Mind-boggled Twitter users began offering him some sage advice in regards to his odd payment plan and the plagiarized name. @realDonaldTrump It's probably not the best idea to refer to it as the "Great Wall". — Cody Johnston (@drmistercody) January 6, 2017 Regarding the "Great Wall": Buying something up front expecting someone else to pay it back is how the market collapsed in 2008. herp derp

Despite the fact that China thinks Donald Trump is a ridiculous tweeter, Trump is still a YUGE fan of the nation’s Great Wall.

In fact, he loves China’s Great Wall so much that he’s creatively decided to start calling his own architectural dream structure by the same exact name.

On Friday, the president-elect attempted to shut down the “dishonest media” with a single tweet, reassuring followers that Mexico will pay for wall he plans to build across the U.S. and Mexico border… eventually.

But for some unknown reason, Trump thought it would be a good idea to refer to his own wall as the “Great Wall” — a name that is most definitely already taken.

Trump’s tweet explained that though he has decided to seek wall funding from congress “for sake of speed,” any costs for the wall “will be paid back by Mexico later!”

The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!
