“The trade deficit of the USA with Mexico amounts to $ 60 billion. NAFTA was initially one-sided, we lost a huge number of jobs and companies. If Mexico doesn’t want to pay for much-needed wall, it is better to cancel the upcoming meeting”, — said the American leader.

Earlier January 26, Mexican President Enrique peña Nieto expressed his regret and condemned the signing of the American leader Donald trump decree on the construction of the wall on the border between the two countries. “I’ve talked about this many times: Mexico does not pay for any wall,” he said.

January 25 Donald trump has signed the decree about the protection of state borders, involving the construction of a wall on the border with Mexico. According to the President, the construction will begin soon and will initially be financed from the budget of the United States, however Mexico reimburses 100 percent of costs. “It will come at the expense of Mexico ( … ) and we will refund it at the expense of Mexico, as I always say” — promised the head of the White house.

Two days earlier, Reuters reported that trump also intends to sign a decree on the revision of the agreement on free trade in North America (NAFTA) concluded between the USA, Canada and Mexico.
