Oh, how they mocked Donald Trump when he said that Mexico would pay for his wall. Well, they may not be laughing anymore.
Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to renegotiate America’s trade deals with foreign nations. Mexico, in particular, was targeted as a drain on America’s manufacturing industry.
