Flip and find out what Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto had to say…
Is this how Trump is going to be as president? A clueless, high society snob that offends everyone in this country and all our foreign affairs?
People NEED TO WAKE Up and #DUMPTRUMP! Republicans what were you thinking? He is going to screw over everyone!
Anyways on Wednesday Peña Nieto and Trump was organized at the last minute and was characterized by the Mexican president “open and constructive.”
The two had a cordial press conference in Mexico City where they basically said they agreed to disagree on the issue of immigration. But Peña Nieto has not forgotten that Trump said that Mexico sends its “rapists” and “criminals” to U.S..
After their cordial meet and greet, and Trump’s hardline immigration keynote speech, in a tense interview on Mexican television, Peña Nieto struck a different note.
Peña Nieto said after enduring criticism from opposition politicians he reported:
“His policy stances could represent a huge threat to Mexico, and I am not prepared to keep my arms crossed and do nothing,”
“That risk, that threat, must be confronted. I told him that is not the way to build a mutually beneficial relationship for both nations.”
FOX Latino reports:
In the days leading up to his Mexico trip and immigration address, Trump had appeared to back down from some of the key proposals of his immigration policy, like the creation of an armed force dedicated to deporting undocumented migrants and suggesting that some would be allowed a path to legal status.
“Our message to the world will be this: You cannot obtain legal status or become a citizen of the United States by illegally entering our country,”
“Can’t do it. This declaration alone will stop the crisis of illegal crossing. You can’t just smuggle in, hunker down and wait to be legalized. Those days are over.”
Ricardo Anaya, the head of the conservative National Action Party (PAN), criticized Peña Nieto before Trump’s visit, as well as after the candidate’s speech in Arizona.
Anaya wrote on Twitter:
“Instead of making [Trump] apologize, the government allowed him to complete the humiliation of the Mexicans.”
A government official who requested anonymity told Reuters that the two politicians spoke English during their meeting, and that Peña Nieto clearly expressed to Trump that he had offended a lot of people in Mexico with his campaign speeches.
In the interview, Peña Nieto also contradicted one point that Trump made during their joint press conference. Trump told reporters that while the two men had discussed his proposal to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, they had not discussed who would pay for it. Peña Nieto insisted on TV that he had reiterated his unwillingness to pay for the wall to Trump during their closed door meeting.
Trump has some nerve!
Why doesn’t he use his billions to build the wall since it bothers him so much? He is sounding like KKK!
Thoughts? We are with Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto!
