My wall can be steel ‘if that helps people’ Trump offers and said he plans to call companies to ask them to design a ‘beautiful’ template to use for his barrier

  • President Trump said his border wall can be built of steel instead of concrete 
  • ‘The barrier or the wall can be steel instead of concrete if that helps people. It may be better,’ he said
  • He also said he intends to call steel companies and ask them to design a template that can be used for his border wall 

President Donald Trump said on Sunday his border wall can be built of steel instead of concrete. 

‘The barrier or the wall can be steel instead of concrete if that helps people. It may be better,’ the president said at the White House before he left for Camp David for a staff retreat. 

He said he plans to call steel companies to ask them for a design for his wall.

‘I intend the call the heads of United States Steel and a couple of other of our great steel companies. I will have them come up with a template or design of a beautiful steel product, which we now may use and use that as our barrier,’ he said. 

In his remarks the president touted how great U.S. steel companies were doing under his administration.

During the 2016 campaign Trump vowed to bring back steel jobs, a promise that helped him win manufacturing states like Pennsylvania. 

‘This wall will pay for itself many times during the course of the year,’ he vowed. 

Trump had once vowed to build a concrete border wall, but now says it will be made of steel slats. 

Acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney said on Sunday the construction materials could be changed in order to reach a compromise between Democrats and the president. 

‘If he has to give up a concrete wall, replace it with a steel fence in order to do that so that Democrats can say, ‘See? He’s not building a wall anymore,’ that should help us move in the right direction,’ Mulvaney said on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press.’
