Trump suggested that the Spanish government should follow his policies regarding migration and build a wall across the Sahara desert.
According to Spanish newspaper, El Pais, Borrell said President Trump told him to "build a wall in the Sahara", before stating that "The border with the Sahara can not be bigger than ours with Mexico".
Trump also brushed off the suggestion that the size of the Sahara would make it a hard task, by saying: "The Sahara border can't be bigger than our border with Mexico".
The US-Mexico border is a little under 2,000 miles long.
A wall across the Sahara would probably also involve building through several sovereign nations.
The Sahara desert extends for almost 3,000 miles across the African continent.

According to Borrell, who was said to have made the remarks on Tuesday during a lunch at Club Siglo XXI in Madrid, while referring to the increase in the number of African youth migrants, Trump made the remark recently.

The Spanish Embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but the Spanish Foreign Ministry told Britain's Guardian newspaper that the accounts of Borrell's comments were accurate.
It would be similar to Trump's planned wall across the US-Mexico border to stop illegal immigration. Spain has two enclaves - the cities of Ceuta and Melilla - on the North African coast.
Spain's politicians have agreed a solution needs to be found to deal with the migration crisis, with Africa's population set to double in the next 20 years.
