    Trump makes a bewildering confession about who's paying for his border wall

    Trump makes a bewildering confession about who's paying for his border wall

    President Donald Trump on Tuesday seemed to finally admit that Mexico hasn’t paid to build the border wall as he has repeatedly vowed. Then he suggested yet another way he could get the cash: toll booths.

    “And you know, Mexico is paying for the wall,” he said at a rally in North Carolina on Tuesday. “Just so you understand, they don’t say that. They never say it. But we’re gonna charge a small fee at the border. You know, the toll booths.”
    “We’re putting a small toll on and maybe we’re going to do something with remittance,” Trump added. “All the money that we spent on the wall will be coming back.”

    Remittances refer to a tax or fee on payments sent overseas, such as when immigrants working in the United States send money home to family in Mexico, an idea Trump has floated in the past without much success.

    Trump’s promise to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it was a signature theme of his 2016 campaign, leading to chants from the crowd at his rallies. Since the election, USA Today noted, Trump has built 300 miles of wall, although much of that was a replacement for existing border fencing. Just 5 miles are new wall.


    Mexico hasn’t paid for it. Instead, Trump used U.S. taxpayer money for the segments of wall built during his administration and raided billions from his own defense budget to get the cash.

    He also claimed Mexico would pay via the benefits the United States may receive under a renegotiated trade deal, a claim that hasn’t held up to scrutiny. And he’s suggested that Mexico would pay “through longer-term reimbursement.” That also did not happen.

    Trump’s confession on Tuesday suggests he realizes that even his supporters know Mexico hasn’t paid a peso for the wall.

    Five miles of new wall is really weak and the larger sections of referbished walls were already budgeted for by Congress before Trump came along I believe.

    Yep, I suspect 5 miles of new wall is far from what most of us expected!

    We need to SHUT DOWN all immigration, refugees, TPS, asylum, and illegal aliens.

    Sign an EO to stop it all now! No more visas!

    No more giving away our citizenship to over ONE MILLION foreigners every year! Then add in their offspring. This is crushing us! We have no housing, it is expensive to live here, we cannot afford our own bills.

    No foreign aid. No more nation building, no money to the corrupt U.N.

    We have massive fires in the West, hurricanes, tornados, floods, all over this country.

    CUT OFF ALL OUR MONEY FUNDING FOREIGN COUNTRIES!

    We have hundreds of thousands displaced, out of work, lost their homes!

    I am sick of being the door mat, ATM machine, and dumping ground for the worlds problems and their citizens.


    NO MORE PEOPLE COMING HERE! PUT A PAUSE ON ALL OF IT!


    We need to spend our money on our soil and help American's First now more than ever and rebuild this country using our blood, sweat, and tears! Get people off the damn welfare and food stamps, no more welfare breeders! It is disgusting we are forced to pay for this while they do not work.


    Convert our empty mall parking lots into temporary housing for campers and RV's. Many are fleeing that have their own home on wheels. Set up FEMA trailers there. Plenty of parking and access to power and water.

    Where are OUR citizens going to live in this massive crisis spread out across America!


    Get these illegal aliens and UACs out of our Detention Centers. Send them home immediately! We should be using those facilities for our homeless Veterans and Seniors...NOT illegal aliens who are liars and have no right to be here. These blood suckers need to go home and let their president house and feed them and get on birth control! No vacancy!
