What’s one of the first things that President-elect Donald Trump said he’d do if elected?

“BUILD THE WALL!” Yes, yes, yes, we’ve heard all the different variations of this. However, he’s always vowed that Mexico “would pay for the wall, they just don’t know it yet.” Now, in typical Trump form, he’s going back on his word.
CNN reports that Trump and his team is asking Congress to make taxpayers fork over roughly $10 billion dollars to build the barrier. That means we’re going to pay for a structure that a majority of U.S. citizens don’t want.
Once good ol’ Trump saw the headlines (from the news outlet he doesn’t watch, apparently), he took to Twitter (naturally) to disclose the truth… *cough, cough.*
The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!

Ohhhh, so first we’ll pay for the wall, and when it’s finished, then Mexico will send a check over for $10 billion. That makes sense. It’s some sort of layaway plan. Right.
So who’s really going to pay for this? This is starting to sound like the most awkward date ever.
