President Donald Trump said in a recent interview with CBS News that Mexico will “be very happy to pay” for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“Face the Nation” moderator John Dickerson interviewed Mr. Trump behind the scenes of his rally last Saturday in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. As the president was preparing to walk onstage, chants of “Build that wall!” echoed from the audience in the rally hall.
“Can you hear that, John?” The president asked. “Believe me, that’s what they want.”
“Do you think they care about how it’s paid for?” Dickerson asked.
“Oh, Mexico is going to pay,” the president replied.
Dickerson followed up, “A hundred percent – the whole thing?”
