The Washington Post has obtained transcripts of the phone calls between the President and leaders of Mexico and Australia, the transcripts are said to confirm his call with the Australian President didn't go well and show Trump used the prospect of building a wall and Mexico paying for it as a political tool to rally the faithful.
So how does the Washington Post get transcripts of 3 presidents over secured lines?

The entire wall costs about 20 billion, a drop in the bucket compared to the annual budget. It's not even like 0.001% of the annual budget. Mexico will pay nothing, and the wall will stop Mexicans coming in.

You're right I'm not shocked anymore and don't take any headlines especially from the wallstreet journal seriously.
I gave up trying to weed out the lies and just let both parties celebrate their comfirmation bias.
This story means nothing period. Trump supporters don't care as long as the wall is built. Omg trump used a political issue to get elected I'm so surprised
Forked tongues are hallmarks of salvation...since this is hell afterall.

You went full WaPo, you never go full WaPo.
The quote shows once again Trump speaks with fork tongue.
Trump even acknowledges that the wall is “the least important thing we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important.”
On topic: Is the president and his administration's stance on illegal immigration bearing fruit do you think?
Probably , the figures will be good to bolster support with the faithful.
Weak leaders always need an enemy.
Better choose the liars who know how to get results.

How long before someone chimes in "All part of the plan" then when asked "What plan"? the supporter finds another topic to address. I don't know what irritates Me more, the way it comes across as if they are privy to any 'plan' OR That Trump would have a plan.
To this "common passerby" it appears that Herr Drumpf flies w/nary a net or 'plan'..
It would take quite a yarn to convince Me hiring/firing that LOUD MOUTH is part; parcel of any plan..
A politician will lie to get erected; Trump was a LIAR before becoming a politician.. Now He just doesn't give 2 squirts..

Fake news, OP.
There is nothing in the transcript to show that Trump admitted he never intended to get Mexico to pay for the wall.

The taxpayers would be more than happy to pay for something meaningful for once... those of us who actually go to work.

You say that but Trump keeps failing at his "deal making". Though he keeps assuring us he is a top rate deal maker.
Kinda like watching sausage being made.
Wait for the results.
