Mexico: Peña Nieto Tells Trump That They Will Not Pay for the Wall
MEXICO – May 30, 2018
The Mexican president, Enrique Peña Nieto, has informed the World that his country will not pay "neither now nor ever" for the wall that Donald Trump, intends to build between both countries. Nieto expressed his position through his Twitter account, where he published a double message in both Spanish and English, only a few hours after the Republican tycoon affirmed once more his electoral campaign promises.
It should be noted that the President's insistence on ensuring that Mexico would have to fork out for the construction of his promised border barrier caused strong tensions with the Mexican government, which has rejected on several occasions the idea of Mexico paying for a US border wall.
Trump has also failed to get Congress to approve the wall being built with federal funds, and now the billionaire has taken up the idea that it will be the Mexicans who will pay for it.
