Everybody knows about Donald Trump’s infamous plan of building the border wall. The president-elect said that he wants Mexican citizens to pay for it too. Now, Mexican president, Enrique Peña Nieto, weighs on the matter.
On Wednesday, at an annual gathering at the National palace, the president said his opinion on Trump and his wall. Although he wants to have a peaceful and constructive relationship with the future president of the United States, Nieto does not want his citizens to pay for the wall.
The president said that Mexico still has some issues with the new American administration. “We have some differences, like the topic of the wall, that Mexico of course will not pay,” declared Nieto.
According to reports, in the Congress session, he said that he wants the American taxpayers to pay for the wall and not Mexicans. On Wednesday, though, Trump denied the rumors. “Oh, Mexico is not going to pay for the wall because of a reimbursement. I want to get the wall started,” said Trump.
Trump’s plans are pretty clear, he wants to start building the wall as fast as possible. At first, money will come from the US citizens and Mexico will reimburse after.
The president-elect said that negotiations with Mexico will start as soon as he gets to the White House. Many officials believe Trump will succeed in convincing them to pay for the wall.
Last year, during the electoral campaign, Trump met with the Mexican president to discuss on the topic, after, he declared that Mexicans will pay for it, even if they do not know of it just yet.
Although things are not clear yet, there is a huge possibility that the Mexicans will be convinced. Whether they accept or not, the wall will still be build.
