Obama didn’t become a politician until he was well into his 30s/40s. Trump has lived in the elitist bubble since birth. Not that Waterboy Bert is smart enough to figure that one out.

Trump Has Said Mexico Will Pay for the Border Wall at Least 20 Times Since 2015

President Donald Trump has repeated the campaign rallying cry that Mexico will pay for a border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border since at least 2015.

Earlier this week in a meeting with Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, Trump claimed that he would “shut down the government” on Dec. 21 over border security if Congress does not approve $5 billion in funding for a border wall.

Following his heated demands, the president defaulted to his talking point that Mexico will pay for the wall, in a tweet on Thursday morning. Trump pointed to a new USMCA deal between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada and said, “MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”

The president has made the claim on Twitter, in interviews, and at press conferences and campaign rallies at least 20 times since April 2015.

In April 2015, he said on Twitter that the U.S. would build the border wall and “deduct costs from Mexican foreign aid.” Just days later, he made the same demand in a tweet, while also peddling a false story about ISIS operating training camps near El Paso, Texas.

During his presidential announcement speech on June 16, 2015, Trump said, “I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall.” Trump has fired up his supporters with the anti-immigrant talking point at a number of campaign rallies and in the press since then.

In August 2015, the Trump campaign released its position on immigration reform. Part of the platform was titled, “Make Mexico Pay For The Wall.” During an appearance with CBS’s Face the Nation, Trump doubled down on that policy, and said, “And, by the way, Mexico will pay for it. It’s going to be a great wall,” he added, because “I know how to build.”

In a tweet in January 2016, Trump praised political commentator Ann Coulter—who has platformed white nationalist talking points to her audience—and again said Mexico would pay for the wall.

Months later, in September he tweeted a clip from a campaign rally in Phoenix during which he again said Mexico would pay for a border wall. Within just a few hours, Trump tweeted about the border wall a second time.

In February 2016, he told supporters at a campaign rally in Florida that the “wall just got 10 feet higher” after the former Mexican president said the country would not pay for the wall.

He made the claim during a MSNBC town hall in March 2016. During a Republican retreat in January 2017 in Philadelphia, days after taking office, Trump said the U.S. “will generate revenue from Mexico that will pay for the wall.” He said the same during a joint press conference with the President Sauli Niinistö of Finland in August 2017.

In January 2018, the president told the Wall Street Journal that Mexico would pay for the wall. Earlier this year, the president told his supporters the same at a campaign rally in Nashville.

Yes he did say that. And I have to think he looks farther down his nose than most of us. One of the reasons he is such a successful business man.
The wall will actually pay for itself. If you forget the politics, and use the math, if your IQ is over 25, our tax money will be saved enough to make up for building a barrier that works. It will take some time, but it is true.
So this is the information I am giving you, I hope you get it.


Every new illegal immigrant that enters the United States will cost more than $82,000 each over their lifetime, a conservative think tank that advocates for lower immigration levels has claimed.
The Center for Immigration Studies updated their 2012 analysis which put the average lifetime net fiscal cost of a border crosser at $74,722. In the six years since, the price has jumped to $82,191.
This estimate means that for every 100,000 illegal immigrants that are stopped from crossing the border, it would save taxpayers $8.2 billion over the illegal immigrants’ lifetimes, the report states.
The report also concludes that a southern border wall between the U.S. and Mexico would only have to stop four percent of undocumented migrants, or about 60,000 over the next 10 years, to recoup the cost of President Trump’s $5 billion funding ask.

Cool

He's now saying finally giving us "specifics"

Instead of Mexico paying for the wall, Mexico will pay for it with the new trade deal with Mexico Grin

That hasn't even been ratified yet?

I've got to love the way that the icky-poo dems focus on something that Candidate Trump said when he was a Candidate.  This is one time that I don'/t give a rat's rear end if that part of his promise is not kept.  it's actually up to us, the U.S. citizens to keep our nation safe and defended.  it's not up to any other nation.  It would be loverly if Mexico or any other nation wanted to send money, but it's not their problem  It's ours.  Our Constitution says that we are to "provide for the common defense", and it's way past time that we do that by building an effective wall or barrier to add to our other defensive tools.  If President Trump, I love writing that  Grin  ,  can get Mexico to pay for it with tariffs, etc., then more power to him.  If not, it's something we, as a nation, are supposed to understand that we are responsible to pay for.

Grow up, cheapskates.  Understand your responsibility to keep our nation safe.  Stop hiding behind your sputtering "He lied" when other lies by the opposing party don't bother you.  My Lord, the icky-poo dems ran hil's clinton for POTUS against Donald J. Trump..  Her pants were ablaze almost every time she opened her mouth.  Didn't bother any icky-poo dems at that point.
