This is how some designers wanted the Trump border wall to look like, but they were turned down

About 200 prototypes were presented to build the border wall proposed by President Donald Trump. Some by way of protest and others quite serious, were rejected by the federal administration when the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency announced the start of construction of eight selected models. The chosen prototypes belonging to six construction companies have not been revealed. These are some of the designs that were rejected.
