Before he became your president, many individuals who met Donald Trump labeled as ‘friendly,’ and even ‘affable.’ It’s quite different now that he is constantly searching for new ways in which to have his enormous ego stroked. He will constantly be criticized from every angle, and be forced to exchange in conversation with the leaders of the world, including those who are somewhat unfriendly to the United States. His tweets, and now statements by his sad press secretary, Sean Spicer, will offer preconceived ideas about Trump to other leaders long before actual meetings occur.
A meeting between Trump and Mexico’s President, Enrique Pena Nieto, has been canceled by the the leader of the Mexican nation. Remarks from Trump regarding his ‘great wall,’ virtually destroyed relations between our nation to the south.
To protect his fragile ego, and attempt to make himself appear superior, he told Republican leaders that it was a joint decision.
“I’ve said many times that the American people will not pay for the wall,” Trump told the gathering. “Unless Mexico is going to treat the United States fairly, with respect, such a meeting would be fruitless and I want to go a different route.”
The problem is that his lips were moving once again and therefore he was lying.
Yesterday hypocrite Paul Ryan admitted that the American taxpayer would be paying hundreds of billions of dollars for the sole purpose of allowing Trump to keep a campaign promise. He also claimed that there were ways to make Mexico pay for it later, but offered no specifics. Really? Is Ryan now offering “alternative facts?”
The following was Nieto’s actual statement regarding the cancellation of the summit.
“We have informed the White House that I will not attend the working meeting planned for next Tuesday with @POTUS,” he tweeted on Thursday. “Mexico reiterates its willingness to work with the United States to reach agreements that favor both nations.”
Look at ‘the fine mess you’ve gotten us into,’ Trump supporters.
