Donald Trump repeated his incorrect assertion that Mexico will pay for the wall along the southern border indirectly through money earned from his yet to be ratified trade deal with Mexico. To be clear, the trade deal, even if it is ratified by Congress, will not pay for the border wall no matter how much Trump insists otherwise.

Quote | The trade deal Donald discussed will not pay for the wall nor has it been ratified.

"The wall will also be paid for indirectly by the great new trade deal we have made with Mexico."
