Report: Trump threatened Mexican President Nieto during phone call
That Donald, always the diplomat. Not.
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto cancelled a meeting with President Donald Trump last week after the U.S. president reopened the conversation about the U.S.-Mexico border wall and who would pay for it. However, the two spoke over the phone on Friday in what was described as a threatening call from President Trump.
The call came after White House press secretary Sean Spicer said during a presser that the Trump administration was considering a 20 percent border tax on Mexican imports to pay for the wall.
Journalist Dolia Estevez told the Mexican news outlet Aristegui Noticias that, based on sources close to both the Mexican president and the Trump administration, “It was a very offensive conversation where Trump humiliated Peña Nieto.”
Trump reportedly told the Mexican president that he doesn’t “need the Mexicans,” adding, “I don’t need Mexico. We are going to build the wall and you all are going to pay for it, like it or not.”
Estevez added that Trump reportedly threatened to send troops into Mexico to “fight against narco trafficking.” White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner were allegedly both on the call. Estevez said, “Before this unusual onslaught, Peña was not firm. He was stammering.”
“It was a very offensive conversation,” she said.

trump is trying to bully the world…he MUST be stopped…Iran won’t fall for the bullshit…they are almost as crazy as he is…they will send out those little boats, to flip off our Navy, and trump will start a freakin’ war with them…this is Putin’s idea…I am extremely angry at the gop in congress, allowing this to happen…they are, as far as I am concerned, in violation of their Oaths of Office…and they must be held accountable…we are beyond democrat or republican…we are going to suffer a war, soon…that should bring some of the saner folks together, hopefully, soon enough to stop the worst from happening…

This is only the beginning for us and the world. The fascists have taken over our government and nothing is off the table. WWIII is coming and the pain and suffering will be beyond anything humanity can endure….

the orange pumpkinhead COWARD will not be allowed to start a war in Iran until he kowtows to Saudi Arabia. They won’t give their approval until China gives the nod.
Gina Bousquet February 2nd, 2017 at 06:13
That’s my take on it as well. Sane people in Congress must work together to stop his crazy. Last threatening call was to Australia, he’s set out to bully US allies.

Funny yes, but I spent most of the ’90’s living near the border and they are very serious people. Get up in the morning and go to work just across the border and you might find a headless body lying in the street with a note attached.
granpa.usthai February 2nd, 2017 at 00:28
well, that’s better than seeing headless bodies walking around in the deserts of Arizona I suppose.

This is what trump means by “negotiating.” He used to let his lawyers handle it.
Kafka Dev February 1st, 2017 at 19:29
Go Trump! I just wish he’d ship these liberals to Mexico before building the wall… still time I suppose.

Well it proves what I have said for years, we need to put some money in education. We have understaffed schools, and we need to hire professionals to help teachers reach these kids or we will have a country full of rump voters.

I hope that isn’t true. I know his past statements would lead us to believe he is a complete tool, but to not know who Frederick Douglas is would be too pathetic.

I happened to have had the good fortune of attending, K-12, the school system the federal government – specifically the Department of Defense – has for military dependents. About a dozen years ago Vanderbilt studied this system and found the same thing found in studies conducted in previous decades: that if they were all put into one school district, they would be the finest school system in the country.
These teachers are paid much more than public school teachers. Paying more, plus having better benefits – plus it counts for civil service – creates demand. The result is these schools get to hire the cream of the crop.
Once they get that government military school job, they don’t go anywhere else. It’s the last job any of them have.
Those teachers may move within the system, too. So they could go teach in Germany or Japan if they want to.
After funding, the next biggest thing the public school system needs is a social pressure on parents to train their children to behave, respect for others, their property, and authority.
When I was in school, every student in the school had P.E. every day and every day ran a half mile.
Suzanne McFly February 2nd, 2017 at 07:37
Those are all great ideas, what we have now proves our government doesn’t care about every child.

A 20% tariff on Mexican exports means that much is added to the price AFTER the item crosses the border into the American market for sale.
So,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,who is going to be paying for that wall again?
whatthe46 February 1st, 2017 at 20:24

Well, since it is a math problem, I hope he’s aware he can use a pencil and paper to work it out.

Ok , so we’ll get Clint Eastwood and Val Kilmer and Johnny Depp and some tough-looking black guy like maybe one of those rappers and an all-star cast to invade acroass the border with an exciting score by John Williams directing the Boston Pops.
They can charge the “federales”, who always flee like the cowards they are and our guys never miss, even getting the guy on the hotel balcony, who falls through the rail, over the porch roof and into the wagon below.
Never bet against Clint. He’ll make them pay for the wall.
We got this.

Are you kidding? Why would the drug cartels make things difficult for their best customer?
Tommie February 2nd, 2017 at 23:32
Trump can just go where we keep all the drugs that were “confiscated” from cartels in the Florida police stations since they keep getting busted for money laundering and selling drugs to the minority communities to sell for them!
granpa.usthai February 2nd, 2017 at 00:04
well, US troops might not get too far inside Mexico if the Chinese Army had training bases close to the border. It’s one thing to be a bully with someone who seems to be weaker, it’s F’ing stupid to do so to someone everyone else in the world considers to be as big -or bigger.
70 year old CRYBABY bully trump is no doubt stupid, but the US Military always has the option of getting ‘sore footies’.
