How Trump plans to fund his border wall: a timeline


I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words. Mexico can pay for the wall, just so you understand. We’re gonna build the wall. Mexico is gonna pay for the wall. One hundred percent. One hundred percent. And yes, we will build a wall. And Mexico is going to pay for the wall. Mexico, in some form, there are many different forms, will reimburse us. And they will reimburse us for the cost of the wall. We will be, in a form, reimbursed by Mexico. They are going to pay for it. I never said they’re going to pay for it from the start. Mexico will pay for the wall, it may be through reimbursement. We need the wall very badly. As you know, Mexico has a tremendous crime problem. In the upcoming omnibus budget bill, Congress must fund the border wall. So we’re building the wall, we’re fixing the wall, we’re spending a lot of money. And we’re going for more. We’re spending $1.6 billion now. There’s a plan for another $1.6 billion, but I’d like to ask this room if we could increase it. We have to have the wall. We’re asking for $5 billion. I would have no problem doing a shutdown. It’s time we had proper border security. The shutdown could also take place after the election. I happen to think it’s a great political thing, because people want border security. We’re talking about the boarding wall — the border wall. We’re talking about quite a big sum of money, about $5 billion. And I think, probably, if I were ever going to do a shutdown over border security, This would be a very good time to do a shutdown. The wall is just a part of border security — a very important part. Probably the most important part. But could there be a shutdown? There certainly could. And it will be about border security, of which the wall is a part. A possible shutdown if we don’t get the wall money, a very possible… We’re in negotiation. If we don’t get border security, possible shutdown

    if you put aside the choreographed twist of the facts, after renegotiating NAFTA, Mexico is paying already for the wall, thanks Mr. President.
