President Trump told ABC’s David Muir, in an exclusive interview set to air Wednesday night, that while Mexico will not pay up front for a border wall, they will “100 percent” reimburse the United States for its cost.

“We will, in a form, be reimbursed by Mexico,” Trump said. “We’ll be reimbursed at a later date from whatever transaction we make from Mexico.”

Muir asked Trump when construction would begin on the wall.

“As soon as we can physically do it,” Trump said, adding the timeline of “months.”
