Close to fulfilling the poll promise of building a wall at the US-Mexico border, President of the United States Donald Trump on Thursday said that he would add solar panels to his long-promised southern wall which would help pay for the construction of the wall.
"Build that wall" chants echoed throughout the Iowa rally as the president promised to keep his famous campaign pledge to build the wall, which he said "we've already started planning". "And this way, Mexico will have to pay much less money".
"Pretty good imagination, right?" he said "Good?"
Much has been said of the wall that will prevent Mexicans to head over to the US without documentation, and now it appears it may use solar energy to power the region.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday and called Mexico the "second most risky country in the world", then reaffirmed his administration's commitment to making it harder for anyone to leave. One of the original plans is from Las Vegas construction company Gleason Partners, which submitted a design earlier this year to the federal government along with around some 20 other companies.
"We're thinking of something that's unique, we're talking about the southern border, lots of sun, lots of heat".
Shares are also trading higher in advance of the Intersolar North America trade show next month in San Francisco and as module prices rise over concerns that a pending trade case could lead to tariffs on solar cells imported in the U.S., Osborne said.
The cost of the solar installation would be between US$1.4 billion and US$4.2 billion, not including the cost of the wall, according to the report.
Trump appeared to refer to a report released May 9 by the London-based International Institute for Strategic Studies, which concluded that criminal violence in Mexico had reached "a level akin to armed conflict".
Trump repeatedly described solar power during the campaign as "very, very expensive" and "not working so good". "The truth is, the people love us", Mr Trump crowed to the Iowa gathering.
"I think we could make it look attractive, too", he added.
