"Finally, as part of an overall approach to border security, law enforcement professionals have requested five-point-seven-billion-dollars for a physical barrier. At the request of Democrats, it will be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall. This barrier is absolutely critical to border security," Trump said.
"It's also what our professionals at the border want and needs. The border wall would very quickly pay for itself. The cost of illegal drugs exceeds five-hundred-billion-dollars a year. Vastly more than the five-point-seven-billion-dollars we have requested from Congress," Trump added.
"The wall will also be paid for indirectly by the great new trade deal we have made with Mexico," Trump explained.
"Senator Chuck Schumer, who you will be hearing from shortly, has repeatedly supported a physical barrier in the past along with many of Democrats," Trump said.
"They change their mind only after I was elected President," Trump added.
