Really some crazy ideas coming out now.

Donald Trump strongly suggests he’s willing to go to war with Mexico to finance his “big, beautiful wall” - Salon.com

Trump replied, again, with non-answers. “I’m sorry to press on this,” Woodward said, “but how would you grab [Mexico’s] money? If they say ‘No,’ would you be willing to go to war to pay for this wall?”

Trump told Woodward to “trust [him], when I rejuvenate our military, Mexico won’t be ‘playing’ war with us — that I can tell you.”

What he really means by "Mexico will pay for the wall" is really a shell game where he reduces the 54B deficit to an amount that would more than offset the cost of building the wall.

So in effect they will have paid for the wall without actually writing a check explicitly for the wall.

I think this is his "flexibility" plan: he had indicated during the last debate that the wall might be 45 feet instead of 50 feet . . . he needs to maintain flexibility to negotiate . . . . so it is really not inconceivable that the wall would be 15 feet or even 10 feet. Mr. Trump is very malleable, I mean, flexible.

Mexico might pay for the wall after hard negotiations . . . . all 5 feet of it.

Trump, being the narcissistic, megalomaniac he is would go to war with France the prime minister made fun of his hair. He's as crazy and unhinged as they come.

Because they cannot find anything on Trump to get his supporters to turn away from him. What, probably 50 anti-Trump stupid questions a day now. It will only get worse as Trump gains more delegates.

And, a "war"? Surely no one was silly enough to believe we would proclaim war on Mexico if they said they wouldn't pay for the Wall. Get the tanks all moving south, soldiers deployed........

Because he will surely use a plethora of Executive Orders to do whatever he darn pleases. . . . and his supporters will conveniently forget their objections to the use of Executive Orders because . . . . different.

He won't need to they are getting prepared to support the wall and pay for it too. He is ready to negotiate!!! ALL WE HAD TO DO WAS ASK !!!

Peña Nieto stressed that his administration will seek to reach agreement and maintain a respectful relationship with whoever wins the U.S. presidency.
