French-Swiss group LafargeHolcim is ready to sell its cement to build US President Donald Trump’s controversial border wall, the company’s CEO has said in an interview to AFP.
The wall that President Trump promised to erect along the US-Mexico border, valued at tens of billions of dollars, is at the centre of a diplomatic crisis between Mexico City and Washington and is provoking criticism around the world.
“We are prepared to supply our materials to all types of infrastructure projects in the United States,” LafargeHolcim chief Eric Olsen told AFP. “We are the leader in cement, so we supply all our customers,” he said. “We are here to support the building and development of the United States,” he added.
