Trump said that he would build a wall on the southern border of the country and make the “criminals” and “rapists” in Mexico pay for it.

From there, Mr. Art of the Deal changed his story to taxpayers will put up the money initially, but Mexico will pay us back; which later became Mexico will pay for the wall through import tariffs; which quickly changed to Mexico will pay for the wall indirectly through NAFTA,” which morphed, earlier this month, into the wall will pay for itself. And now, the president has landed on a new idea: make the military pay for it.
