President Trump vowed Thursday to plow ahead with construction of a border wall “one way or the other” even as congressional lawmakers began negotiating a possible border-security compromise — while insisting the project should simply be called a “wall” from here on out.

Trump in recent weeks, in an apparent effort to ease concerns among Democrats who bristle at talk of a border wall, had alternated between calling it a barrier or fence or “steel slats.” On Thursday, he returned to his original language.

“Large sections of WALL have already been built with much more either under construction or ready to go. Renovation of existing WALLS is also a very big part of the plan to finally, after many decades, properly Secure Our Border. The Wall is getting done one way or the other!” he tweeted.
