From the Washington Post:

White House threatens Mexico with tax to pay for wall

  • Spokesman Sean Spicer said President Trump intends to pay for the wall by imposing a 20 percent tax on imports from Mexico as part of an overall tax reform plan, though he later appeared to backtrack, saying it was “one idea” for funding a border wall.
  • The comment came hours after the Mexican president canceled his visit to Washington because of growing tensions with Trump over the border wall.
