President Donald Trump will seek a tax on goods imported from Mexico and use the revenue to build a border wall, the White House spokesman has said.
But Trump has been reluctant to describe how the United States would pay to build the wall, outside of saying he would make Mexico foot the bill.
It comes a day after the US President signed an executive order giving the construction of the wall the go ahead.
The import tax plan would "easily" fund the wall, Spicer said.
The White House initially said Thursday that Trump wanted to slap a 20 percent tax on all imports from Mexico.
"I regret and reject the decision of the U.S.to build the wall", he said. "Clearly provides funding, does so that the American taxpayer is respected", he said.
But later, the White House said the idea was just one of several options on the table for paying for a wall along the southern border.
"We'll be reimbursed at a later date from whatever transaction we make from Mexico", he said.

The U.S.is, in fact, on its way to reaching Trump's claim, MarketWatchreported. Trump views the wall, a major part of his election campaign, as part of a package of measures to curb illegal immigration.
