In a very expected turn of events for anyone who knows Donald Trump talks out of his ass on the regular, guess who the president-elect plans on having pay for his infamous Mexico-United States border wall?
That’s right? You. The taxpayer.
We all remember Trump saying at about every speech during his campaign that he’s going to build a big, beautiful wall, but the biggest part about that promise was that he was going to make Mexico pay for it.
Well, it seems that may be his latest broken campaign promise because sources out of Trump’s transition team are telling a very different tale.
According to CNN:
“President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team has signaled to congressional Republican leaders that the President-elect’s preference is to fund the border wall through the appropriations process as soon as April, according to House Republican officials.”
“The Trump team argues it will have the authority through a Bush-era 2006 law to build the wall, lawmakers say, but it lacks the money to do so. Transition officials have told House GOP leaders in private meetings they’d like to pay for the wall in the funding bill, a senior House GOP source said.”
That’s right, the American taxpayers will being paying for the wall if plans go through and its actually funded. Trump’s hasn’t only broken his biggest promise to his supporters, but he literally seems to want to make them pay for it.
Now, everyone who knew Trump was full of shit from the get-go could have told you this is what was going to happen, because you can’t force another nation to build a wall inside your country, but Trump supporters never really could wrap their heads around common sense and reason.
This is likely just one more of the many broken promises we’re going to see coming out of the Trump administration.
