Over the weekend, Congress is looking to appropriate funding to build the wall at the US / Mexican border, using the Secure Fence Act of 2006 as their guide. Trump was supportive of this move, but the mainstream media portrayed it that The Donald was going back on a campaign promise of forcing Mexico to pay for the wall. Here is Trump’s response to the mainstream media on Twitter:
Dishonest media says Mexico won't be paying for the wall if they pay a little later so the wall can be built more quickly. Media is fake!

So what do you think?
Do you think it’s better for the US to front taxpayer money now to build the wall Spring 2017, like Donald Trump is suggesting, and having Mexico pay us back later?
Or should we wait for Trump to close the deal with Mexico first and wait for the funds to come from them, saving US taxpayer funds?
