Trump also took to Twitter on Friday morning to quash reality, blaming the press for reporting on his team's confession that the border wall will ultimately be yet another Trump fabrication and failure.
US President-elect Donald Trump says Mexico will "later" repay for the construction of a wall on the US-Mexican border to be built with money from American tax payers.
Despite "making Mexico pay for our expensive wall" turning into one of the most-repeated Trump campaign promises in 2016, much like the specifics of repealing Obamacare, Republicans aren't interested in figuring out the details of how they would actually make that happen. But the quickest regular appropriations legislation lawmakers can move once Trump enters office would be a fiscal 2017 spending bill.
Congressional Republicans have confirmed that they have the legal authorisation to build the wall under the Secure Fence Act was passed by former president George W Bush in 2006. The plan, which is still listed on Trump's website, includes blocking Mexicans living in the United States from sending cash wire transfers back home.
Trump's reference to the project being a "Great Wall" has raised some eyebrows on social media. And despite repeated denials by Mexican officials, including it's current president, that Mexico had no intention of paying for it, Trump insisted he had a plan.
"Sources: Trump will ask Congress, not Mexico, to pay for border wall", read CNN's headline. I'm ready for you to pay for that wall.
Trump's incoming press secretary, Sean Spicer, said on "Good Morning America" today that Trump is working with Republicans in Congress to appropriate funding to build the wall and that the administration will find a way, "whether it's through higher tariffs or a direct check", to get Mexico to reimburse the us for the costs.
A complication to Trump's promise to force Mexico to pay for a wall to divide the two countries: the majority of the 2,000-mile border lies on the Rio Grande. But, as the Associated Press pointed out, the 2006 law authorized building a 700 mile border, and the border between Mexico and America is almost 2,000 miles long.
