President Barack Obama Tuesday dismissed as "half-baked" a reported plan by Donald Trump to force Mexico to pay for a giant wall along the southern U.S. border.The Republican front-runner's promise to build the wall, in an effort to stop illegal immigration, and force Mexico to foot the estimated $8 billion bill is a cornerstone of his under-fire campaign to win the U.S. presidency.In the memo, Trump threatened to change a rule under the anti-terrorism Patriot Act that would cut off a portion of the funds sent to Mexico through money transfers, the Post reported.Trump's memo said the threat would be withdrawn if Mexico made "a one-time payment of $5-10 billion" to pay for the wall, the newspaper added.
