Spicer's take 2 on the import tax for Mexico
After mentioning a 20% border tax for Mexico and then claiming it wasn't an actual policy proposal, WH press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters the plans to pay for the wall are still in the works. BUT an import tax was the best plan.
He added that any country the U.S. has a deficit with would be taxed, and claimed a 20% tax would bring in $10 billion, which would "easily pay for the wall."
Plus, the wall would keep immigrants out, Spicer said, which would save more tax dollars spent on deportations.
