Building a border wall between the United States and Mexico was Donald Trump’s primary campaign promise. Trump promised his supporters that Mexico would pay for the wall at every rally, the crowd would even chant it.
Obviously none of this came true because the Government is now on day 20 of the shut down because of wall funding. Democrats refuse to give Trump the $5 billion needed to start building the wall.
“During the campaign, I would say Mexico is going to pay for it, obviously I never said this, and I never meant they’re going to write out a check. I said they’re going to pay for it. They are,” President Trump said.
Christina Wilkie pointed out on Twitter than Donald Trump is wrong. In a 2016 Trump campaign memo, Donald Trump claims Mexico will make a “onetime payment” of $5-$10 billion” for the wall.
President Trump is now heading to the southern border for a photo op to gain support for his border wall.
At the same time, MSNBC also found new photos that show Trump’s border wall prototypes have huge faults with security.
