Donald Trump’s White House just revealed their new plans to make Mexico pay for the Wall!

He is now looking to place a 20% tariff on ALL Mexican Imports.

According to White House Spokesman Sean Spicer,

“If you tax that $50 billion at 20 percent of imports — which is by the way a practice that 160 other countries do — right now our country’s policy is to tax exports and let imports flow freely in, which is ridiculous. By doing it that way, we can do $10 billion a year and easily pay for the wall just through that mechanism alone. That’s really going to provide the funding.”

This comes just hours after the President of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto released this video announcing that he was CANCELING his meeting to renegotiate NAFTA with President Trump.

Oh man, this is such a HUGE mistake for Mexico. Don’t they realize that, according to the US State Department, we currently make up around 80% of their exports?!

Fine then, I say we just dump Mexico out of NAFTA or trash it all together, put that 20% tariff on, and see how they act then. America should ALWAYS have a strong position in negotiations.

I love Mexico and I love the Mexican people, but the Government of Mexico is run by a bunch of friends of the world’s most DANGEROUS drug criminals so I have ZERO respect for them.

I wonder if the wall just got 10 feet higher?

  1. Won't that just drive up the prices that we get from Mexico which means us Americans would in fact paying for the wall? Also what if this tariff causes businesses in Mexico to shut down won't those Mexican workers be more likely to try to come here illegally cause I doubt a wall would keep anyone out that is determined to get here.

  2. Also tax all the money that is earned in this
    Country, untaxed, and sent to Mexico by
    Way of Western Union! See it everyday at
    Walmart!!

  3. Cancel ALL foreign aid to Mexico and use the money to hire and equip enough Border Patrol officers to line the length of the border. Maybe we wouldn't need a wall.

  4. As long as it is a 20 percent export tax, paid the Mexican exporter to the US Govt and not a 20 percent import tax added to the selling price in the US….this is a great idea!

  5. I believe our President Trump is the greatest president ever!!! He doesn't sweat the small stuff. He gets the work done. He keeps his promises to the American people. Mexico Will pay for the wall…. one way or another…Trump doesn't play games ……I just love ❤️ that man!!! God Bless Our President!!!

  6. DJT was 100 percent correct when he said the illegal aliens ar bringing crime and drugs when they cross the border. That is a fact because the coyotes charge $5000 dollars to guide you across the border. Nobody pays that, so they put 30 kilos of drugs on there backs to pay the fee. I.e. Crime and drugs. That certainly justifies building a wall.

  7. My thoughts on the 20% tax is that it will be add on to the cost of the product. That means the consumer, (we the people) will be paying for the wall.

  8. It is simple, If you are caught living in Mexico with out the proper permissions, "illegal" all of your property and money is seized, you are then deported with what clothes you have on your back… The government takes everything… Let's just pay for the wall with what ever the illegal's have and send them back with nothing.

  9. Mexico won't be paying for the wall with a 20% tariff. We the American people will from the higher prices in the stores on Mexican Imports. Is everybody forgot how this system works in the United States?

    • If your worried about paying higher prices for things imported from Mexico then do your homework and just don't buy it from Mexico.People you can't have it both ways. Use your heads and realize President Trump is trying to help America and a lot of you keep doubting every single thing that he say's and does. Donald J Trump is not a stupid man and he has America's best interests at heart. Give the man a chance we had to give Obama 8 years of chances.

    • Yes. Everyone thinks Mexican products will come in with an extra 20% cost attached to it but Mexico isn't smart enough to make us pay for it by raising the price of the product?

  10. Not sure that is the ONLY way we should go. I would also love to see a tax on all moneys transferred to Mexico from the USA…money "sent home"…wouldn't affect us, but would really affect Mexico.
