Donald Trump’s campaign released a memo on Tuesday that said it would force Mexico to pay for a border wall by threatening to cut off billions of dollars in money transfers that Mexicans who are living in the U.S. send home.Donald Trump’s critics say Mexico can’t or won’t pay for a wall at the border, which he says is hogwash.”When they say ‘but Mexico can’t pay for the wall,’ I say of course they can,” said the Republican frontrunner at a town hall in Norwalk, Iowa, on Jan. 20. “We have a trade deficit with Mexico that’s unbelievably big. Humongous. It’s a humongous number. It’s billions and billions of dollars — far more than what we’re talking about for the wall. The wall’s peanuts compared to that.”

“Mexico currently receive $24 billion in remittance payments annually from the United States. This provides substantial leverage for the United States to obtain from Mexico the funds necessary to pay for a border wall,” his campaign said in a statement.
If elected president, the memo explains, Trump would threaten to change a rule under the Patriot Act to cut off some of the money Mexico receives through wire transfers. The memo said the majority of the $24 billion a year “comes from illegal aliens” that they send back to their families.
But if Mexico agrees to make a one-time payment for the border wall, Trump’s campaign said he wouldn’t move forward with the rule change.
“It’s an easy decision for Mexico: make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year,” the memo says.
Trump regularly tells voters he’ll make Mexico pay for the wall, but this memo has more detail than he has ever offered on how he’d actually do it. The memo even has a brief timeline: on day one, he’d announce the proposed rule change to the Patriot Act; on day two, Mexico “will immediately protest;” and on day three, Trump would tell Mexico that if it pays for the wall, he won’t make the rule change.
Here is a video that show us how would the wall can be build and with how much money.
So with the conclusion that the wall can be build then what is your opinion would you like Trump to build the wall on the Mexico border vote now!
