President-elect Donald Trump is facing new questions over a central campaign promise: that he will build a sturdy wall on the southwest border and Mexico will pay for it.
But after the Department of Homeland Security announced that it will soon begin soliciting bids “for the design and build of several prototype wall structures in the vicinity of the United States border with Mexico.” every liberal in our country started a vicious attack on our President!
One of the main questions was who’s gonna pay!
Today President Trump gave them the answer loud and clear!
Trump’s remarks came at a White House press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö.
“One way or the other Mexico will pay for the wall,” Trump said. “We’re right now negotiating NAFTA. In my opinion Mexico’s been very difficult, as they should be, why wouldn’t they be?”
With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other.

Trump said “we may fund it through the U.S. but ultimately Mexico will be paying for it.”
House appropriators added $1.6 billion for the wall in a homeland security funding bill, but it still has to go through the Senate.
The fight over wall funding promises to be a contentious issue when Congress comes back from recess in September.
Trump said last week the wall is worth a government shutdown, a claim he repeated Monday.
“If it’s necessary we’ll have to see, but I hope it’s not necessary. The wall is needed from the standpoint of security, the wall is needed from the standpoint of drug — tremendous, the drug scourge,” he said.
President Trump: "One way or the other, Mexico will pay for the wall…It may be through reimbursements."

Regardless of the wall’s exact nature, Americans should be ecstatic that a wall will end up being built.
Our southern border has been wide open for far too long. Millions of individuals, including criminals, gang members, and terrorists, have entered the United States by simply passing over some bushes or a small wire fence.
Once they arrive here, they sell drugs and commit other crimes. Even non-criminal illegal immigrants cause problems by taking jobs and receiving welfare benefits.
Drain the swamp!
