Days after vowing to "close down our government" in order to push through funding for his controversial border wall, President Donald Trump reiterated Sunday his oft-repeated campaign promise to make Mexico "pay for it," hinting that may come with a rewrite of NAFTA.

President Trump's statements came via his favorite medium, morning Twitter tweets.

The tweet echoed statements he made to an Arizona rally Tuesday night, where he also vowed to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, which he added was "one of the worst deals that anyone in history has ever been into."

President Trump's "Art of the Deal" strategy postulates deals are often best negotiated from a clean slate, suggesting he will tear up NAFTA entirely and write a new deal as opposed to modifying the existing one between the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

He echoed that sentiment in an ensuing tweet Sunday.

The juxtaposition of his Sunday tweets suggest he will be using NAFTA's reworking as a piece of having "Mexico pay for" the border wall on the Southwest of the United States.
