Trump: NAFTA revisions could pay for border wall

President Trump on Friday said a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) could yield the money to pay for his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Trump said that a “good deal” in NAFTA negotiations could effectively return enough money to the U.S. to pay for the border wall.

That means Mexico will essentially have paid for the wall, he said.

“They can pay for it indirectly through NAFTA,” Trump told the Journal. “We make a good deal on NAFTA, and, say, I’m going to take a small percentage of that money and it’s going toward the wall. Guess what? Mexico’s paying.”

Since the earliest days of his presidential campaign, Trump insisted he would build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico as a way to stymie the flow of immigrants — and that Mexico would pay for the project.
