The intensifying feud between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has officially spilled over to Twitter. In spite of the surprisingly diplomatic nature of their meeting and press conference in Mexico City on Wednesday, the two men remain in glaring disagreement about who will foot the bill for Trump’s border wall between the two countries. When asked by reporters if they discussed payment for the wall in their closed-door meeting, Trump said no.
President Peña Nieto later claimed that he began the meeting by telling Trump, Mexico would never pay for it. During his big immigration speech that followed in Phoenix, Arizona, Trump declared to cheers from his supporters that “Mexico will pay for the wall. One hundred percent.” He then added, “They don’t know it yet, but they’re going to pay for it.” Trump tweeted the same message early Thursday morning, which has now prompted a direct response from Peña Nieto: “I repeat what I said personally, Mr. Trump: Mexico would never pay for a wall.”
Here is what is bothering me – a candidate for President is having a twitter war with the president of another country. Does this sound to you like something a presidential candidate should be involved in – feuding with the president of another country on Twitter? Donald Trump is the poorest excuse for the Oval Office. If Hillary Clinton was having a twitter war with any world leader the Republican’s would be all over the media and internet yelling about her poor, un- presidential behavior.
