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.
