At a GOP debate focused on financial issues, Donald Trump took the opportunity to wax poetic about his favorite subject (after his own wealth): his plan for a Mexico-U.S. border wall.
As part of a question aimed at Trump, one of the debate moderators asked, “Is this a comic book version of a presidential campaign?” to which Trump responded in the negative. After briefly discussing his tax plan, he pivoted to The Wall. “They built the Great Wall of China. That’s 13,000 miles. Here we actually need 1,000, because we have natural barriers….We can do a wall. We’re gonna have a big fat beautiful door right in the middle of the wall. We’re gonna have people come in, but they’re coming in legally. And Mexico’s going to pay for the wall.”
How will he get Mexico to pay for the wall?
“A politician…cannot get them to pay. I can.”
Well OK then.
