Paul Ryan: "A Lot Of Different Ways Of Getting Mexico To Contribute" To Paying For The Wall


On Wednesday's broadcast of Greta Van Susteren's new show on MSNBC, "For the Record," House Speaker Paul Ryan said there were many possible ways to get Mexico to help pay for building a wall on the border. Ryan also said a cost estimate of between $8-14 billion was "about right."
