US And Mexico Kids Play Together On Seesaws Built On The Border Wall In Defiance Of Donald Trump

Think back to the earliest days of childhood. Odds are that you remember laughing and having fun with your friends in playgrounds, whether you were on the swings or a seesaw. But you probably wouldn’t expect to see seesaws anywhere close to a heavily guarded border, would you? Well, check again.


Like something out of a fairytale, a set of shocking pink seesaws sprang upright in the middle of the US border wall with Mexico. Unsurprisingly, the seesaws became an instant hit. Kids (and adults!) flocked to have fun on them, not minding the metal border wall that separated them.


The seesaws were installed right across the United States-Mexico border between Texas, El Paso and Ciudad Juárez in Mexico. The geniuses behind this brilliant and playful idea were two professors. They’re Ronald Rael, a professor of architecture at the University of California, Berkeley, and Virginia San Fratello — an associate professor of design at San José State University.


Rael posted videos and photographs of the seesaws in action on Instagram. The best part is, everybody loved them, no matter their age! Rael’s post went viral and got over 32,700 likes (and counting), as well as over 870 comments.


One of the things Trump is best known (and criticized) for is his desire to build a wall between the US and Mexico. According to The Guardian, The US supreme court ruled in Trump’s favor and allowed him to use 2.5 billion dollars of Pentagon funds on four contracts to replace existing barriers with fencing.


While Donald Trump is often criticized for his border wall plans, he’s far from the first American leader to start building the wall. Presidents George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush all authorized projects to expand the border wall.
