Does everyone remember the whole Obamacare threat that they would be imposing a fine on anyone who did not have insurance and failed to register with the Unaffordable Healthcare Act? Everyone at the time asked, “Well, what if I just don’t have the money?” Easy, the government answered quickly. We’ll just take it out of your tax return!”
When Trump first approached the subject of having Mexico pay for the border wall in the south, everyone scoffed. That is, until he explained that, just because they wouldn’t be paying a bill that was sent to their mailbox didn’t mean they wouldn’t be paying for it. He elucidated that Mexico would be paying in tariffs and taxes on imports. The most prolific trading partner to Mexico is the United States. If they wanted to keep that relationship as profitable for themselves as it already was, they would have to make the important decision to either pay to put up the wall, or suffer a trade issue of colossal proportions.
In a statement released this week, the Mexican foreign minister once again reiterated that the nation of drug cartels and violence would never pay for this wall. Even former president Vicente Fox had said in January that “Mexico would never pay for that f**king wall!”
The Daily Caller:
The government of Mexico responded to President Donald Trump’s call Sunday for the nation to pay for a wall along the southern border of U.S. and Mexico.
The Mexican foreign ministry strongly asserted Sunday evening that it would not pay for a wall “under any circumstances.”
Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon that “we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other.” He also called Mexico one of the “highest crime nations in the world.”
A wall along the southern nation’s border was one of the president’s main campaigning points, and he has called on Congress time and again to allocate funds for its construction.
Former President of Mexico Vicente Fox has repeatedly lashed out at the president for claiming that Mexico will pay for the wall and for his comments about the Mexican people during his 2016 bid for the presidency.
With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other.

Interestingly, Mexico has been hot under the collar ever since election night when it really, sincerely believed the Fake News Industrial Complex claims that Hillary was a shoe-in and that Donald Trump’s supporters would be sorely disappointed because their viewpoints were not valid and did not square up with the majority of Americans.
Fortunately for America, most Mexicans were not able to vote (at least legally) in our elections, so the majority actually won for once. Trump was elected and now the Mexican government (like most of our Leftists in this country) is in denial. Perhaps that will change when the tariffs and taxes begin weighing heavily upon Mexican imports.
