During the election, chants of “build the wall!” became a rallying cry for Donald Trump’s supporters. Although many in the media speculated that President Trump would pivot away from the pledge, early signs show he has no plans of abandoning the idea.
Of course, much has been made of the Mexican government’s opposition to the wall. At one point, the disagreement caused the two sides to mutually cancel a planned visit. However, at least one Mexican company has heard the pleas to build the wall, and they’re willing to help.
A Mexican cement company says it would aid the construction of President Trump’s wall along the U.S.-Mexico border if asked.
“We will gladly do it,” Cemex President Rogelio Zambrano told Mexican newspaper Reforma Wednesday, according to NBC News.
Zambrano was answering whether Cemex, one of the world’s largest cement producers, would provide a cement estimate for the controversial barrier.
