(Before It's News)

Donald Trump said in an early Friday morning tweet that he acknowledges taxpayers may have to initially foot the bill to build a wall on the southern border – but then he slammed the mainstream media for failing to report that he also insists Mexico will have to pay back the United States down the line.

Earlier this week, various media outlets reported that Trump was working with Republicans on Capitol Hill to devise a way to pay for the wall’s construction through the appropriations process.

Media outlets reporting on these discussions also pointed out Trump’s campaign vow was to not only build the wall, but make Mexico pay for it.

Trump on Friday clarified that “for the sake of speed,” U.S. taxpayers may have to initially foot the bill. But then he blasted the media for failing to report the rest of his message.

On Friday, Trump tweeted this: “The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed). will be paid back by Mexico later!”

Donald Trump tweeted this message Friday, in response to media outlets that tried to paint him as backtracking on his campaign vow.Donald Trump tweeted this message Friday, in response to media outlets that tried to paint him as backtracking on his campaign vow.
