ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- In an apparent mistake, President Donald Trump said his administration is building a wall in New Mexico and Colorado.

The president was speaking at an energy conference in Pittsburgh when he made the claim.

The president said the wall is a reason he believes he will win New Mexico in the 2020 election.

"You know why we're going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on the border of New Mexico," Trump said. " And we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works, you can't get over, you can't get under."

In a tweet Wednesday night, the president said he was joking.
