not playing this "I dont understand what you are saying" game.So you own clothes, another party loses your clothes, they give you money replace your lost clothes, and then they find your clothes and they give you back your old clothes and don't ask you for the money back for the new clothes......and in your mind you are one who ultimately paid for the new clothes? Even though your bank account shows a zero balance for those new clothes?Let me make it a little easier for you to get the point.Trump never said Mexico would write a check for the wall. Anyone who thought that was what he meant is simply a partisan Trump Hater. He said they will pay for the wall. Like when someone says "you will pay for this"....they dont mean in cash or check...they mean they will pay for it in some way shape or form.Trump pledged to build “a beautiful, gorgeous, big wall” on the southern border ... "and I'll have Mexico pay for that wall!"Hey....lets look at the facts.Trump kept taking about infrastructure:... Why didn’t Trump and Republicans do INFRASTRUCTURE instead of that stupid wall?...
In 2016, Trump promised a $1 trillion infrastructure plan that would use tax incentives to spur private investment in public works projects... [In 2020,] Trump outlined a new $1 trillion plan for spending on roads, rails, water systems and other infrastructure. This time, [Trump] is proposing to rely fully on federal spending... Trump doesn't spell out how to pay for it all.
Mexicans would have laughed in his face when he raved that he would make them pay for America's infrastructure.
Oh, wait!... Yep, he may as well have well pretended he'd make them pay for America's infrastructure!
Just wait until Trumpies finally get around to uncovering evidence of their vast election conspiracy, providing the documentation of the stolen "Landslide!", justifying the removal of President Biden, and re-instating the failed casino operator and faded reality tv entertainer, so that he can resume talking about rebuilding the infrastructure.
Oddly, the rabid Trumpies' progress in that mission is every bit as as clandestine as the mysterious conspiracy that demands it.
Trump made a deal with Mexico to keep the migrants in their country until asylum requests were processed.
Now, under Biden, we are spending 60 million a week to house and feed them.
60 million a week is close 3/4 billion a year.
So it seems Trump had Mexico pay for 1/3 the wall each year....and over 3 years? Paid for by Mexico.
Do the math.
By the numbers:
The International Boundary and Water Commission estimates that the southern border is about 1,954 miles long.CBP estimates that the Trump administration secured a total of $15 billion in U.S. funds for the project, enough to build 738 miles of wall.Most of that amount went to maintenance.Trump used 100% U.S, taxpayer money to pay for his 40 miles of new fencing along the 1,954 miles of border.When will the vast election conspiracy be exposed by his fawning officeholders, prosecutors, compliant media outlets, and intrepid investigative supporters, and Trump's "Landslide!" be confirmed?
When he is re-installed, will he make Mexico pay for the remaining 1,914 miles of his "beautiful, gorgeous, big wall"?
Are you saying Mexico did NOT pay for the beautiful wall?
So Trump said to Mexico....we no longer will pay for the housing of these migrants at 60 Million a week. Stop the surge on your southern border or house them on your side of the border or we will no longer send you money.
And they agreed.
Saves us 60 Million a week. And after 3.5 years, it pays for the wall.
Thats what "pay for" is all about in the business world.
So Mexico paid for the wall, is that what you're saying? Even though all the money came fro the US taxpayers you're saying Mexico paid for it?
If you flew Delta Airlines...and they lost your luggage....
And so you paid for new clothes for your vacation......and they found your luggage a month later...yet they compensated you for the cost of your new clothes even though you now have your old clothes.......
Who paid for the new clothes?
Its really not that difficult to understand.
We paid 3.5 billion for the wall and Mexico paid a similar amount to house the migrants that we would have otherwise paid for.
You just dont want to see it.
No not difficult, I PAID FOR ALL MY CLOTHES!!!
Run with that.
I bought the clothes and the US taxpayers paid for any and all new wall at the boarder.
Cool, so we are in agreement, Mexico didn't pay for the wall.
