Trump Stays True to His Word to Build the Wall
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE – May 30, 2018
Donald Trump said Mexico has done nothing to stop illegal immigrants from crossing into the United States. And he pledged again that Mexico will be forced to pay for a border wall.
“In the end, Mexico is going to pay for the wall,” the US president said to his supporters in a rally in Nashville. “They do absolutely nothing to stop people from going through Mexico, from Honduras and all these other countries … They do nothing to help us.”
Trump promised to build the wall with Mexico on May 1, 2016.
Mexico will pay for the wall!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 1, 2016
The Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto answered quickly that Mexicans would never pay for the wall.
President @realDonaldTrump: NO. Mexico will NEVER pay for a wall. Not now, not ever.— Enrique Peña Nieto (@EPN) May 30, 2018
Sincerely, Mexico (all of us).
He has repeatedly underlined that statement. The outgoing Mexican president will leave office soon and will not participate in the general election scheduled for July 1.
Trump also continues his work on the new North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in hopes of getting a better deal with Mexico and Canada.
