How Much Is That In Pesos?

President Donald Trump, the great deal maker, wants U.S. taxpayers to pony up $18 billion to pay for the first leg of his border wall, saying “in some form, Mexico will pay for the wall.”

If you’re counting on this, US $18 billion is 345,295,800,000.00 Mexican Pesos. No aguantes la respiración (don’t hold your breath).


“Nation with Crumbling Bridges and Roads Excited to Build Giant Wall,” Andy Borowitz, The New Yorker

“Four things Trump could spend $18 billion on instead of a border wall,” Oliver Staley, Quartz
