Fact-checking Trump's Speech

Washington (CNN)In his first formal address to the nation from the Oval Office, President Donald Trump painted a picture of a national threat and humanitarian crisis occurring along the US-Mexico border, saying his signature border wall would provide a solution.

Trump: "The wall will also be paid for indirectly by the great new trade deal we have made with Mexico." Trump long ago abandoned his 2016 campaign promise that Mexico would pay to build a wall.

Instead, he now makes the case that Mexico will "indirectly" pay for the barrier, thanks to the potential increase in tax revenue generated by his replacement for the North America Free Trade Agreement.
