Trump: Mexico will reimburse US for the wall

The United States is going to build a wall along the Mexican border, the President-elect Donald Trump said on Wednesday, adding that Mexico will reimburse the US in one way or another, whether through a tax or a payment. 

Speaking during his first press conference since July, Trump said that Vice President-elect Mike Pence is already leading an effort to get a final approval for building the wall between the US and Mexico, and insisted that the payment for the wall will "take care of itself." However, he added that he "loves Mexico" and that he doesn't blame the country for taking advantage of the States. 

Trump also spoke about his choice for the Supreme Court chief judge, claiming that he has a list of 20 candidates for the job and that he will make a decision on the matter "probably within two weeks of the January 20."

When asked about his tweet earlier today, in which he compares the US with Nazi Germany, Trump repeated it was "disgraceful" that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be false.
