Another day, another bombshell concerning the Trump administration. The Washington Post reports that Donald Trump urged Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to stop publicly saying his country will not pay for the US-Mexico border wall during their Jan. 2017 phone call.
Washington Post: “You cannot say that to the press,” Trump said repeatedly, according to a transcript of the Jan. 27 call obtained by The Washington Post. Trump made clear that he realized the funding would have to come from other sources but threatened to cut off contact if Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto continued to make defiant statements.
The funding “will work out in the formula somehow,” Trump said, adding later that “it will come out in the wash, and that is okay.” But “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 cannot live with that.”
Trump wanted Pena Nieto to help him continue scamming his supporters about his border wall fantasy. He clearly knew Mexico was never going to pay for the wall when he first proposed it. There’s a reason why he said he loves the poorly educated.
Trump also dissed New Hampshire during the call:
“We have a massive drug problem where kids are becoming addicted to drugs because the drugs are being sold for less money than candy,” Trump said. “I won New Hampshire because New Hampshire is a drug-infested den.”
He described Mexican drug cartel leaders as “pretty tough hombres” and promised U.S. military support, saying that “maybe your military is afraid of them, but our military is not.”
By the way, he didn’t win New Hampshire in the presidential election. Hillary Clinton did. Imagine a president denigrating a state to a foreign leader? Our heads would still be spinning if Barack Obama had done that. The Republicans would be drawing up impeachment papers.
Ladies and gentlemen, this travesty of a presidency continues to intensify. It will take a very long time for America to rise from the ashes of this shitshow. Someone in the White House or someone with access to classified information is leaking this stuff to warn America of the trouble we are in because a lunatic has access to nuclear codes.
