President of Mexico Cancels Meeting with Donald Trump Over Wall Disagreement

The President of Mexico has officially cancelled the meeting with Donald Trump after they’ve been going back and forth over who will pay for the wall on the US-Mexico border.

“This morning we informed the White House I will not attend the business meeting scheduled for next Tuesday with @POTUS,” Enrique Pena tweeted in Spanish on Thursday (January 26).

Earlier in the day, Donald Trump responded to the President of Mexico’s comments about how they would not be paying for the wall.

    Of course they won’t pay for it. Trump will claim Mexico paid for it through trade deals and other agreements.

    Mexico will pay for the wall, not the US taxpayer. #alternativefacts

    It won’t be a claim if he renegotiates all of these trade deals. I think he will be successful at that but only time will tell. I know he is keeping jobs here and if Apple and Foxconn start producing over here that will be a boost in jobs.

    Clearly you haven’t been paying attention. You’re in for a shock to find that all of us will be stuck with this 16 billion dollar bill.

    Trump wants to use money seized from Mexican drug cartels and people traffickers to pay for the border wall.

    The total estimate for the wall is 25 billion dollars. There is a fence built in 2007 already. MOSt illegal hispanics are here on a work visa that has expired. A wall is stupid and a total waste of money. The fence is good enough. They can get here through tunnels and other creative means. Nothing good comes out of a racist fear reaction

    That business meeting is more important for Mexico, than for the US. and Mexican president has failed once again. No surprise that Pena’s approval rating dropped to 12%.

    Something Nieto and the MSM won’t talk about is all of the unrest in Mexico. Nieto is less popular than Trump in Mexico

    If apple and foxconn start producing over here the price of their products will be even higher. These companies choose foreign labor because IT IS CHEAPER. The cost of living is so much lower over there and there is no way americans(legal American citizens) will work for the same low amounts. On what planet is any company gonna agree to make less money just because trump says so? And furthermore, all of the politicians who take donations and campaign support from companies will not vote against their interest.

  • Sofia

    No, actually no one in Mexico wanted that meeting to go on.

    If you want a fence around your yard, you have to pay for it, end of story. Filtering money away for trade “deals” is not the same thing. He’s full of it. It was a silly idea and its sad to see him still running with it. Whatever he puts up will only be torn down in four years anyways…..

  • Cooper

    You are only talking about part of the equation. You are also leaving out the tax trump would impose (35%) compared to what he wants (15%). Also, building within the state cuts down on shipping expenses and even though the labor is cheaper they are adding More jobs just to perform this early jobs. You would need to do a lot more data on apples manufacturing processes/costs, overhead expenses as well as other expenses to make that statement. I work for a freight company and trust me that’s a lot of expense shipping over seas like they do now that people don’t know and don’t talk about. Also, you are talking about not having to deal with customs that could slow down shipping times and we aren’t talking about shipments that “get lost” on the way here. Also, android is more popular overseas here in the states Apple is king so it may still Ben more feasible to move US production here.

  • John Dow

    Obviously you know nothing about business. U.S. manufacturing costs are almost as low as China’s.

    Sorry, didn’t catch the hashtag..

  • Whiteley

    No problem 👍.
