Trump on Mexico: ‘Nobody can build a fence like me’

Donald Trump, the real estate mogul flirting with a 2016 GOP White House bid, promises he would build a great wall along America’s southern border.

“I would build a wall like nobody can build a wall,” Trump said in an interview with “The Brody File” released Wednesday on the Christian Broadcasting Network.

{mosads}”Nobody can build a fence like me,” Trump said of a way to limit the flow of people entering the country illegally. “I build great buildings all over the world.”

Trump, who has recently traveled to early-voting states including Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, claimed that thousands of people “just walk by” the current border.

“Some [are] good people, and some rapists and some killers and some drug lords and everyone else,” Trump said.

But after his wall is installed?

“Nobody comes in illegally anymore,” Trump said.

Specifics on such a wall, which Trump has advocated for some time, remain unclear. But he already has some financiers in mind.

“I would have Mexico pay for it,” he said. “Believe me. They will pay for it, because they have really ripped this country off. They have really taken advantage of us both economically and at the border. They will pay for that fence.”
