President Donald Trump pledged to a child attending the White House Easter Egg Roll festivities on Monday, April 22, that he would keep up his work on the southern border wall.
“I will. Oh, it’s happening. It’s being built now,” Trump told the child.
He made the remarks while sitting at a table with kids coloring Easter cards for U.S. troops.
“Here’s a young guy who just said, ‘Keep building that wall.’ Can you believe that? He’s going to be a conservative some day,” Trump said.
Trump has long campaigned on securing the Southern border with Mexico and building a wall.
Congress approved just under $1.4 billion for work on border barricades but Trump has asserted he can use his powers as chief executive to transfer another $6.7 billion to wall construction.
