Mexico Responds To Trump's Attacks By Offering Help

In response, Mexico's foreign ministry issued a statement Sunday afternoon reiterating the country's position that it will not "in any way or under any circumstance" pay for Trump's signature border wall.

During the presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly assailed NAFTA, which went into effect on January 1, 1994, greatly easing trade barriers between the United States, Mexico and Canada.

He also tweeted that Mexico will pay for it 'through reimbursement/other'. ".The fact is we are both in a little bit of a political bind, because I have to have Mexico pay for the wall - I have to". Donald Trump is bitching about a border wall, Mexico's offering to help us, so I ask you this. And that's another reason we need it.

"Believe it or not, this is the least important thing that we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important talk about", the USA head of state told Peña Nieto.

While the threat to walk away could be viewed as a negotiating tactic, bashing NAFTA has been a consistent applause line at the President's public appearances over the last two years.

Trump on Monday claimed the barrier "will stop much of the drugs pouring into this country and poisoning our youth".

Trump promised repeatedly during the 2016 election campaign that he would scrap the 1994 free-trade agreement if he could not renegotiate its terms to better advantage.

Barcelona sue Neymar for alleged breach of contract
Well, actually I have something to say: That I am disappointed with them. " Barcelona deserves more and everyone knows it". Neymar had originally signed a contract extension this summer through 2021. "I'm very sad with them", Neymar said .

CBS notes that the president has not claimed that Mexico would pay for the wall since The Washington Post released transcripts of his January 27 phone call with Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Still, Trump said "we may fund it through the USA but ultimately Mexico will be paying for it".

In other words, the president's top rationale for building a wall is based largely on his confusion about what a wall would do. "You're in good hands, I can tell you". We stopped traffic coming through - 78 percent.

"I think it is important to let the renegotiation process play out, and in the end I'm confident the administration can reach an agreement that works as well for the rest of the economy as it has worked for agriculture", Iowa Agriculture Sec.

"We knew it was very likely the president would play this card", he said.

The second is that Trump keeps throwing around that "78 percent" figure, despite the fact that it's a made-up statistic that plainly isn't true.

Twitter is ganging up once more on Donald Trump after he used the social media platform to endorse a couple of his unpopular agendas all while Texas is being battered by Hurricane Harvey.
