Donald Trump has long pushed the idea that he would be able to complete the construction of a border wall between the United States and Mexico. After tweeting out a video of his plans, social media critics wasted no time lashing out.

Trump on Twitter

When Donald Trump announced his campaign for president back in June 2015, he did so on the floor of Trump Tower and caused a media frenzy in the process. During his speech, the former host of "The Apprentice" came under fire due his insulting remarks about illegal immigrants from Mexico, labeling them "rapists" and "murderers." Over the course of the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump made tackling illegal immigration once of his top priorities, which included his border wall to be allegedly financed by the Mexican government, as well as the possible mass deportation of the reported 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States.

Since his election win over Hillary Clinton and inauguration that followed, Trump has continued to push for the wall, though not much progress for funding has been made in Congress. As seen on his Twitter feed on October 17, Trump decided to post a video of the wall in question under construction.

In a tweet on Tuesday night, Donald Trump shared an edited video clip of his border wall plans along with a message of excitement. "BORDER WALL prototypes underway!" Trump wrote.The president has vowed to complete the border wall by the time he is out of office, though even some Republicans have their doubts about the time-frame.

As expected, those who oppose the current administration wasted no time firing back with their thoughts.

Twitter reacts

Within minutes of Donald Trump's tweet on the border wall, his critics lashed out. "You are a Prototype of a 'nightmare come true' President," one tweet read.

"None of these wall prototypes will ever be built.

No one will give you funding, especially not Mexico," another tweet added, which was followed by, "It's a waste of taxpayer dollars, and is based on foolish racism and nationalism. We don't need to separate ourselves from others even more." "Dude... You're spending money on walls that don't actually wall off anything. This is your administration in a nutshell," one Twitter user stated.

"No thanks. Please spend my money on protecting the environment instead," yet another tweet added. The backlash continued as the opposition to the border wall and Donald Trump moved forward.
