CNN’s Acosta: Trump’s Steel Slat Barrier Looks Like Something Out of Medieval Times

‘It is sort of a strange concept there, but the president is saying he won’t obviously demand at this point a physical wall’

EXCERPT:

ACOSTA: "Now, in just the last hour, Wolf, as we have been showing our viewers, the President tweeted out what he hopes to be some kind of compromise or perhaps the makings of a compromise. He tweeted out this image of what he calls a steel-slat barrier. Wolf, after months and months on the campaign trail, of hearing the President saying he is going to build a wall and have Mexico pay for it, this is where we stand tonight just before a Government shutdown. The President says he is willing to accept the steel-slat barrier which looks like something out of medieval times. It is sort of a strange concept there, but the President is saying he won’t obviously demand at this point a physical wall, that he could go with this steel-slat barrier instead.”
