President Donald Trump accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of “just playing games” Thursday when she said there won’t be any wall money in the border security deal.
“Nancy Pelosi said this morning that there’s not going to be a wall in this deal, but she did say she’d open to other kinds of physical barriers. Would you accept that?” a reporter asked the president during a cabinet meeting at the White House.
“No,” Trump said, “because if there’s no wall, it doesn’t work. She’s just playing games, so If there’s no wall, it doesn’t work, and we’re building the wall right now. I mean a lot of people don’t know that, but we have a lot of wall under construction. We’ve given out a lot of contracts over the last three, four weeks – good contracts. A lot of wall is soon going to be under construction.
“We’re finishing up design on certain areas. The most important area is the Rio Grande area and others,” he said. “We are building a lot of wall.”
