US President denies abandoning plan for "concrete wall" along border with Mexico

US President Donald Trump on Monday denied abandoning his plan for a "concrete wall" along the border with Mexico and said that part of the proposed barrier will be 'see-through'.

Trump said this in a tweet after his outgoing chief of staff Gen (rtd) John Kelly said the idea of the concrete wall was abandoned very early in the Trump Administration.

Trump has been seeking a USD5 billion in Congressional funding for the wall, which he believes is essential to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the US.

The opposition Democratic party has opposed such a funding and blocked its passage from the Congress. The stalemate has resulted in a partial federal government shutdown for more than a week now.

The Democratic party enjoys a majority in the US House of Representatives.
