Days after the election, President-elect Donald Trump has already begun the transition process, and he’s immediately started moving forward on one of the biggest promises of his campaign.

Conservative Tribune reported that Trump plans to begin building the wall he promised along the U.S.-Mexico border in March of 2017. A source in his team said he is planning major spending negotiations with congress in March to fund the wall via Mexico, whether it’s directly or indirectly.

Some of the ways Trump has proposed to force Mexico to pay for the wall include increased fees for visas and border crossing cards, enforcement of trade tariffs and taxes on remittances.

“I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively,” Trump said when he announced his presidency, adding, “I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

There is currently around 650 miles of fence along the southern border, but plans to build a bigger wall that would stand about 35 to 50 feet high along the 2,000 mile U.S./Mexico border and be built out of pre-cast concrete.

The cost for building is estimated at around $8 billion to $12 billion, but Trump says it would be a “real wall” that “actually looks good.”

Liberals are furious about this, as they have always accused Trump of being racist for even suggesting the wall. However, conservatives everywhere are applauding this measure, as they believe something must be done to stop illegal immigrants from pouring into this country.
