Donald Trump would force Mexico to pay for a border wall by threatening to cut off billions of dollars in remittances sent by immigrants living in the U.S., according to a memo released by his campaign Tuesday. The memo outlines how Trump would try to compel Mexico to pay for a 1,000-mile wall if he becomes president. In his proposal, Trump threatened to change a rule under the USA Patriot Act, an anti-terrorism law, to cut off funds sent to Mexico through money transfers known as remittances. Trump said he would withdraw the threat if Mexico makes “a one-time payment of $5-10 billion” to finance the wall”/Associated Press. More here.
Question: Do you expect Mexico would retaliate if President Trump tried something like this?
