President Trump on Wednesday made his first public pitch to install solar panels on his border wall with Mexico.
It was the first time that the president mentioned his plan publically. Earlier this month, two congressional Republicans told The Wall Street Journal about the plan after a private meeting with Trump.
“Think of it,” Trump told the audience Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “The higher it goes, the more valuable it is. Pretty good imagination, right?”
The president joked, “This way, Mexico will have to pay much less money, and that’s good. A solar wall. Makes sense.”
