The president also discussed the Camp David meeting on Twitter, pointing to infrastructure, immigration and border security as upcoming agenda items.
If border crossings are under better control without a wall, thus helping realize Trump's mission on immigration, his continued insistence on building one smacks of vanity to get his way.
