PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The White House is now offering some details on how the border wall between the United States and Mexico might be paid for.

Spokesman Sean Spicer tells reporters that President Donald Trump wants to see a 20 percent tax on imports from Mexico to pay for the wall.

Earlier today, Mexico's president announced that he wouldn't be coming to Washington next week for a planned summit with Trump.

Trump today had tweeted that if Mexico isn't willing to pay for the wall, the meeting should be canceled.
