- And yet still, Trump insists he will build a wall.... from Telesur this morning:
After months of insults against Mexicans, Trump said again he plans to build a wall to protect U.S. citizens.
presidential nominee Donald Trump said he hasn’t changed his mind and he
still plans to build a wall on the border with Mexico, after a meeting with Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto in Mexico City on Wednesday.
make Mexico pay for it.
During a round of questions by reporters, Trump said he had not discussed who would pay for the proposed wall.
“We’re saving that discussion for a later date,” said Trump
The visit sparked a strong debate on Trump’s xenophobic campaign against Mexicans, and in an attempt to boost his popularity, Trump turned to praising the Mexicans that work for his organization.
Trump visited Mexico after an invitation from President Peña Nieto, the same that was extended to Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, which she refused.
In June 2015, Trump said: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best ... They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox, who has had several altercations with Trump, said his visit was a “great mistake” during an interview with CNN.
"Trump is using Mexico, he’s using President Pena to improve his sagging poll numbers," said Fox.
Trump is expected to give a speech on his immigration policies on Wednesday night in Arizona.
