So, about that wall with Mexico.
Donald Trump promised during the campaign that he’d build a big, beautiful wall at the southern border, and that he’d use his magic touch to force the Mexican government to pay for it.
But it turns out that Mexico doesn’t want to. ¡Qué lástima!
So instead, Trump wants American taxpayers to shell out the billions it would cost. His budget request filed on Thursday asked for $2 billion in taxpayer money to begin construction, one of the many outrageous aspects of the proposal. The administration has insisted that Mexico will still pay for the wall, just at some later, unspecified date.
