Mexican President Fact Checks Donald Trump To His Face, In Spanish

Peña Nieto told Trump Mexico would not pay for border wall

Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto told Donald Trump during their private meeting today that Mexico would not pay for Trump’s proposed 2,000-mile barrier along the US-Mexico border, according to his Twitter feed.

Enrique Peña Nieto ✔ @EPN
Al inicio de la conversación con Donald Trump dejé claro que México no pagará por el muro.
3:51 PM - 31 Aug 2016

Translation: At the beginning of the conversation with Donald Trump
I made it clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall.”

Peña Nieto followed up, declaring that “From there, the conversation addressed other issues, and followed in a respectful manner.”



Trump told reporters after the meeting that although the wall had been discussed,
payment for the wall had not.



Trump whimps out in Mexico: "We didn’t discuss payment of the wall. That’ll be for a later date."

as mr pete says, he didn't pull down his pants and shit on the floor so the media is saying "He's being respectful"



Trump website claims it's an "easy decision" for Mexico to pay for wall.
Now says they didn't even discuss it?!


Rep. Linda Sanchez: ‘You cannot get your hands on a Trump piñata because they are sold out’

“It is not leadership to demonize a community, to bash them verbally, to use venomous rhetoric to incite people sometimes to violence against a community,” Sanchez remarked. “And then accept an invitation and somehow think that everything is going to be forgiven.”

“I just want to warn the GOP of one thing,” the California Democrat said. “In Los Angeles County — and I don’t know what polls you’re looking at, sir — but in L.A. County, you cannot get your hands on a Trump piñata because they are sold out and they’re on back order. And for every child that has taken a whack at a Trump piñata, that’s a voter that the GOP has lost for a lifetime. They are not going to forget that.”


Vicente Fox: ‘I really apologize for Trump’s Mexico visit-Trump Using Mexico to push sinking polls'

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto “is taking an enormous political risk” by hosting Donald Trump in Mexico City on Wednesday, former President Vicente Fox said, decrying the Republican nominee’s visit as “opportunistic” and a “political stunt” while apologizing on behalf of the country for the president’s invitation.

“Trump is using Mexico, is using President Peña to push his sinking poll numbers,” Fox said in an interview with CNN’s “New Day” hours ahead of the scheduled meeting in the Mexican capital.

If Peña Nieto is seen as “going soft” on the businessman, Fox warned, “it will hurt him greatly.”

“He will even be considered like a traitor because we don’t accept to be offended,” he added, remarking, “I think this is a big mistake on the part of President Peña.”

Fox rejected the notion that the trip could improve the standing of either Trump or the sitting Mexican president among Mexicans.

Several times lately I have tried to remember my time in middle school, did I like all my teachers, do I even remember them? Did I have many friends? Did I sit with anyone at lunch? Just how mean were kids really? I remember one kid on the bus called me "Tammy Fay Baker" bc I started awkwardly wearing eye liner in the sixth grade, I remember being tough and calling him a silly name back, but when he couldn't see me anymore I cried. I do remember middle school being scary, and hard. Now that I have a child starting middle school, I have feelings of anxiety for him, and they can be overwhelming if I let them. Sometimes I'm grateful for his autism. That may sound like a terrible thing to say, but in some ways I think, I hope, it shields him. He doesn't seem to notice when people stare at him when he flaps his hands. He doesn't seem to notice that he doesn't get invited to birthday parties anymore. And he doesn't seem to mind if he eats lunch alone. It's one of my daily questions for him. Was there a time today you felt sad? Who did you eat lunch with today? Sometimes the answer is a classmate, but most days it's nobody. Those are the days I feel sad for him, but he doesn't seem to mind. He is a super sweet child, who always has a smile and hug for everyone he meets. A friend of mine sent this beautiful picture to me today and when I saw it with the caption "Travis Rudolph is eating lunch with your son" I replied "who is that?" He said "FSU football player", then I had tears streaming down my face. Travis Rudolph, a wide receiver at Florida State, and several other FSU players visited my sons school today. I'm not sure what exactly made this incredibly kind man share a lunch table with my son, but I'm happy to say that it will not soon be forgotten. This is one day I didn't have to worry if my sweet boy ate lunch alone, because he sat across from someone who is a hero in many eyes. Travis Rudolph thank you so much, you made this momma exceedingly happy, and have made us fans for life!
