President Donald Trump says his wall on US-Mexico border will cost between $15 and $25 billion, but he won´t pay for it himself.
Trump said Thursday in a news conference that Mexico would bear the full cost of the wall’s construction, and it would be paid for by Mexico.
Trump told reporters that the wall would be built by the Mexican government and built at a cost of between $16 and $20 billion, and Mexico would be reimbursed for the cost.
Trump also said that he will also pay for his proposed border wall with Mexico.
He said he would use his executive authority to pay for the wall by using the $20 trillion annual deficit he inherited from former President Barack Obama.
Trump and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto have both called for the border wall to be built to last.
