Trump Wins Another One. He Isn't Even President Yet!
BREAKING: Mexican Prez. Surrenders… “We’ll Pay”
President-elect Donald Trump might as well have been in
office for the past month. His latest accomplishment already overshadows everything that President Barack Obama did in
the past eight years.
Building a wall on our southern border was a cornerstone of
Trump’s campaign platform, and he insisted that Mexico
would pay for it. Despite repeated denials, Mexico has
now seemed to be inching toward that inevitability.
In a meeting with ambassadors and consuls yesterday,
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said that Mexico
will invest in modernizing and increasing security along
the border, according to El Financiero.
Hmm. That sounds an awful lot like they’re getting ready
to pay for the wall, while saving face as they approach
Trump’s hard line in the sand. If Mexico really believed
the wall was a no-go, they wouldn’t be offering anything
Mexico has a lot to lose if border security is tightened.
Mexicans in the U.S. currently send home some $25 billion in remittances each year. Stopping the flow of
cash would prove devastating to the Mexican economy,
and Peña Nieto said he would work to “maintain the free
flow of remittances,” according to Malaysia’s Sun Daily.
At hiss New York news conference yesterday, Trump
doubled down on his pledge to build the wall sooner
rather than later and to keep American jobs from heading
to Mexico. While he was speaking, the value of the
Mexican peso plunged to a new record low vs. the U.S.
dollar, according to CNBC.
