New Clinton attack ad: 'Trump's embarrassment in Mexico' (The Briefing)

Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto met with U.S. Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump this week to discuss immigration policy, and he did not like what he heard.

In an interview with Denise Maerker on Televisa, Mexico’s President made his position clear.

“I say here today very clearly and very publicly, what the candidate Trump knows, I was emphatic in pointing out that Mexico would not pay in any way for the wall.”

Trump, however, left the meeting with his own ideas, tweeting out what seemed to be his own conclusions about the borer wall.

He went on to say that the policy ideas Trump has put forward represent a “threat” to the country.

“As President I have a unique responsibility, which is to care for Mexicans and fight for Mexico,” he said. “Perhaps for the first time in the history of the electoral campaign in the United States, Mexico is part of the debate and there have been positions that quite frankly pose a threat and a danger to Mexico.”
