We should know the outcome of Trump’s meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto today.
Reports on who initiated the meeting conflicted, but I think the only ones giving Trump credit were Trump’s people. The media seems to agree that Nieto invited Trump. Otherwise, why would Nieto host the orange buffoon who spews contempt for Mexico and Mexicans daily?
Mexico’s former president, Vincente Fox, told CNN that 130 million Mexicans don’t like Trump, don’t want him there, and reject his visit. He thinks current President Nieto will be considered a “traitor” if he’s perceived to go soft on Trump.
Not that Nieto has ever expressed any love for Trump. He knows Trump is pulling this publicity stunt to make himself look presidential and tough on Mexicans.
Trump is said to be bringing no reporters, but let’s hope the Mexican press fills the gap, and what goes down spreads worldwide in minutes. To recap the backstory…
Trump has called Mexicans drug dealers and rapists.
He wants to build a wall that he’ll force Mexico to pay billions for, to keep Mexicans out.
He wants to deport all Mexicans who are here illegally.
He wants to renegotiate NAFTA so Mexico gets a raw deal on trade.
And he thinks he’s going to wave his dick around today and show the world it’s bigger than Nieto’s.
Unless Nieto is an idiot, his welcoming party for Trump will be just short of a firing squad. He needs to verbally rip Trump to shreds with words that nobody can spin as “softness.”
It seems Mexico’s tit for tat with Russia in trying to influence our election. Hillary should be thrilled because Mexico has every reason to keep Trump out of the White House. Putin just wants a malleable sap he can control with flattery.
Let’s hope Nieto soundly rejects Trump’s wall, laughs in his face at redoing NAFTA, and defends his people.
This has potential to make Trump look like an even bigger idiot, reducing the cornerstones of his foreign policy to rubble.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Trump cancels his big speech — again.
When the proof of Mexico’s position is on film, what’s Trump going to say? That Nieto agreed with him? Give the world irrefutable proof of his pathological lying?
Nieto, this is your chance to strike a blow for your people and for Americans who have suffered Trump’s ignorant rants against Mexico for a year. Slap the lies and bluster out of him. Stay strong.
