Donald Trump flew in an unmarked jet to a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto Wednesday. The meeting was hastily put together but we give huge credit to Trump for making the effort. Hillary chose to troll Trump. Trump laid out his 5-step plan to improve relations with Mexico, which includes a border wall.
The meeting ended in a news conference with both men standing at podiums within a few feet of each other. Trump stood his ground and handled the press like a champ. It was really a great opportunity for Trump to show he can negotiate and meet with world leaders.
The five items Trump wants to focus oare:
•Ending illegal immigration, not just from Mexico but from Central American countries
•Having a secure border, which Trump says is a sovereign right and mutually beneficial
•Dismantling of the drug cartels and ending the movement of illegal drugs, weapons and funds across the border
•Keep manufacturing wealth in our hemisphere
Nieto said the US-Mexican border security must address illegal flow south of arms and cash, as well as immigration north. Trump said while he understands why some Mexicans have been offended by Trump’s comments, he believes he can work with Trump to achieve goals that will improve the situation in Mexico as well.
“We recognize and respect the right of either country to build a physical barrier or wall on any of its borders to stop the illegal movement of people, drugs and weapons,” said Trump. Trump said while the two men discussed the border, he said they didn’t talk about who would pay for the wall. After the news conference, Pena Nieto said he told Trump that Mexico won’t pay for a border wall, contradicting Trump.
To wrap up his speech, Trump said his meeting with Nieto was “excellent” and it was a “tremendous honor.”
