reuters.com reports: U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday he would be “a little bit flexible” on his threat to withdraw from the North American Free Trade Agreement because Mexico is facing a presidential election later this year.
“I understand that a lot of things are hard to negotiate prior to an election,” Trump said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.
"Democrats seem willing to consider a border wall"
Democrats seem willing to consider a border wall, they tell press at the stakeout area outside the West Wing. "Democrats are all for border security and border security can means many things," says minority Whip leader Hoyer.
As President Trump makes his final decision on which company to award with the border wall contract, the prototypes are being put through the wringer.
All types of tests are being conducted on the walls, to ensure they can hold up to the smugglers and drug lords they spend their days trying to defeat them.
washingtonexaminer.com reports: Border Patrol agents are pummeling the prototypes for President Trump's proposed southern border wall with jackhammers and saws as they physically test the structures for strengths and weaknesses, according to Custom and Border Protection officials.
“CBP is testing the prototypes against the techniques used by smugglers on the southwest border to circumvent [the] current border barrier,” Carlos Diaz, CBP Southwest Branch chief, told the Washington Examiner on Wednesday, referring to eight samples constructed by six companies in San Diego, Calif.
Tests of the 18-to-30 feet high walls conducted over the next 30 to 60 days will also include CBP tactical unit agents scaling the structures with ropes and hooks, per Newsweek.
