How Trump plans to build, and pay for, a wall along U.S.-Mexico border

The boldest promise of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign was also one of his first.

“I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively,” Trump said, announcing his candidacy on June 16, 2015. “I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall.”

The big question, now that Trump is the Republican nominee, is how he would do it if elected president.  At the Democratic National Convention, Sen. Elizabeth Warren derided the wall promise, saying it’s never going to happen.
