Trump Just Found A Way To Make Mexico ‘Pay For The Wall’


President Donald Trump may have found a way to fulfill one of his more ambitious campaign promises: making Mexico pay for the wall.

President Donald Trump doubled down today on his threat to slap a 5% tariff on Mexican imports unless America’s southern neighbor cracks down on Central American migrants trying to cross the U.S. border.

Trump is a political genius.

President Donald Trump may have found a way to fulfill one of the more ambitious — and controversial — pledges from his 2016 campaign: making Mexico pay for the wall.

On Thursday, hours after Trump tweeted that the U.S. Border Patrol had apprehended a record number of illegal migrants, the president announced that he would impose a 5% tariff on all imports from Mexico, increasing over time, until the Mexican government stopped the migrant flow from Central America.

Technically, a tariff is a tax paid by Americans to the U.S. government. But there will be a cost to Mexican firms, to Mexican workers, and to the Mexican government. In that sense, Mexico will be “paying for the wall” — or, rather, paying a price for the absence of a wall. To stop, Mexico will have to spend money on immigration enforcement. More

A more direct impact on Mexico’s revenue would be to also impose a “tariff” on all the money transfers that illegal immigrants send to Mexico. Those funds could also be directed to our wall construction.

Boycott everything made or grown in Mexico!
