Trump wants taxpayers to pay for the US-Mexico border wall

The incoming Trump administration may seek help from Congress to pay for a wall along the US-Mexico border, according to Republican lawmakers cited by Politico and CNN on Thursday.

In Donald Trump’s campaign he said several times that Mexico would pay for the wall, although things have changed because his administration is now saying that US taxpayers will be paying for the US-Mexico border wall.

Trump says that Mexico will pay for the wall after it is complete, because this will faster.

It is estimated that the wall would cost $14 billion from public funds. Trump has yet to comment on how he will make the Mexican government repay the US.

In December, he claimed parts of the wall he pledged to build would not be needed due to “mountains” and “vicious rivers” in some areas.
