President Donald Trump Renews 'Mexico To Pay For Wall' Campaign Pledge

Adjust Comment Print

Mexico has insisted it won't fund Trump's border wall in response to the president's tweets that claimed he would force the country to pay for his promised wall. Trump looks set for a repeat performance on tax reform, too: as Axios reports, the president is asking the House Ways and Means Committee to write the bill on its own, allowing Trump space to either take credit for its success or distance himself, depending on the outcome.

Griffith said that Peña Nieto is unequivocal "publicly", although Camerota had quoted him during a private conversation that was later released, that Mexico will "want to continue to have trade with these United States, and to bring their products north".

'The government of Mexico takes this opportunity to express its full solidarity with the people and government of the United States for the damages caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas and reports that we have offered the U.S. government all the help and cooperation that can be provided by the different Mexican governmental agencies to deal with the impacts of this natural disaster, as good neighbors should always do in times of difficulty'.

"But he's not saying that Mexico is going to pay for it now", a reporter said. "It has to be a partnership, I have no doubt about that".

The selectors will have a tough decision to make between Taskin Ahmed and Shafiul Islam, but Shafiul might just get the nod. So, four postponed Test series and hundreds of billions of tweets later, here we are, for what should be a close battle.

Already, negotiations are getting bogged down by Trump's demand that Republican leadership pair legislation with a rider that includes funding for his border wall-funding that Democrats have said they will reject.

"If we have to close down our government, we're building that wall", he said. "So why is he now threatening a government shutdown if Congress won't pay for it?" a reporter asked Sanders. The tweet spurred a spike in investor concern that Congress and the White House may not act in time. Congress must agree to an overall funding bill that Trump signs into law by September 30 or the government will shut down, according to CNBC. "Republican will win S!", Trump also tweeted on Sunday.

'We are in the NAFTA (worst trade deal ever made) renegotiation process with Mexico & Canada.Both being very hard, may have to terminate?' Trump tweeted Sunday morning.

Last Tuesday, in a speech before his supporters in Phoenix, Arizona, the president had stated that he does not think possible to come to an agreement during the renegotiation of the free trade treaty.
