President Trump privately floated costly and dangerous ideas to stop the flow of migrants from the southern border, reportedly telling senior staff that shooting migrants in the legs to slow them down might work as a deterrent. According to The New York Times, Trump mulled over ideas like fortifying the border wall with a “water-filled trench” with “snakes or alligators” inside, prompting aides to seek a cost estimate for the idea.

He has been psychologically damaged all along. 

There are books about his mental illness at this point. Extreme narcissism is a mental illness.

Also, right after the alligators and spikes conversation, he pulled Kirstjen Nielsen aside and said, "Just shoot them down, Honey.  OK, Sweetheart?  Just shoot them down."  Honey?  Sweetheart?  If that doesn't deserve a foot to the balls, I don't know what does.

Border Wars: Inside Trump’s Assault on Immigration      by Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Michael D Shear, also claims that Mr Trump considered a range of increasingly bizarre border policies – including fortifying the wall      with a moat filled with snakes or alligators .

How about sharks with lasers?
