During his meeting with FIFA President Gianni Infantino and U.S. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro, Trump answered a question about the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
"Yeah, the wall will be paid for very easily, by Mexico. It'll ultimately be paid for by Mexico."
Funny, Trump had Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on the phone on Monday to announce positive moves toward a trade agreement between the countries, and he didn't mention anything about Mexico paying for the wall. Maybe it's because Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, not even ultimately, according to President Nieto:
President @realDonaldTrump: NO. Mexico will NEVER pay for a wall. Not now, not ever.— Enrique Peña Nieto (@EPN) May 30, 2018
Sincerely, Mexico (all of us).
I wonder why Trump didn't bring it up on his phone call... Could it be because he's a big coward?
