Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told former Mexican President Vicente Fox, who apologized to Trump for previous remarks he had made and invited Trump to Mexico, “Get your money ready because you’re going to pay for the wall” on Wednesday’s “O’Reilly Factor” on the Fox News Channel.
Trump said, in response to a question on whether he had a message for Fox, [relevant remarks begin around 3:40] “Get your money ready because you’re going to pay for the wall.”
Trump added that he wasn’t backing off his plan to make Mexico pay for a border wall, and “we lose a fortune with mexico, trade deficit $58 billion a year. The wall’s going to cost 10. believe me, they’ll be able to afford it, and we’re going to end up having a very good relationship with mexico. But right now, sadly, like everybody else, they’re taking advantage of our country on trade, and at the border. So, we’ll get it straightened out.”
