    A fence and a wall are two very different things though. It will cost way more to construct a wall than a fence primarily used to stop vehicles.

    Personally, if you are using the money that is set aside for their aid, then I'd think that would be considered them paying. Maybe they aren't giving us dollars but it will take a toll. Twisting his words to have a different meaning, maybe he's more politician than we all thought lol.
    If I say you are going to pay for my car do I mean you are going to pay for all of it or just part of it?

    Not my point. And with my bank account they feel the same.

    Either way, you'll never convince me that when Trump said he'd make Mexico pay for it that he only meant they'd pay for part of it. Not one time in his many times speaking on it did he ever suggest that.

    I agree, he definitely put it out there as they are paying for the whole thing. He may not have said it exactly like that but it was implied.

    Please keep a counter going for us, it would be really beneficial because I will lose track otherwise.

    I think Trump just had a play on words with his "they will pay for it" talk. He will now say that although Mexico is not actually writing a check that they're still indirectly paying for the wall from the money the US is going to be saving in other ways with his new policies related to dealing with Mexico.

    This is what I was trying to say. While I'm sure he meant they would literally pay for it, you can still spin it in a way that they are paying for it because they are no longer receiving the aid and that money is going towards the wall.

    I don't really care how we pay for the wall. I think it's probably money well spent compared to the other things we waste it on.

    I don't think he ever said how or when they will pay for it. He just said they will pay for it. It's all about context. Whether they write a check, or take a hit from American businesses jumping ship and not relocating to Mexico, they're still paying for it. The fact that they want to negotiate with him about it says that they can already foresee that they are about to take a major financial hit that will benefit the United States.
