WASHINGTON D.C. (FoxNews.com) - President Trump on Tuesday reportedly suggested that solar panels could offset some of the costs to erect a border wall on the U.S.'s southern border.
Trump made the pitch on Tuesday during a meeting with congressional Republicans, two lawmakers who attended the meeting told The Wall Street Journal.
The details of the plan were still unclear, but the revenue from selling the solar power generated by the panels could help offset some of the construction costs.
“I think it’s innovative,” House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told the paper. “To authorize it and to appropriate it wouldn’t cost as much.”
