Trump asks Congress to pay for the Border Wall to be Reimbursed by Mexico Later

CNN was gloating last night that this is a broken promise, but is it? Watch this short clip from late October, where Trump talks about Mexico “reimbursing” the U.S. for the cost of the wall.
Congress fronts the money, then Mexico pays us back. That was his position this morning, too:
Did people think that he and Pena-Nieto were going to hold some ceremony in advance where Mexico presents Trump with one of those big sweepstakes checks? Trump ally Chris Collins imagined payment being made this way, which also seems not so likely:
New York Rep. Chris Collins said Friday that American taxpayers would front the cost for the wall but that he was confident Trump could negotiate getting the money back from Mexico.
“When you understand that Mexico’s economy is dependent upon US consumers, Donald Trump has all the cards he needs to play,” Collins, congressional liaison for the Trump transition team, told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on “New Day.” “On the trade negotiation side, I don’t think it’s that difficult for Donald Trump to convince Mexico that it’s in their best interest to reimburse us for building the wall.”

Just seize a million Mexican nationals (illegal aliens) and make them work for free for 7 years. Then a ticket back home.
