Incoming “acting” White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney admitted ABC’s “This Week” that Mexico will not be paying for the border wall, a promise that President Donald Trump has made for three years.
Mulvaney claimed that Mexico would “participate” in border security,” but was reminded by host Jonathan Karl that Mexico is not paying for the wall.
Mulvaney then openly contradicted Trump:
Technically, you and I both know that it cannot work exactly like that… The Department of Homeland Security can’t actually spend money from Mexico. We have to get it from the U.S. Treasury.
