  • Trump Tweets demand for Mexico to pay for 'The Wall' – Mexico responds with offer of aid

Trump, a week into his presidency, indicated to Mexico's president Enrique Pena Nieto that he understood the Mexican government would not outright pay the U.S.to build a border wall.

The Mexican government said Sunday it will not negotiate trade agreements or any other aspect of its relationship with the USA over social media, following President Donald Trump's tweetstorm attacking Mexico on NAFTA negotiations and the country's rising drug violence.

OANN's Trey Yingst asked Trump if it's still his intention to get Mexico to pay for the wall.

Trump has asked for $1.6 billion to begin border wall construction, but not all congressional Republicans agree about the merits of a fight to spend potentially billions of dollars more on a border barrier as they seek for tax cuts.

"One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the wall".

The statement was a direct response to a sweeping series of tweets by President Donald Trump on August 27, in which he touched on NAFTA, the border wall and the Missouri Senate campaign amid updates on tropical storm Harvey off the southeast coast of Texas.

Manchester United 0-0 Leicester
Fellaini's goal was the sixth goal out of Manchester United's 10 so far this season that has come after the 80th minute. There was no goal , no desire, and they were lucky to have held on for so long without conceding.

The offer to help those impacted by what was Hurricane Harvey comes as Trump has blasted Mexico as one of the "highest crime nations in the world". Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other.

CBS notes that the president has not claimed that Mexico would pay for the wall since The Washington Post released transcripts of his January 27 phone call with Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Trump tweeted on Sunday morning that NAFTA is the "worst trade deal ever made". "This determination is not part of a Mexican negotiating strategy, but a principle of national sovereignty and dignity".

Mexico will not negotiate NAFTA, nor any other aspect of the bilateral relationship, through social media or any other news platform.

Mexico added that it offered any help needed to deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
