Definitely a huge expense but the jury is still out if it will be of little benefit. Not a Trump supporter but I don't want him to fail
@aidennn_tv It will be an expense for Mexico. We control most of their trade so we make the choices here. Remember tariffs.
@meta_self Trump would have to increase tariffs by a ridiculous amount in order to cover this multi-billion dollar wall and Mexico at any time can cut down on their trade with the US. There is no way "making Mexico pay for the wall" is feasible, especially since their president is dead set against it.
@aidennn_tv lol Mexico depends on the US for trading. It's like ignoring your best customer.
Mexico is not going to pay for this wall so that cost is going to come from tax dollars. Also, his proposed tax on Mexican goods coming across the wall is going to discourage trade with Mexico and risk a friendly relationship with our neighbor. He should not be prioritizing this over more important issues like foreign affairs and healthcare.
@caratara I see why he wants to build it (not that I agree with his reasons) but you're right, it shouldn't be the priority right now. We really really can't afford this project if we intend to pay for it ourselves.
@caratara When the Mexican economy depends on the US the way it does, they're no negation. We have Mexico by the balls so we make the rules. They need us, not the other way around.
