Trump says he will build a wall between U.S. and Mexico
The president says he plans to build a fence along the U.N. border with Mexico.
Trump’s comments came after he told the American Enterprise Institute that the United States and Mexico should work together to secure the border and secure the Mexican people.
Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday that he plans on building a “wall” along the 2,000-mile border to keep out illegal immigrants.
He said that Mexico should pay for the wall and Mexico will “make sure” they get it, but he did not specify what kind of wall he is proposing.
Trump has been critical of the Mexican government since announcing a plan to build the wall in April.
Trump, who has been harshly critical of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, said in April that Mexico was “not going to pay for that wall.”
He said Mexico was not paying for the border wall, and that he would build it himself, saying, “Mexico is not going to do that.”
Mexico has not yet approved the wall.
Trump said that he does not think Pena, who is a Democrat, should pay, but that Pena should make Mexico pay for it.
Mexico has said it will not pay for any wall that is built on U.s. territory.
The U.n. estimates that it could cost as much as $10 billion.
