There is no host for the Academy Awards tonight, but Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey,
“Just a quick update for everybody in case you’re confused,” Rudolph said. “There is no host tonight, there won’t be a popular movie category. And Mexico is not paying for the wall.”
Donald Trump has promised his supporters that Mexico would pay for the border wall during his rallies. The president said Mexico would pay through the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which he signed in November but the deal has yet to be ratified by Congress.
Trump requested that the wall be funded by taxpayers and shutdown the government until Congress allocated money for his wall but no deal was made.
The president declared a national emergency to build his wall and will attempt to direct funds from the military to try and fulfill the promise he made to his supporters.
