President Donald Trump, “A Nation without borders is not a Nation.”
In a Tweet sent out late Thursday morning, President Nieto said, “This morning we informed the White House I will not attend the business meeting scheduled for next Tuesday with President Trump.”
The announcement came shortly after President Trump Tweeted that it would “be better for Nieto to cancel the meeting”.
“The US has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers … of jobs and companies lost. If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting,” President Trump said on Twitter.
A Summit between the 2 Presidents was scheduled for next week, but the leaders have been locked in an ongoing public battle over the funding for a proposed wall along the US-Mexican border.
President Trump insists that the Mexican government will be forced to pay for the wall and President Nieto has repeatedly voiced his refused.
“I believe the steps we will take starting right now will improve the safety in both of our countries,” President Donald Trump said as he announced the orders. “A Nation without borders is not a Nation.”
Plans are underway to build The Wall, I expect it will be build, and Mexico will ultimately pay for it in one form or another.
