Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Border Wall Important ‘No Matter Who Pays for It’

arpaioSheriff Joe Arpaio, a major Donald Trump supporter, said this afternoon that it really doesn’t matter who pays for the border wall.

During his press conference in Mexico this afternoon, Trump said that he and President Enrique Peña Nieto “didn’t discuss payment of the wall.”

CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Arpaio about Trump not bringing up the wall. Arpaio responded, “What difference does it make? The wall’s important no matter who pays for it.”

He also said that if Mexico doesn’t pay, maybe foreign aid to them could be deducted.

And Arpaio praised Trump’s “courage” for meeting with Peña Nieto in the first place.
