White House Threatens ‘20% Tax On Mexican Imports’ to Pay for Border Wall

Donald Trump understands something that most politicians just don’t get, you negotiate from a position of strength, not weakness.  

Donald Trump’s only concern is the American people and making this country great again which is why he takes tough stances on issues.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto cowered today when Trump announced that if he won’t pay for the wall that it would be best that he didn’t come to visit him in the U.S.
Trump knew this would happen which is why the White House is now saying that a nice little 20% tax on Mexican imports will pay for the wall.
 
From Fox News:

President Trump’s plan to make Mexico pay for the wall he intends to build on the southern border may have taken shape Thursday, when his spokesman suggested imposing a 20-percent import tax on Mexican goods.
“When you look at the plan that’s taking shape now, using comprehensive tax reform as a means to tax imports from countries that we have a trade deficit from, like Mexico,” Spicer said.
“If you tax that $50 billion at 20 percent of imports – which is by the way a practice that 160 other countries do – right now our country’s policy is to tax exports and let imports flow freely in, which is ridiculous,” he said. “By doing it that we can do $10 billion a year and easily pay for the wall just through that mechanism alone. That’s really going to provide the funding.”
Let’s be clear: Mexico will pay for the wall despite what their leaders say.
To use the vernacular of Former President of Mexico, Vicente Fox: Mexico Absolutely Will Pay For That F**KING Wall!
