Trump has long maintained that he will "build a wall" and Mexico will pay for it—which has become a rallying cry for millions of his supporters.

Skeptics of Trump's wall proposal include the current President of the United States.
#NobodyWillPay
Some folks aren't even sure if constructing a wall along the border is actually possible.
#MexicoWillPay
But Trump has dismissed any arguments about the feasibility of building 1,989 miles of border fencing.
#NobodyWillPay
And will Mexico even pay for the wall? Former Mexican president Vicente Fox responded by dropping the F-bomb.
#MexicoWillPay
When pushed, Trump responded to Fox's comments by saying "The wall just got 10 feet higher."
#MexicoWillPay
Trump says he would use trade tariffs and the Patriot Act to block wire transfers by citizens to Mexico unless the neighboring country agrees to pay for the wall.
#NobodyWillPay
But some experts think Trump's interpretation of the Patriot Act won't hold up in court and would be a gross overreach of executive powers.
#MexicoWillPay
Now, Trump is scheduled to meet with Mexico's current president—and it's likely the border wall will come up.
#NobodyWillPay
But it's unlikely Trump will find a buyer for his "fabulous" wall.
