Trump tweets show frustration over 'worst' NAFTA deal, border wall funding

Posted August 30, 2017

President Donald Trump on Sunday renewed his pledge to make Mexico pay for a border wall between the U.S and Mexico, days after threatening to trigger a government shutdown if congressional Republicans don't include funding as they take on a spending bill due September 30.

During his campaign, Trump repeatedly insisted that the multi-billion-dollar cost of the wall would be borne by Mexico, an idea scornfully dismissed by Mexican officials. At the same time, according to the report, he said, "If you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I can not live with that".

"Let's not forget that there were a lot of Democrat senators that also voted for border security and a border fence, and hopefully some of those same individuals will talk to members in their current party, and maybe we can get a bipartisan group to support that and make sure it happens because this president is going to see it through", she said. "It has to be a partnership, I have no doubt about that".

"With Mexico being one of the highest crime nations in the world, we must have THE WALL".

'We have offered the USA government all the help and cooperation that can be provided by the different Mexican governmental agencies to deal with the impacts of this natural disaster, as good neighbors should always do in times of difficulty'. "Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other", CNN reported.

"On this threat of the government shutdown if Congress doesn't secure funding for this wall, how is that not a concession from this White House that Mexico isn't actually going to pay for this wall and American taxpayers will?" a reporter asked.

Back in July, House Speaker Paul Ryan and other GOP leaders did discuss using a veterans bill as a vehicle to raise the debt ceiling. "Republican will win S!", Trump also tweeted on Sunday.

Trump tweeted on Sunday morning that NAFTA is the "worst trade deal ever made". Now he has threaten to shut down the government if Congress doesn't give him money to pay for the wall.

He made the vow during a rally in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday.

At Trump's instigation, the United States, Mexico and Canada began renegotiating the 23-year-old trade deal earlier this month.

The next round of negotiations is scheduled for Friday-Sept.
