Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump confirmed his recent comments about building a wall at the United States' border with Mexico, saying Friday, "Mexico will pay" to build it.

Trump spoke with CNN about his opinions on the matter.

Story continues below video.


"I will build the wall and Mexico's going to pay for it and they will be happy to for it. Because Mexico is making so much money from the United States that that's going to be peanuts," Trump told CNN. "And all these other characters say, 'Oh, they won't pay, they won't pay.' They don't know the first thing about how to negotiate. Trust me, Mexico will pay."

Trump spoke to CNN at Trump Turnberry Resort in Scotland, a golf course and hotel complex he owns. He's visiting the course this week during the Women's British Open.

Trump first said he would force Mexico, should he win the presidential election next year, to pay for a wall at the border in June.

"They have taken advantage of us for a long time," Trump told Newsmax TV on June 29. "Between trade and between the border, they will pay for that wall. … Remember what I said: They will pay for that wall."

Experts have said, however, that Trump's promise of having a wall built to separate the two countries could come with a multibillion-dollar price tag

Trump's poll numbers have surged in recent weeks, and he leads in several national polls of Republican candidates in the presidential race. The results of a new poll in Iowa, for example, show Trump has a significant lead over the rest of the GOP field.

Another poll in Arizona, meanwhile, showed Trump has a commanding lead in the Grand Canyon State

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said this week he would consider running as Trump's vice presidential nominee if Trump gets a spot on the presidential ballot.
