President Trump Says Construction on Mexico Border Wall Will Start ‘Within Months’

THIS POST WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON THIS SITE Click Here To Read Entire Article

In his first television interview since taking office, President Donald Trump said the construction on a wall at the United States-Mexico border will begin “within months.”

ABC News published an excerpt from the interview on Wednesday morning. Trump’s full sit-down with anchor David Muir will air as a primetime special Wednesday night at 10pm ET.

When asked when construction would begin, Trump replied, “as soon as we can, as soon as we can physically do it.”

“I would say in months, yeah. I would say in months,” the president added. “Certainly planning is starting immediately.”

Trump also admitted U.S. taxpayers would foot the cost of the wall and Mexico would pay the U.S. back “100 percent.” Exactly what form that reimbursement would be was unclear.

“All it is, is we’ll be reimbursed at a later date from whatever transaction we make from Mexico,” he said. “I’m just telling you there will be a payment. It will be in a form, perhaps a complicated form. What I’m doing is good for the United States. It’s also going to be good for Mexico. We want to have a very stable, very solid Mexico.”

Enrique Peña Nieto, the President of Mexico, has said that his country will “of course not pay” for the wall.

Securing the United States border was a campaign promise made by Trump during the election, with his supporters frequently chanting “build the wall” at his rallies.
