President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he “wasn’t kidding” about building a “real wall” along the United States’ southern border. In fact, the president said, “the wall is getting designed right now.”

“It will be a real wall, and a lot of things will happen very positively for your cities, your states, believe me,” Trump said, addressing the Major County Sheriffs’ Association and Major Cities Chiefs Association joint conference.

He said that he “wasn’t kidding” about the wall.

“A lot of people say, oh, oh, Trump was only kidding with the wall. I wasn’t kidding. I don’t kid. I don’t kid,” Trump said. “I watched this and they say I was kidding. No, I don’t kid. I don’t kid about things like that, I can tell you.”
