President Donald Trump signed one of the posts of the U.S.–Mexico border wall with a sharpie in Otay Mesa, California, on Sept. 18.
The president was visiting California for a fundraiser in Los Angeles, followed by a fundraiser in San Diego, and later visited the border wall on Wednesday. He autographed the wall with a sharpie and followed it with a press conference.
Trump applauded the building process and invited reporters to have a close look at the materials used for building the wall.
“If you think you’re gonna cut it with a blowtorch that doesn’t work because you hit concrete,” he said, adding that it is not possible to even cut through the concrete because it is reinforced with rebar.
