>> They brought back many of those jobs.>> US President Donald Trump telling Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto that if his country doesn't pay for the border wall, then Peña Nieto should cancel next week's trip to the White House. In a tweet Thursday morning, Trump said, the US has a $60 billion trade deficit with Mexico.
It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA, with massive numbers of jobs and companies lost. If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting. This comes a day after Trump signed an executive order to beef up border control and start construction on a new wall between the two countries.
Many in Mexico are furious over the timing of Trump's actions, with top Mexican officials currently meeting with the Trump administration. Peña Nieto reacting to that Wednesday night, posting a video to Twitter saying, Mexico does not believe in walls. I've said time and again, Mexico will not pay for any wall.
Adding, I regret and condemn the United States' decision to continue with the construction of a wall that for years now, far from uniting us, divides us. Trump's verbal attacks on Mexico have put Peña Nieto under rising domestic pressure to react. His approval ratings are at the lowest level of any Mexican president in years.
