Of course, his supporters won't care. As long as he's still not Hillary, he's good. The 'poorly educated' are willing throw all American traditions/norms/practices out the window as long as they never have to admit they were tricked by an orange con-man.

Trump, and his kids, are Trash !

Worst. 'president'. EVER!

Correct.
At no point does he say or even intimate that he agrees that Mexico are not paying for the wall.
This thread is a good example of fakery, using a headline that doesn't match the facts.

No... he's just begging the Mexican President to stop saying they won't pay for it because he knows they wont and wants to save face.

Yet still you eat it up. Gullible to the end.

Actually he never said they are no paying for it. He just said don't talk about not paying for it. I know leftists like to revise history but people can read. Also no one cares where the money is coming from and the wall is just a plus. The fact that he killed off Obama's globalists redistributing of wealth international treaty like TPP and Paris Agreement is enough for Trump supporters to vote for him again. It proves he is not a traitor like the Globalists Democrat Party.

For those that don't leave their couch, there is a wall. Lot's of wall. Watch the doc "The Fence" to learn more. As far as what Trump says, or how he does it, who gives a rat's tail. Everyone voted for building it, even beloved Obama and Hillary. Let's just get it fixed where it needs it. I don't care as much about the people coming here for better life as I do the heroin and meth traffic.

For those that think building (securing) the rest (weak parts) of the border wall/fence is a bad idea, start leaving your doors, windows and garage open 24/7 and get back to me with the results.

No...but he very clearly "says" and "intimates" that the wall and who pays for is "the least important" topic apart from "Politics" and "Psychologically"..

And chooses to try to convince the President of Mexico to stop SAYING he wont pay for it..

Public perceptions and politics is the lens Trump views the Wall issue through.

He readily admits it is unimportant apart from that in the call.

Yep. Trump knows his followers. The idea that Mexico was ever going to pay for the wall was preposterous from the beginning, but lots of Trumpsters believed it, as Trump knew they would. But when you sell crap to people, you obviously don't have to care about backing it up. It's all about the "illusion" of backing it up, especially when your followers will forgive you for everything, including looking them dead in the eye and lying to them.

We (collectively: media, political campaigns, etc.) have spent more TALKING about the "wall" than it would have cost to build the wall.

Aside from WaPo presenting the illegally-obtained transcripts out of context, I don't really care how the wall or enhanced border defense is paid for.

Do you seriously think people voted for Trump thinking "The Don is gonna stick it to Mexico!" ?

No, the immigration-related reason that people voted for Trump is because he took the issue of illegal aliens seriously and had plans to slow it down and start deporting the problem.

So, moving on....

Building the wall was signed by Bush "W". And it was shut down by Homeland Security for cost.

It's not Trump's wall - - never was.

Until a new effective plan is approved - - it's not going to happen.

Here is the thing

Nobody voted for Trump because of Mexico paying for a wall, absolutely nobody, except maybe a few low IQ people that were duped into voting for Trump by there carer

There frustration was aimed at illegals and criminals gangs from Mexico, it was a metaphor

It was more of a campaign slogan, a rally cry to unite over, there were dozens of reason it was a popular policy and worked, but none of them, absolutely none of them was because Mexico was going to pay, that was simply the butt of the joke

It never really mattered WHO paid for it, people just wanted it, because of all the problems which come from illegal immigration

Illegal immigration costs the US taxpayers 113 billion per year

The wall? A one off 10/20 billion with a few million per year maintenance

The new version of the wall is to be possibly to double as a solar farm

So in actual fact... Going with that, the wall will actually be making money and covering its own costs

This isn't even news worthy, in fact it just highlights how little the liberals have left, complete desperation, Infant like digs and taunting

Liberals... NOBODY CARES

I know that must hurt, and further frustrate you

But again... nobody cares, and nobody cares because

1 nobody voted for trump to have Mexico pay for the wall

2 ICE is doing a great job now it hasn't got it arms tied up by the globalists trying to change political demographics via mass uncontrolled immigration

3 Illegals coming over the boarders is down, hugely

4 The wall will pay for itself

5 Trump is still dismantling the globalist liberal agenda

6 The liberals are still desperate defeated and as pathetic as ever

Gosh I'd hate to be a Trump supporter right now. All those excuses and mental gymnastics must really be doing people in the head. You get tired eventually. There's only so many times you can defend this guy.

The biggest story--when this nightmare of the Trump presidency is over-- and a political autopsy is done will be the followers of Trump and how much they tolerated the vile acts of Trump and being used. mocked, and made fools of...


The country bumpkins in West Virginia and other places, drunk off corn liquor half the time who could hardly even read, may have an excuse for being duped, but what is the excuse of the supposed intelligent people who support(ed) Trump?


That will be the interesting question answered by history, if we survive this presidency.

It's hard to find Nixon supporters these days, but there were many roaming around years after his scandals ended. It'll be the same way with Trump.

Our children's generation will look back on the Trump years and characterize them all with a catchphrase something like "I am not a crook."

What will Trump's catch phrase be?
