President-elect Donald Trump says construction of the U.S.-Mexico border wall will begin immediately after he takes office Jan. 20.
“On the ‘fence’—it’s not a fence. It’s a wall. You just misreported it. We’re going to build a wall,” Trump said during a Wednesday press conference at Trump Tower in New York City.
Year - Half - Negotiations - Mexico - Office
“I could wait about a year and a half until we finish our negotiations with Mexico, which will start immediately after we get into office. But I don’t want to wait. Mike Pence is leading an effort to get final approvals through various agencies and through Congress for the wall to begin.”
“I don’t feel like waiting a year or year and a half. We’re going to start building,” Trump added.
Mexico - Form - Forms - Cost - Wall
“Mexico, in some form, and there are many different forms, will reimburse us. And they will reimburse us for the cost of the wall,” he continued. “That will happen, whether it’s a tax or whether it’s a payment. Probably less likely that it’s a payment. But it will happen.”
“So remember this: I would say, ‘We’re going to build a wall.’ And people would go crazy. And then I would say, ‘Who’s going to pay for the wall?’ And people would all scream out—25,000, 30,000 people ’cause nobody has ever had crowds like Trump has had, you know that. You don’t like to report that… But I said, ‘Who’s going to pay for that wall?’ And they will scream out: ‘Mexico,'” Trump said.
Wall - Year - Half - Deal - Mexico
“I want to get the wall started,” he said. “I don’t want to wait about a year and a half until I make my deal with Mexico.”
