The border wall with Mexico can’t be built fast enough. We’ve seen thousands upon thousands of people illegally enter the U.S. in recent months, increasing the need for a border wall sooner rather than later. One young man that met President Donald Trump in Sunday seems to agree.

Trump, First Lady Melania Trump and the Easter Bunny met with children on the White House lawn on Sunday for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

One child reportedly told Trump to “keep building that wall” while coloring cards intended for members of the military. The president not only responded to the child but told reporters about the interaction.

“It’s happening,” Trump told the young boy. “It’s being built right now.”

Amused by the interaction, Trump looked at up at the cameras and said, “There’s a young guy just said, ‘Keep building that wall.’ You believe this? He’s gonna be a conservative someday.”

You can watch the exchange below:

 

Even if you’re not a fan of the president, little interactions like this, that show a slightly different side to Trump, might even soften the most calcified attitude towards the Commander-in-Chief.
