Donald Trump Mexico wall – Mexico says will not pay for US border wall

ViewsHeadlines Desk,

Washington: Donald Trump, the US president elect has been claiming that he will be building a wall separating United States and Mexico. He has also been claiming that he will make Mexico pay for his (mis)adventure.

While he has repeatedly said even in recent weeks that he plans to go ahead and build the wall to stop the flow of illegal immigrants from the neighboring country, Mexico has refused to pay for the proposed wall.

A few days ago, the president elect criticized the media, a frequent target, in a tweet for reports that U.S. taxpayers could get stuck paying the bill. Trump in the tweet said, “Dishonest media says Mexico won’t be paying for the wall if they pay a little later so the wall can be built more quickly. Media is fake!”

In the meantime Trump’s team and congressional Republicans are working on a plan in which taxpayers — at least initially — would foot the bill. But Trump has claimed repeatedly that Mexico would eventually pay for the wall.

On the other hand Mexico has repeatedly said it will not pay for the wall. Mexico’s new Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said there is “no way” his country will pay for the wall that US President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to build on the United States’ southern border to keep out illegal immigrants. The newly appointed Mexican Foreign Minister went on to reiterate his government’s position that it would not pay for the wall.

This is completely opposed to what Trump said on Friday that Mexico would repay the US for his planned border wall, a day after news emerged that his transition team was exploring getting the Republican-led Congress to vote to approve the funding. Republicans have majority in both Congress and the Senate. The border the U.S. shares with Mexico is about 2,000 miles long.
