Trump's plan to make Mexico "pay for the wall" largely involved extortion attempts that he hoped would lead to Mexico writing a check n.pr/2Cg8dt9 (From 2016)
Trump also promised the wall would be made of concrete, not steel beams bit.ly/2CbVNST
If you don't like the link to NPR, consider the extortion plan is still on his own website: bit.ly/2Ccn6fW
And finally, Trump said today that he never said Mexico would pay directly for a border wall. Except he did, with a little bit of wiggle room.
So when Trump said this morning that he "never meant Mexico would write a check," he's deliberately misleading because his earlier statements were evasive and obfuscated. Which he always intended to do.
