Trump needs to destroy the cartel’s tunnels underneath the US-Mexico border, then Mexico’s President will have no leverage.
HERE WE GO! MITCH MCCONNELL SAYS CONGRESS MOVING AHEAD WITH $12 – $15 BILLION TO BUILD BORDER WALL
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Thursday that Congress was moving ahead with a plan to build a wall on the southern border of the US. He estimated the cost to be between $12 to $15 billion.
At a press conference with McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, a CNN reporter asked about President Donald Trump’s relationship with Mexico and a pending meeting with the Mexican president that Trump threatened to cancel over the issue of who will pay for the wall.

Via pool: White House's @PressSec says Trump is asking Congress to approve 20% tax on all imports from Mexico to pay for "the wall."

“If you tax that $50 billion at 20 percent of imports, we can do $10 billion a year and easily pay for the wall just through that mechanism alone. That’s really going to provide the funding.”
Reminder: Mexico gladly accepted $75mil of American taxpayer money from Obama to pay for helping secure their southern border. Fuck Enrique Peña Nieto.
