Trump suggests a 20 percent tariff on goods from Mexico to pay for his wall
U.S. President Donald Trump has suggested that a 20 percent import tax could be used to pay for the wall he intends to build on the U.S. border with Mexico. However, there is already some confusion about whether the tariffs will ever be imposed.

|Earlier, Trump had said that if Mexico was not going to pay for the wall, there was no use of the two presidents meeting next week as scheduled. Nieto announced he would not go in a tweet. Later Trump said that the two had mutually agreed to call off the meeting. Trump appears determined to find some way of making Mexico pay and the twenty percent tariff on goods imported into the U.S. from Mexico would be one way.|
