Mexican President Nieto Joins #TheResistance UPDATED

Posted By: ZiLe Ohai - January 26, 2017

UPDATE: Trump always has to get the last word. Since Nieto canceled the meeting this morning, Trump is threatening 20 % tariff on Mexican imports. This of course would mean higher prices for consumers.  Mexico is America's second largest customer for the export of our goods. If they imposed a tariff on us in retaliation, which can be expected, once again it would be American citizens who suffer for it.


"Mexico offers and demands respect, as the fully sovereign Nation we are." said Mexican President, Pena Nieto on Twitter last night. To reinforce his statement, this morning he cancelled a meeting with Trump that was scheduled for next Tuesday.

Like many Americans, Nieto is pushing back at Trump's heavy handed, inept, attempts to force everyone to support his dystopian view of America as well as swallow his misinformation on immigrants and crime.

Trump must have thought that being a jackass aka "politically incorrect" would work in international relations. Apparantly not. Nieto clearly stated last year that Mexico would not pay for the wall and he hasn't changed his mind.

But naturally, after Nieto informed the White House that he would not be attending the meeting, Trump tweeted "If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting."

Gracias Presidente Nieto. ¡America te saluda!
