Trump memo explains how Mexico will pay for border wall

Trump Reveals Plans to Pay for Border Wall

Donald Trump, the 2016 Republican front-runner, revealed in a memo obtained by The Washington Post how he would force the Mexican government to pay for the proposed 1,000-mile border wall he's mentioned so often on the campaign trail.


A two-page document the newspaper posted online states that if the GOP candidate were to win the presidency he would change a rule under the USA Patriot Act antiterrorism law to cut off a portion of the funds sent to Mexico through money transfers -- commonly known as remittances -- according to The Post.

As the presidential race heats up, this memo gives a glimpse into the GOP candidate's vision of what would "Make America Great Again" -- and offers specifics on Trump's political policies as he heads into a difficult battle against Sen. Ted Cruz in Tuesday's Wisconsin primary.
