Guess what? Donald Trump is not going to make Mexico pay for his wall. Trump is going to make the U.S. taxpayer, namely you, pay for his wonderful wall.
President Trump frequently said Mexico would pay for a wall along the southern border as he sought the presidency in 2016. Now, he is privately pushing the U.S. military to fund construction of his signature project.
Trump, who told advisers he was spurned in a large spending bill last week when lawmakers appropriated only $1.6 billion for the border wall, has begun suggesting that the Pentagon could fund the sprawling construction, citing a “national security” risk. The Washington Post
Trump is just another politician breaking another political promise.
