President Trump says he was just kidding about that border wall in Colorado he confidently touted during an energy conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Wednesday afternoon.

Hours after the event, Trump insisted in an early Thursday morning tweet that he was referring to people from Colorado and Kansas in the very packed auditorium” when he “(kiddingly)” declared “we’re building a Wall in Colorado.”

Trump’s geographical mishap of boasting about a supposed plan to build a wall in Colorado, a landlocked state, happened right as he touted his border wall plans in New Mexico and Texas.

“And we’re building a wall in Colorado,” Trump said. “We’re building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works that you can’t get over, you can’t get under.”

The President then continued without hesitation by bragging that “we’re building a wall in Texas.”
