    I will be impressed if Trump gets them to pay for it. But i dont see how at this time.

    Election campaign promises are a dime a dozen.  However I wouldn't join the bandwagon of disbelief just yet.  There's a consideration to be made here and that is that Mexico depends HUGELY upon the United States...it wouldn't be very hard to: 1. Cut the amount of resources and support we give to Mexico until the financial value of the wall is made up.  2. Increase the taxes on all trade with Mexico from the U.S. until the difference is achieved.  3.  Cut off all trade and slap a trade embargo on Mexico until they pay for the wall.

    Either way, if we really wanted mexico to pay for the wall...it wouldn't be hard.  Just like if we wanted something from China...we could halt Walmart's business with them and starve their entire country in a week.

    Wow, that's a great point by @Vaulk

    I agree with the methods he listed...
    Especially cutting funding towards Mexico.
    another great method is a temporary ban on Mexican trade which I believe Trump may be open too.

    Given Trump's proposal of import tax, I can also now see how Mexico can indirectly pay for the wall.

    Yes, @agsr, made an outstanding point. Import tax could enable this.
