    He actually proposed how Mexico would pay for the wall...

    In an April 2016 memo, Trump’s campaign outlined the steps he could take to get Mexico to pay for the wall.

    "It's an easy decision for Mexico: make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year," the memo said.

    Trump proposed measures to compel Mexico to pay for the wall, such as cutting off remittances sent from undocumented Mexicans in the U.S. via wire transfers.

    Then, the memo says, if and when the Mexican government protested, they would be told to pay a lump sum "to the United States to pay for the wall, the Trump Administration will not promulgate the final rule, and the regulation will not go into effect." The plan lists a few other methods if that didn’t work, like the trade deficit, canceling Mexican visas or increasing visa fees. (Experts have told us there isn’t a connection between the U.S.-Mexico trade deficit and finding money for a wall.)

    The lane of rationality.

    You’re probably not too familiar with it.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    This Eastern Mystic learned long ago that rationality is not what the dying West cracks it up to be.

    Well here is the truth...

    Our ruling

    Trump said, "When I say Mexico is going to pay for the wall, that's what I said. Mexico is going to pay. I didn't say they're going to write me a check for $20 billion or $10 billion."

    Trump’s campaign called a one-time payment of $5 billion-$10 billion "an easy decision for Mexico." The country’s other option would be to lose billions more in impounded remittances from immigrants working in the United States and increased fees on U.S. temporary visas and border crossing cards.

    Trump as president has thrown out a number of other ways for Mexico to pay for the wall. Now he says it will be "indirect" through the trade deal (though that’s unsupported).

    But his rewrite of a famous campaign pitch doesn’t clear. We rate this statement False.

    Now if you don't believe the truth is the truth...if you can just spin the truth...then it stops being the truth. The truth becomes whatever you want it to be.

    I dont subcontract out my thinking to politifact or to anyone else, and I dont recommend that you do either.
