House Speaker Paul Ryan says Congress will front the money for President Donald Trump’s newly announced wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

He confirms in an interview on MSNBC that a suggested price tag between $8 billion and $14 billion is “about right.”

Ryan also says that there are different ways to get Mexico to pay—something Trump long promised.

But he says the point is Trump promised to secure the border, congressional Republicans agree, and they will work together to finance the construction.
