Trump says wall can be made of steel instead of concrete

President Trump on Sunday (January 6) signaled some compromise in ending U.S. government shutdown, now entering its third week, saying that there is a possibility of changing the construction materials used to build a barrier on the border with Mexico, that it could be “made of steel instead of concrete.”

Speaking to reporters on the White House lawn before boarding a helicopter to Camp Davis, Trump also said that trade talks with China were going very well and that weakness in the Chinese economy gave Beijing a reason to work toward a deal.

Trump said the U.S. is scouting sites for a potential summit with the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
