Hurricane Hanna has knocked down a part of Donald Trump’s US-Mexico border wall as it left a trail of destruction along the Texas coast.
A section of the border wall that Trump has spent nearly four years bragging about was destroyed.
A video circulating on Twitter showed winds toppling a newly constructed portion of the border wall built between the United States and Mexico.

Roderick Kise, a spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection in the Rio Grande Valley, said he was checking with authorities in Washington, but at first glance did not believe the footage was from South Texas.
“The hurricane hit us at nighttime, but looks like it was shot during the day,” Kise said in an interview.
He added that the terrain did not look like the lower Rio Grande Valley.
