President Trump doubled down Friday morning on his reasoning that Mexico will truly be paying for the border wall.

The president has been mocked by Democrats repeatedly for claiming Mexico would pay for the wall, and mocked him again Thursday when he stated that he never promised Mexico would actually write a check.

However, Trump repeated again his reasoning that the savings America will reap with his new trade deal with Mexico would, in fact, pay for the wall.  He tweeted Friday:

I often said during rallies, with little variation, that “Mexico will pay for the Wall.” We have just signed a great new Trade Deal with Mexico. It is Billions of Dollars a year better than the very bad NAFTA deal which it replaces. The difference pays for Wall many times over!
