President Donald Trump was on Twitter this morning and made a bold statement that Mexico is still paying for the wall. He specifically said, "I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!"

I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!

There has been a lot of back and forth arguments among readers, pundits, and commentators on if Mexico is actually paying for the wall. It remains to be seen what further plan of action Trump has. He is currently trying to get more funding, but Democrats are not interested in providing a solid structure to support border security.

Trump's deal with Mexico might indirectly pay for the wall.

Trump has also threatened to use the military to build the wall. He has also threatened to shut down the Government if Democrats do not agree to proper funding for border security.

Trump wants his wall and he wants to decrease illegal immigration more than anything.
