While flying to Paris, France this week, Donald Trump continued the tradition of Presidents chatting with the press corps on Air Force One. Though Trump was speaking off the record at first, a few pieces of his conversation with the press have been released, and they show a different side of President Trump that most Americans don’t get to see.
“A big thing we have with China was, if they could help us with North Korea, that would be great. They have pressures that are tough pressures, and I understand. And you know, don’t forget, China, over the many years, has been at war with Korea — you know, wars with Korea. It’s not like, oh, gee, you just do whatever we say. They’ve had numerous wars with Korea.
He was later asked by a reporter if he was joking when he said he is considering building a wall between the U.S. and Mexico that is made out of solar panels:
“No, not joking, no. There is a chance that we can do a solar wall. We have major companies looking at that. Look, there’s no better place for solar than the Mexico border — the southern border. And there is a very good chance we can do a solar wall, which would actually look good. But there is a very good chance we could do a solar wall.”
