Do the math, the currency exchange rate between 1 United States Dollar equals 19.49 Mexican Pesos. How many pesos are 8 Billion Dollars?
Trump promised over and over again that Mexico would pay for his wall, so why does he now want American taxpayers to pay? And since we do not even know if @Realdonaldtrump pays any taxes, why should #USA be forced to pay?
It’s unclear how much money the president will seek to build his wall with Mexico. The request is coming on top of the $8.1 billion Trump already has access to, which includes some $3.6 billion he’s trying to shift from military accounts after declaring a national emergency.
POTUS invoked the emergency declaration last month after Congress denied his request for $5.7 billion. Instead, Congress approved nearly $1.4 billion for the border barriers, far less than he wanted.
The Mexico–United States barrier is a series of walls and fences along the border aimed at preventing illegal crossings.
