US President-elect Donald Trump will begin to build a wall on the border with Mexico even before reaching the agreement with neighboring authorities regarding compensation for barrier costs on this construction. The president said in an interview to Fox News.
"We will build a wall, Mexico will reimburse us everything,” says the future US leader. He explained that the construction of the barrier will start before the two countries agree. "To a greater or lesser extent Mexico will pay for it, and everyone will be happy," Trump said.
Earlier this month, according to CNN, after long discussions at Trump’s headquarters it was decided to finance the project from the US budget.
Let us remind the construction of the border wall at the expense of Mexico was one of the points of Trump's election campaign, Trump. In his opinion, such a barrier would prevent illegal migration to the United States.
Additionally, US President-elect announced his intention to treat all international partners of the USA equally. Speaking on the subject that he raised earlier in the interview with The Times of London newspaper and the German edition of Bild, where he said that still trusts the Russian President Putin and German Chancellor Merkel, Trump said: "Everything I said is that I give everyone the same opportunities at the beginning. I think everyone starts on equal terms."
It is noteworthy that inauguration of Donald Trump will be held on Friday, January 20, 2017.
