The White House called the cost of the wall on the border with Mexico

21
Building a wall on the border with Mexico will cost the US budget about $ 20 billion, while Donald Trump does not give up hope to make Mexico pay for this construction, reports RIA News Statement by the White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.




During the interview, Fox News asked Kelly how much the barrier would cost.

About 20 billion dollars,
replied the official.

The president’s views on the construction of the wall “continue to evolve,” he noted.

Donald Trump is currently exploring whether Mexico can pay for construction “through NAFTA or paying visas,” Kelly added.

The agency recalls that the United States, Canada and Mexico are negotiating on updating the "North American Free Trade Area" (NAFTA), and the partners of the Americans fear that the United States will withdraw from the agreement before the completion of the negotiations.

The construction of the fence on the border with Mexico at the expense of the Mexicans themselves and the revision of NAFTA were one of the key campaign promises of Donald Trump.

    In the states and so on of all people, there’s a “rampart” so that the wall will not save them. Moreover, they want to build it for free, at the expense of Mexico.

    US contractability is doubtful even among reinforced concrete allies.
    moreover, American partners fear that the United States will withdraw from the agreement before the completion of negotiations.
    Appetites are growing
    The construction of the wall on the border with Mexico will cost the US budget about $ 20 billion
    I remember Trump before the election, he estimated much cheaper, and he, as a person associated with the construction, could probably estimate without a hitch

    Let Ameri.kosa take Yaytsenyukha as a wall construction consultant, and the result will suit everyone. There will be no money, no wall, but Trump will fulfill his campaign promise to build a wall between mattress and Mexico.

          It’s time for Senya to write off the print run for a long time, but someone needs him more alive than in a stew. And this is understandable: it helps to master the budget well. lol

                  So it seems to me like this: he also needs to bring up successors, and such under any government will come in handy.

      20 billion is a penny.

      Apple has announced that it will pay 38 billions of dollars in US taxes, which will allow it to return to the country the profits accumulated abroad as part of the tax reform approved by US President Donald Trump.

      Apple also announced its intention to create 20.000 new jobs on the company's existing campus and open a new campus, as well as invest 30 of billions of dollars in the United States.


      And by the way, Mexico and no one will ask whether she agrees or not. US investment in the Mexican economy is much more than $ 20 billion. Mexico will not want to lose investment.

    Does the cost of concrete for flooding the whole of Mexico also include this? Or pouring tomahawks at a separate tariff! ??

    As the unforgettable Zadornov said about the Americans: "Well, stupid!"
    Why build a wall ?! It would be better to dig a canal, an understudy of Panama. Here you can cut down the barrier and dough.
