Building wall least important thing: Donald Trump to Mexican President
US President Donald Trump during his call to Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto admitted that his promise to take Mexico to pay for a controversial border wall was stuck as he described the wall “the least important.”
The Washington Post yesterday published transcripts of talks with Trump Nieto, and Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull highly ranked, in another embarrassing flight for the president of the United States.
Trump promised during the 2016 campaign that not only the border wall between the United States and Mexico would be built, but that Mexico would pay. Trump said he built the wall to stop illegal immigration from Mexico.
In his conversation with Nieto Trump intends to hear that the Mexican president must stop saying that Mexico does not pay the wall.
Trump seems to recognize that his threats from Mexico charge him politically stuck, saying that “they are both in a political bond because I have to pay the Mexican wall – I have to do it.”
“Believe it or not, this is the least important thing we talked about, but politically, this could be the most important issue, but in terms of dollars – or pesos – is the least important thing.
I know how to build very cheap, so it will be much lower than the numbers I get, and it will be a better wall and it will be nice.
And it’s going to do the job, “Trump said, speaking of the question of building the wall on the US-Mexico border.
According to the transcripts, Trump is heard asking the Mexican leader not to tell the press that Mexico would not pay for the construction of the wall on the US-Mexican border.
The wall was one of the main electoral promises of the president of the United States. During his election campaign, Trump said Mexico would pay for the wall. Pena Nieto has repeatedly pointed out that Mexico will not pay the wall.
“You can not tell the press because I can not negotiate under these circumstances,” said Trump Pena Nieto, according to the transcripts.
In his conversation with the Australian Prime Minister, Trump is meant to shake the issue of refugees and finally tells him that the call was the most painful day.
