Remember That Time Obama Made Canada Pay BILLIONS to Build a Border Bridge?

Trump is receiving grief from the media and snowflakes alike for making Mexico pay for the wall. Did they forget this little piece of Obama history? Seems like they need a reminder. 

The Obama administration made Canada pay for the entirety of a $2 billion border bridge — including the U.S. customs plaza.

President Donald Trump is currently pushing to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall; the wall was a major cornerstone of his presidential campaign.

He signed an executive order Wednesday starting the wall’s construction. “A nation without borders is not a nation,” Trump said. “Beginning today, the U.S. gets back control of its borders.”

Canada agreed to pay for the new Detroit-Windsor bridge, U.S. customs building and the access roads around the bridge in 2015, according to The Globe and Mail.

Ottawa failed to get the U.S. to pay for the $250 million customs building, and the Canadian government had already agreed to pay for 95 percent of the bridge’s costs. The bridge is scheduled to be finished in 2020.
