Treasury yields fell slightly on Wednesday as investors digested remarks from President Donald Trump.
The yield on the benchmark 10-year Treasury note traded at 2.18 percent at 2:19 p.m. ET, while the yield on the two-year note was lower at 1.313 percent. Bond yields move inversely to prices.
At a rally in Phoenix, Trump said he would keep his campaign promise of building a border wall even "if we have to close down our government." Trump also said he doubts a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement is possible.
Trump's remarks came after the administration has faced a couple of turbulent weeks due to a shakeup in staff and comments made Trump following the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.
