Mexico Refuses to Pay for the Wall

in Mexico/News by

Donald Trump has the idea of building a wall between the US and Mexican border, and he wants Mexico to pay for it. However, their southern neighbor will “never” pay for the wall which separates the two countries, according to Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Nieto tweeted to Donald Trump, and he said that nobody wants to pay for the wall. Here is the Tweet: “President @realDonaldTrump: NO. Mexico will NEVER pay for a wall. Not now, not ever.

Sincerely, Mexico (all of us).”

Even though Mexico strongly opposes such ideas, which is more than reasonable and understandable, Trump is confident that they will do it eventually. POTUS addressed the crowd at a rally yesterday saying that the neighbors would foot the bill for a border wall, which according to Trump should reduce illegal immigration drastically.

Another problem that might be solved is the traffic of illegal substances that according to the US government representatives, are mostly coming through this country. While this approach might not completely stop these activities, it would certainly make it a lot harder for smugglers to transport their goods.

This was not the first time Nieto was grossed by such idea. The problem between the two leaders is recurring, and Nieto delayed his visit to White House as he was arguing about the wall with Washington officials. Trump, who promised the wall and who said that Mexicans would pay for it, still has to find a way to take the money from the southern neighbors. Will he succeed in his intentions? Something tells me that this quarrel will go on for as long Trump is at the seat of power. Who knows what might be his next move.
