On Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence assured the American people that President Trump will keep his campaign promise to make Mexico pay for his proposed border wall.
In an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” with George Stephanopoulos, Pence said Trump “laid out his priorities” in Tuesday night’s address to a joint session of Congress.

“One of the things people saw last night is that the candidate Donald Trump, is the president Donald Trump and he spoke about those priorities,” Pence said.
“We’re going to build a wall. We’re going to enforce the laws of this country.”
Stephanopoulos interrupted, “He didn’t say Mexico would pay for it.”
“Well, they are,” Pence responded.
“And we’re going to make sure that we get, in his words, the criminal aliens out of this country first. But it was last summer that the president said that with regard to those that are remaining, that we’ll see,”he said.
“And I think what you saw last night was the president acting on the priorities that he ran on, and I think that is the reason why this speech is being so well received, is that people are seeing that the agenda that they voted for, the agenda that a majority of Americans believe is the right agenda, is exactly the agenda President Trump is advancing,” Pence said.
