"I have often said:" In whatever way or whatever, Mexico is going to pay for the wall ", tweeted Trump." This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very expensive and anti-US NAFTA deal, that only by the money we save, MEXICO PAYS FOR THE WALL! "

Trump threatened this week to partially disable the government unless he gets the $ 5 billion he wants for the boundary wall.

That the US Army would build remaining parts of the wall if Democrats "do not give us votes to secure our country."

One of Trump's most popular presidential campaign platforms called on Mexico to pay for its proposed wall on the southern border, which Mexico refused to do. Now House GOP is considering a short-term, stop-gap financing contribution that would include the $ 5 billion in border wall financing demanded by Trump.

Trump's tweet on Thursday also came when the president presented Congress to approve his new trade agreement, USMCA, which would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). The president has threatened to demolish NAFTA to increase the pressure on the incoming Democratic House.

Without replacement of NAFTA would probably be a costly undertaking, experts say, plunging the stock markets.

Several Democrats have expressed concern about USMCA, indicating that they will be fighting in the 116th Congress. It could take months to push the deal with the Democrats who take the majority of the House.
