    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday evening said the only way someone could get down from the wall he would build between the United States and Mexico was with a rope.

    During a town-hall meeting in New Hampshire, Trump said he would build a wall on the US-Mexico border so tall that no one could scale it – or would regret it if they did, the Daily Beast reported.

    "Once they get up there," Trump said, "there will be no way to get down. Well, maybe a rope, but…"

    Twitter pointed out the lynching undertone in Trump's "rope" reference.
