Mexican President to Trump: My Nation 'Demands Respect'
HEAR ME ROAR
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Wednesday condemned President Trump’s executive orders on immigration. “Mexico offers and demands respect, like the completely sovereign nation that we are,” he said. “Mexico does not believe in walls.” Nieto emphasized, once again, that his country “will not pay for a wall.” He added, “I regret and reproach the decision of the United States to build a wall that for many years, far from uniting us, has divided us.” In a televised interview on Wednesday night, Trump said that the wall will begin construction “in months” and that Mexico will reimburse taxpayers “at a later date.”
