Who’s paying for the wall? Trump does not back down from reporter while sitting next to Mexican president

A reporter decided it would be a good idea to put President Donald Trump on the spot as he met with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto by asking him if he still wanted our southern neighbor to pay for the wall.

But if they thought he’d back off of his long-held stance, they were incorrect.

It was the first meeting between the two North American presidents since they met during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, when President Trump insisted that Mexico would pay for a Southern border wall as a major part of his platform. A subsequent meeting between the two leader was cancelled when Nieto reportedly grew frustrated over talk of having to pay for the wall.

“We’re negotiating NAFTA and some other things with Mexico and we’ll see how it all turns out, but I think that we’ve made very good progress,” President Trump told reporters at the G20 summit.

But as the two men were ending the press conference a reporter asked President Trump asking if he still intended to have Mexico pay for the proposed wall, designed to keep illegal aliens out of the United States.

“Mr. President do you still want Mexico to pay for the wall,” the reporter shouted.

“Absolutely,” he replied.

It was welcome news to his supporters.
