ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Friday (February 12), when asked by a reporter to comment on Mexico refusing to pay for a wall between the two countries, said, "The wall just got ten feet higher. He made the comment at a campaign rally in Tampa, Florida. "So I got a call from one of the reporters yesterday, and they said, 'The president of Mexico said they will not under any circumstances pay for the wall," Trump said. "They said to me, 'What is your comment?' I said the wall just got ten feet higher." Trump is currently leading in the polls in the Republican race for the White House. On Saturday, Republican presidential candidates will take the stage at CBS News' televised debate, with Trump flanked by rivals Ted Cruz and Jeb Bush, the network said.
