    Trump Backtracks Further On Border Wall Promises, Says He 'Never Meant Mexico Would Write A Check' I6ke0

    From Business Insider

    Bob Bryan of Business Insider wrote:President Donald Trump backed further away from his long-held promise to make Mexico pay for a wall along the U.S. border on Thursday, contradicting one of his oldest political promises.

    During a question and answer session with reporters before heading to McAllen, Texas, on Thursday, Trump claimed he never meant Mexico would pay for the wall directly.

    "When during the campaign, I would say Mexico is going to pay for it, obviously I never said this and I never meant they're going to write out a check," Trump said. "I said they were going to pay for it, they are, they're paying for it with the incredible deal we made called the United States-Mexico-Canada, USMCA deal."

    But as far back as Trump's presidential announcement, the president made it clear that Mexico would be funding the wall.

    "I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I'll have Mexico pay for that wall," Trump said in June 2015.

    Additionally, the Trump campaign released a plan designed to coerce Mexico to make a direct $5 billion to $10 billion payment that would go toward the wall.

    "It's an easy decision for Mexico: make a one-time payment of $5- 10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year," a plan from the campaign reads.

    Later, Trump began to say that Congress would appropriate funds for the wall and then Mexico would pay that money back at a later date.

    "The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!" Trump tweeted in January 2017.

    But now Trump no longer argues that will be the case. Recognizing that Mexico will never pay directly for the border wall, Trump has seemingly been testing various arguments that Mexico will somehow pay for the border wall indirectly.

    The latest of Trump's suggestions is that the newly updated North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico, now known as the USMCA, will pay for the wall. But economists and trade experts say that claim doesn't stand up to scrutiny, because the new agreement is a minor update to the existing trade deal and won't create a substantial amount of economic growth.

    Additionally, in that scenario, the money would still come from the American public's taxes rather than Mexico.

    The scam artist-in-chief has struck again, and his base could care less.

    He made this campaign promise in 2015 that a wall would be built on the southern border and that MEXICO WOULD PAY FOR IT.  He never said about anything about a deal with Mexico and Canada in a revamped version of NAFTA that would pay for the wall, he said MEXICO would pay for it.  So, if I'm a part of his base, I'm gonna believe that Mexico is gonna pay for this wall that Donald Trump promised.  NEWSFLASH: MEXICO has long since vowed that they were not paying for a wall.

    So what is Donald Trump doing?  Let me put this in words my mother would use.  In church and in court, we TESTIFY.  Right now, Donald Trump, on a frequent basis, is gonna TEST-A-LIE.  The man lies so much, even he can't keep up with them.  Gimme a Break!

    Just saying!
