Fox Correspondent Calls Out Trump For Failing To Get Mexico To Pay For Border Wall

Shelby Talcott on September 19, 2019

Fox correspondent Ed Henry called out President Donald Trump Thursday morning for failing to fulfill his “promise” that Mexico would pay for the border wall.

Henry interviewed Trump at the U.S.-Mexico border and called out “Fox & Friends” co-host Ainsley Earhardt after she made an excuse Thursday for Trump not following through with his promise. Trump assured Americans that Mexico would pay for the proposed border wall separating the U.S. from Mexico throughout his campaign for president.

“But we’ve got to be clear, that that’s something that he has not fulfilled the promise on, in fact, getting Mexico to pay it,” Henry said. “Now he is trying to transfer taxpayer funds here in America.”

The comment came after Earhardt said that Trump has considered implementing tariffs on Mexico to pay for the wall. She added the president hasn’t gone through with this because Mexico is “helping us out” on certain issues.

“So that is going to be an issue between now and the election. Can he follow through on that part of the campaign promise?” Henry continued. He also noted the Trump administration “hasn’t completed” the border wall, but that progress is being made.

“It is not just a political issue,” Henry said. “It is working. It is preventing illegal immigrants from getting into America.”

  • But the Democrats rely on a permanent supply if ignorant people to vote them into office each election cycle. What are they going to do if the supply is cut off, and they have to rely on passing good policies to get elected? Mass illegal immigration is their means of survival.

  • Isn't Mexico helping us in detaining, housing etc. the invaders inside their border? I wonder how much they are paying for it. I am sure they indirectly paying for the American Wall

  • He's actually doing that as well. Lots of ways to get that money besides cash. Just keeping out the leeches will be huge. Imagine being able to go into your local hospital after 5 p.m. and not seeing what looks like Tijuana standing before you.

  • Keeping drugs and leeches out of our country in the future will more than pay for the wall. There are other ways to collect besides a cash payment. If we don't have to take care of Mexico's unwanted Indian population anymore, that is money in the bank for us.

  • Many ways to "pay" for the wall--increased troops to border, decrease border crossings, asylum seekers stay in mex. Trade deals, factories back to US. It's an ongoing process. Stay the course, stop gripping, and support OUR President.
