Mexican president slams Trump over border plan

Mexico Agrees to Pay for Trump's Psychiatric Care

Mexico Agrees to Pay for Trump's Psychiatric Care

Stating that "threatening or disrespectful attitudes" were unjustified, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto lashed out at his USA counterpart Donald Trump amid growing tensions over migration and border security.

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox appeared on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" Friday to tear apart President Donald Trump's claim that migrants headed to the United States are "raping" women "at levels that nobody has ever seen before".

Pena Nieto has twice canceled plans to visit Washington after tense phone calls with Trump in which the Republican president refused to back down from his insistence that Mexico pay for his planned border wall. We're not going to allow negative rhetoric to define our activities.

He also said the "so-called caravan" happens every year, and that Mexico is effective at sending many of those traveling from Central America back to their own countries.

"President Trump: if you want to reach agreements with Mexico, we stay prepared, as we have proved until today, constantly keen to participate into a dialog, behaving into earnestness, in very good faith and in a constructive spirit", he said.

The Mexican Senate also on Thursday slammed Trump's call to put the National Guard at the nation's border with the United States.

Trump's move comes as Mexico is in the midst of a hotly contested campaign for president. On Wednesday he responded to Trump's latest moves by declaring that "we will not accept the use of force, the militarization of the border". The candidates seeking to replace Mr. Pena Nieto as president all condemned Mr. Trump, and blasted his comments on immigration this week, as well as his decision to deploy the National Guard.

"He lies, lies, lies, lies again to the American people", Fox said.

David Cuauhtemoc Gallindo, the mayor of the border city of Nogales, said that Trump's comments "generate a certain amount of scandal but no fear in Nogales". "As far as the construction of a wall, here in Nogales we have a barrier that was built years ago".
