WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On January 25, Trump issued an executive order aimed at speeding up the construction of the wall along the US-Mexico border, delivering on his signature campaign pledge.
"The wall is getting designed right now," Trump stated at Major Cities Police Chiefs Association conference. "We will have a wall and it will be a great wall."
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly stated Mexico would pay for the border wall.
The Mexican government has said it would not pay for the border wall.
