Jake Tapper Nails Donald Trump's Lie About Mexico Paying For The Wall

The CNN host aired archive footage from his show as evidence.

CNN’s Jake Tapper delved into his show’s archives to slam President Donald Trump’s latest “demonstrably false” claim about his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Trump claimed Thursday that, during the 2016 election campaign, he never said Mexico would pay directly for the wall.

However, he did, and Tapper had the evidence.

“Donald Trump did indeed say that he would force Mexico to make a direct payment to the United States. We reported it on this very show, April 5, 2016,” he explained, before rolling the tape of said show.
