During his visit to the White House on Thursday, Colombian president Juan Santos was asked by reporters whether he believes that building a wall as President Trump plans to do is an effective strategy in the war on drugs.

He avoided outright disagreeing with Trump’s plan to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, but said that he believes “the best way is to collaborate” with other nations.

Santos called it “a world problem,” not just a problem of the United States.

After the Colombian president finished his response, Trump offered his take in blunt fashion.

“That was a long and very diplomatic answer,” he said. “I will say it a little bit shorter:

“Walls work. Just ask Israel.”

“They work, believe me,” Trump went on. “They work. And we have no choice.”

Santos stood there with a forced smile, no doubt feeling disrespected.
