President Donald Trump found an unlikely supporter of his border wall on Monday: a young attendee of the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
The president joined children to color cards for members of the U.S. military at the event when he said a young man told him “keep building that wall.”
“It’s happening. It’s being built now,” Trump replied, according to the White House print pool.
Trump turned his attention to the crowd and said, “There’s a young guy just said, ‘Keep building that wall.’ Can you believe that? He’s gonna be a conservative someday.”
