President Trump said Sunday that his administration is pushing for a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall along the southern border, calling it a “good solution.”
Trump’s declaration came after he spent the day meeting with advisers at Camp David and following meetings between Vice President Pence and Democratic congressional aides.
While Trump suggested the shift in materials might appease Democrats, the party has opposed the wall as a matter of effectiveness.
“We’ve been in touch with a lot of people and I informed my folks to say that we’ll build a steel barrier, steel, that it will be made out of steel, that it will be less obtrusive and stronger,” Trump told reporters at the White House upon returning from Camp David.
Trump said steel would “give us great strength,” and suggested that Democrats opposed a concrete barrier. “They don’t like concrete, so we’ll give them steel,” Trump said, saying the material will look “beautiful” and be “stronger” than concrete.
