President Trump proposed meeting Democrats half-way on funding the border wall, but his plan to build alternating segments rather than a continuous barrier was met with criticism Tuesday night.
Though the plan would save $2.5 billion, cutting the proposed budget in half, it “lacks a certain element of security,” officials admitted.
Trump’s initial proposal to save money by building a continuous wall measuring four feet high was scrapped early on, a spokesperson said. “This new one will be easier to paint,” said Trump.
