He DID say that Mexico would pay for the wall outright.

This article from the Washington Post shows a letter from the Trump Campaign to Robert Costa and Bob Woodward, dated 2016.  Click the link below and read the letter on its original letterhead.

Donald Trump indeed indicated that he expected Mexico “to make a one-time payment $5 to $10 billion” to pay for the wall.

(Seriously. He did say it.)

 

 

“When I said Mexico would pay for the wall … obviously I never meant Mexico would write a check.”

“The past was alterable. The past never had been altered.

“Oceania was at war with Eastasia. Oceania had always been at war with Eastasia.  A large part of the political literature of five years was now completely obsolete. Reports and records of all kinds, newspapers, books, pamphlets, films, sound-tracks, photographs — all had to be rectified at lightning speed. Although no directive was ever issued, it was known that the chiefs of the Department intended that within one week no reference to the war with Eurasia, or the alliance with Eastasia, should remain in existence anywhere. ”

— from George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four”
