On Saturday it was carted in front of the White House, where it should be delivered. The assumption was however first denied, said JOrg Waschescio on behalf of the association of the DPA in Washington.
Berlin initiative brings piece of wall for Trump to Washington
The piece of the wall was traveling from Europe to the USA for weeks
«Germany is reunited and in Berlin only isolated pieces remind us that no wall holds forever,» says Trump on the piece of the wall in letter form. "For decades, the United States has played a key role in bringing down this wall (in Berlin). From John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan, the US presidents fought against it. "
The action was intended to remind the president of the USA's commitment to a world without walls and an open society, the association said. It was a "statement against walls in general," not against a specific one, said Waschescio. Trump, however, is pushing ahead with building a wall on the US border with Mexico and repeatedly praising it as "beautiful" and "big."

The Wall segment is on the way to Washington, according to the initiative since October. If the White House does not accept the piece of the wall in the coming days, it will go on a "small tour of the States," said Waschescio. A gift to the president is owned by the American people and they want to make sure that many people see it.
