DONALD Trump has warned Mexico it will “directly or indirectly” pay for the controversial wall along the border with the USA.

Donald Trump indicated his neighbours will have to stump up for the new border security – although he conceded it may pay “indirectly” in the form of a new trade agreement.

This agreement would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which Mr Trump today described as a “bad joke”.

He said America currently suffered a huge trade deficit to Mexico and a new deal would provide Washington with billions of dollars, which could then fund the wall.

And he also hit out at critics who argued he was already scaling-back the wall itself, claiming some parts would need to be see-through or porous to protect wildlife.

He tweeted today: “The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it.

“Parts will be, of necessity, see through and it was never intended to be built in areas where there is natural protection such as mountains, wastelands or tough rivers or water.

“The Wall will be paid for, directly or indirectly, or through longer term reimbursement, by Mexico, which has a ridiculous $71 billion dollar trade surplus with the US.

“The $20 billion dollar Wall is ‘peanuts’ compared to what Mexico makes from the US.

“NAFTA is a bad joke!”

He later moved on to the importance of the wall, claiming it was necessary to protect America.
