Is Mexico still paying for Donald Trump's border wall?

President Donald Trump's had a startling new thought about his infamous wall.

He's still going to build it, but the people he's sending the bill to may no longer be Mexicans.

CBS's Paula Reid says the President's signature campaign promise could be being paid by Americans.

In last week's budget, US$1.6 billion (NZ$2.2 billion) of US taxpayer money was included, which Trump said was a down payment on the wall.

He also suggested that The Pentagon pay for the estimated US$25 billion wall.

Ms Reid said even Vice President Mike Pence told a crowd that "when it comes to building a wall, we're going to build it all".
