President Trump resurrected one of his favorite lines this Sunday morning, writing on Twitter that Mexico will pay for his planned U.S./ Mexico border wall.
Quite simply, Mexico has no plans to ever pay for the border wall that Trump plans to build. Our southern neighbor has made this clear time and time again.
Nevertheless, Trump wrote the following on Twitter early Sunday:
‘The Democrats don’t want money from budget going to border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members. Eventually, but at a later date so we can get started early, Mexico will be paying, in some form, for the badly needed border wall.’
Glenn Kessler of The Washington Post says that he thinks that this tweetstorm is the first time that Trump has resurrected the claim that Mexico will pay for the wall since January.
The assertion that he made on Sunday is certainly something that he’s made many times before. Mexico has also, as mentioned, asserted time and time again that they have absolutely no intention of paying for the planned wall, ever.
Twitter users were quick to remind Trump on Sunday that his clinging to the idea that Mexico will pay for the wall is borderline insane.
