President Trump has said that America would build a border wall between the US and Mexico, and that Mexico would pay for it!
That statement has caused a lot of controversy, discussion, and disagreement and President Trump has taken a lot of criticism. Democrats, Republicans, and even the President of Mexico are flat out denying that Mexico would fund it.
And yet there is the possibility that Trump could be 100% correct in his assertion that Mexico would, indeed, pay for the wall. “They don’t know it yet, but they are going to pay for it.”
As Joe For America explains:
No one has been as hard on Trump as I have, but people complaining about the $15 Billion to build the wall are MORONS! Trump is not always the best at explaining himself, but he will be making Mexico pay for that wall.
MANY times over. The MSM has been all over itself trying to condemn Trump for not making Mexico write a check. That is never how it was meant!
If you give your child an allowance, and then buy them a car, and then cut that allowance to pay for it…. They are paying for that car.
Almost $25 Billion flowed in 2015 from the pockets of Mexicans living in the U.S. Estimates put 2016 at $28 Billion. That’s even higher than what Mexico earns from its oil exports. That is per year! Mexico is the world’s 12th largest oil exporter. It only collected $23.2 billion from exporting oil in 2015.
Add it up folks! At the least in 10 years that is a portion saved from a conservative $300 Billion and that $15 Billion wall will cost 5%, a fraction of that! (Even taking into account that government never gets pricing right and that wall could cost $30 Billion to build, that would be 10%. Credit where credit is due, Trump is an expert at doing things within budget.)
That does not include fixing the trade imbalance. The U.S. goods trade deficit with Mexico was $58 billion in 2015. Add that up over 10 years on a wall that will last decades! The math is very simple. It is not Common Core math! Mexico will pay for that wall many times over.
Watch the video explaining the mechanics of building the wall.
As far as the costs of building the wall, Joe For America put it this way:
Important to note that Trump says the wall will cost $10 Billion. Mitch McConnell estimated it will cost $15 billion at most — he cited a range of $12 billion to $15 billion. Some are claiming it will cost $25-30 Billion. It is all irrelevant as none of those figure come close to the hundreds of billions Mexico will lose in the long run.
The world is becoming an increasingly hostile and dangerous place and America’s border security is an important issue that even the Founding Fathers agreed with. America can absorb only so many of the world’s poor and controlling the flow of human traffic across our borders is the only way to keep the numbers at manageable levels.
At this point, a border wall is about the only way to achieve that!
