    Joint Statement on U.S.-Mexico Relations
    The United States President Donald J. Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto spoke by phone this morning for an hour. The call was mutually arranged by their teams.

    The two had a productive and constructive call regarding the bilateral relationship between the two countries, the current trade deficit the United States has with Mexico, the importance of the friendship between the two nations, and the need for the two nations to work together to stop drug cartels, drug trafficking and illegal guns and arms sales.

    With respect to payment for the border wall, both presidents recognize their clear and very public differences of positions on this issue but have agreed to work these differences out as part of a comprehensive discussion on all aspects of the bilateral relationship.

    Both presidents have instructed their teams to continue the dialogue to strengthen this important strategic and economic relationship in a constructive way.

    Jesus, I can't believe that the Mexican team accepted this statement.

    The only one who loses in any hard line on Mexico from the US is Mexico. They know it. Their pride may not met them acknowledge it, but they know it. I'm down there every few months and it's very clear how much they need the US.

    Like this? No no.
    Now I understand why my Mexican friends tell me that Nieto is a corrupt imbecile (I have no personal judgment).

    The wall does not stop trade; it prevents illegal aliens from illegally sneaking into our country.

    NAFTA stops trade; well, it actually creates a one-way vacuum sucking American jobs to Mexico. Once Trump smashes NAFTA trade can resume on an equitable level.

    The wall + deportation + less illegals takes away their number one resource.

    When the biggest bully of a country on earth is telling you what to do, usually you don't say no.

    based on what we know about trump, he probably bragged about winning the election for 55 minutes, and about policy for 5 minutes at the end.

    Meh, I think that Nieto is having serious problems at home, and Carlos Slim didn't help for sure.

    ahahah, now I give you that this is quite a possible scenario.
