President-elect Donald Trump is reviving arguments about the wall he proposed for the nation's border with Mexico. He criticized the media, a frequent target, in a tweet sent late Sunday, for reports that U.S. taxpayers could get stuck paying the bill..

"Dishonest media says Mexico won't be paying for the wall if they pay a little later so the wall can be built more quickly. Media is fake!"

Trump's team and congressional Republicans are working on a plan in which taxpayers -- at least initially -- would foot the bill. But Trump has claimed repeatedly that Mexico would eventually pay for the wall.
