Vice News:

President-elect Donald Trump is still two weeks away from his inauguration, but he’s already backpedaling on one of his biggest campaign promises: to make Mexico pay for the construction of a massive wall along America’s southwest border.

Multiple reports emerged late Thursday evening and early Friday morning, citing unnamed officials from Trump’s transition team, that U.S. taxpayer dollars could be used to extend the fence that already exists along more than 650 miles of the border.

Trump took to Twitter Friday morning to insist that Mexico would reimburse the U.S. for any money spent on the project, which has been projected to cost anywhere from $8 billion to more than $25 billion, depending on the design and location of the structure.
