Based on what happened Wednesday, when GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump traveled to Mexico and held a joint news briefing with the nation’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, one could argue that the billionaire candidate has won.
During the briefing, Peña Nieto lauded Trump for his “genuine interest” in “build(ing) a relationship that might lead us to prove both our societies better conditions,” according to The Washington Times.
He also admitted that the North American Free Trade Agreement needs to be improved, the porous border must be secured and, more importantly, criminals have indeed been taking advantage of the weak border to transport guns, drugs, slaves and money between Mexico and the United States, as Trump has long argued.
So despite President Barack Obama, Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton and the liberal media claiming nonstop how Trump’s candid rhetoric about illegal immigration would irrevocably harm our relationship with Mexico, it appeared that the relationship was just fine and dandy.
Moreover, the fact that Nieto conceded nearly every one of Trump’s points demonstrated that his tough-talking method of international diplomacy possessed more merit and future potential than Obama’s deliriously pitiful “do with me as you like” strategy of appeasement.
The Mexican president also reportedly took direct shots at Obama by complaining about the guns that were smuggled into his country during Operation Fast and Furious — and also scolding him for having ostensibly erected a “welcome” sign over the border that, incidentally enough, has spurred problems in Mexico as well as the U.S.
