For the entirety of his presidential campaign, Trump has promised his supporters that “Mexico will pay for a wall” along the southern border. In a recent campaign event however, Trump seems to suggest that Americans would be responsible for the full cost of the wall and that hopefully, at some point down the road, Mexico will crouch down in fear of the donald and reimburse the $25 billion price-tag for Trump’s 50 ft wall.
Insanity is abundant in this Republican party.
Donald Trump today indicated, maybe for the first time, that the United States would pay for the border wall with the understanding that Mexico will “reimburse” us for it.
When he mentioned he would set up something that “fully funds” the wall’s construction today, Trump told the crowd, “Don’t worry about it. Remember, I said Mexico’s paying for the wall.”
He added, “With the full understanding that the country of Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such a wall.”
This politician has branded himself as an outsider, but he is playing politics at a master’s level on his unsuspecting base, and his base is too dense to see it.
