Mexico Will Pay For Wall, Trump Insists

Mexico's Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray announces the dual year 2017-2018 between Mexico and Colombia during a news conference in Mexico C

Last Sunday, just five days before the second round of the renegotiations of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), President Donald Trump criticized Mexico again.

In addition, Trump said during a campaign-style rally in Phoenix on August 22 that NAFTA will "probably" be terminated.

The US, Mexico and Canada have begun formal negotiations to rework the 23-year-old trade deal that Trump blames for hundreds of thousands of lost US factory jobs.

In a statement released Sunday, Mexico's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, "As the Mexican government has always stated, our country will not pay, under any circumstances, for a wall or physical barrier built on US territory along the Mexican border". That's right. It may be through reimbursement, but one way or the other, Mexico will pay for the wall.

During the press conference after meeting with President Niinistö of Finland, Trump said in response to a reporter's question on the border wall payment, "One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the wall".

Mexico sees a serious risk the United States will withdraw from NAFTA and is planning for that eventuality, Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo said on Tuesday, calling talks to renegotiate the deal a "roller coaster" that could lead to an impasse.

The Texans also pledged $1 million to the flood relief efforts. "There is an emptiness in the thought we would play in Houston". This is not going to be solved by one win, this is not going to be solved overnight and we want our people to be safe.

Canada and Mexico account for one third of US agricultural trade.

Trump added that the amount of drugs that's coming into the US from Mexico is another reason why there needs to be a wall.

"If Donald Trump threatens to walk away from it, no problem", said Jerry Dias, national president of Unifor, which represents auto industry workers in Canada. We need the wall very badly. A May poll from Fox News found that only 36% of Americans think the wall will be built and only 25% believe Mexico will pay for it.

Without Democratic support, current and former congressional aides from both parties said they expected Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who has been sharply criticized by Trump in recent weeks, to opt for a spending bill without wall funding to get legislation to the president's desk.

Mexico previously provided help in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, with soldiers from the Mexican army serving meals, distributing supplies and conducting medical consultations. It's imperative. We may fund it through the United States, but ultimately, Mexico will pay for the wall.

"From an economic issue", he said, "it is the least important thing we were talking about".
