Donald Trump Seeks 20% Tax on Mexican Imports to Pay for Border Wall
The White House says President Donald Trump will pay for the U.S. - Mexico border wall by imposing a 20% tax on Mexican imports.
Tribune News Services reports White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer says it will be part of a comprehensive tax reform package.
CNN reports Spicer says taxing imports would generate $10 billion a year and would "easily pay for the wall."
Business Insider reports Spicer said Trump's measure would get the U.S. in line with policies of other major countries in the world.
He wants to expand the 20% import to all countries, not just Mexico.
