(NationalSentinel) Seizing on an opportunity to make some money rather than play politics, a Mexican cement company says it has no problem building the border wall proposed by President Donald J. Trump.
As reported by Reuters, the company, Cemex, said it was bidding to do the work:
Mexico’s Cemex, one of the world’s largest cement producers, is open to providing the raw materials for U.S. President Donald Trump’s promised wall between the two neighbors, daily newspaper Reforma reported on Wednesday.
“We will gladly do it,” Cemex President Rogelio Zambrano told the newspaper, when asked if the company would provide a cement estimate for the controversial project, potentially worth billions of dollars.
It was not known which other companies might participate or the likely demand for cement for the wall, Zambrano said.

In a statement, the company said:
“Cemex is not a U.S. construction company; it’s a company that produces materials for construction. To date there are no technical details about said construction and no one has sought us out to participate. If one of our clients asks us to quote materials, we have the responsibility to do so, but that does not imply that Cemex would participate in the construction.”
Because, as officials said, Cemex is not a construction company.
Trump has also repeatedly said that Mexico would pay for the wall, though Mexican government officials have just as frequently said the country would not pay. But its possible one of its businesses might be providing some of the resources for it.
