Donald Trump attempted to rewrite history by claiming that Mexico may not pay directly for his long promised border wall, but will instead pay for the wall "many times over!" with savings from his yet to be ratified trade deal with Mexico and Canada. Trump has long promised that Mexico will pay for the entirety of the wall in direct cash payments, but is now trying to shift away from that promise and instead declare that the funding will come from a trade deal that hasn't even been ratified by Congress.
