President-elect Donald Trump’s biggest promise while on the campaign trail was to build a wall stretching across the U.S.-Mexico border. He also made the promise of “having Mexico pay for it.”


On Thursday, House Republicans revealed a way for the wall to be built. Friday morning, Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway insisted her boss’s promise “hasn’t changed.”

Speaking on “FOX & Friends,” Conway said that “Congress is examining ways to have the wall paid for through their auspices.” She said Trump will have the Mexican government “pay it back.”

Former Mexican President Vincente Fox once stated that both he and his country will “not pay for that f***ing wall.”

Fox doubled down on his stance on Thursday:

“Trump may ask whoever he wants, but still neither myself nor Mexico are going to pay for his racist monument,” he promised. “Another promise he can’t keep.”
