the roughly 2,000-mile (3,218 kilometer) frontier with Mexico.

Donald Trump didn't leave the idea of the constructing the wall along the border with Mexico. "We're fixing it. It's already started".

The Democrats argued back, stating that President Trump is failing to keep up with his promise for the construction of the wall and "knows it's going to be almost impossible to get funding for a wall" and is thus, creating "a victory out of nothing".
