Trump Still Claiming Mexico Will Pay for Wall

Some delusions last longer than others, which is to say that some people will continue to shamelessly push a ridiculous claim long after any rational person knows it will never happen. Such is the case with Trump, who wants $18 billion for his border wall and is still insisting that Mexico will pay for it.


President Trump said Saturday that Mexico will pay for his proposed wall on the U.S.–Mexico border, one day after it was reported that he will ask Congress for $18 billion to fund the wall.

“I believe Mexico will pay for the wall. I have a very good relationship with Mexico,” Trump said at a press conference at Camp David on Saturday.

“But yes, in some form, Mexico will pay for the wall.”

No, they won’t. You can repeat this a million times and it will still be a lie. They aren’t going to pay for it, you can’t force them to pay for it and all you’re doing is your usual con man act to convince the ignorant and the credulous otherwise.
