Donald Trump is talking about "the wall" again.  The New York Times reports that, as congressional Republicans yesterday discussed quickly moving ahead with plans for a southern border wall using money included in this year’s spending bills, President-elect Donald J. Trump insisted that Mexico would ultimately pay for its construction.  His new idea is that we will build a wall and Mexico will reimburse us.  The details of the reimbursement process are murky, at best.
