Trump ‘absolutely’ will seek to get Mexico to pay for border wall

GEOGRAPHY The Trump administration has announced a plan to fund a border wall with Mexico, a move that would likely require congressional approval.

The White House announced the funding Thursday, and the Mexican government announced its support in a statement.

It called the proposal “the most progressive approach to building a wall that has ever been tried.”

It also called the idea “a dream of a generation.”

Trump has made border security a centerpiece of his campaign.

In a recent interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, the president-elect said he would “probably have Mexico pay for it.”

“I will do that,” Trump said.

“I’ve said it before, and I will say it again.

You’re going to have to pay.

I mean, you’re going.

And that’s right, and it’s the most progressive, and that’s the best idea in the world.”

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has said he supports a wall along the southern border, which would cost billions of dollars and take decades to construct.

Trump also called for a wall with China and Mexico to be built on both sides of the border, though that plan has not yet been implemented.
