Trump returned from his first foreign policy trip, yesterday, with no major announcements. He said the wall was not discussed.
But Nieto quickly countered his claims. He insisted that Trump’s proposed wall along the Mexican border was discussed–and rejected.
In a stinging rebuke, Nieto said he made it clear to Trump that Mexico would not pay for the wall under any circumstances.
Trump was clearly upstaged and showed his anger by flip-flopping on his immigration policy again. He toughened his language and vowed to deport 11 million supposedly illegal immigrants.
He also said there would be no amnesty. Trump announced Tuesday a federal anti-terrorism surveillance law will be used to force Mexico to pay for the border wall, according to CNN.
Trump was greeted in Mexico by rancorous crowds, who protested his broad characterization of them as rapists and criminals. His trip clearly soured relations with the nation’s closest neighbors.
On the heels of his setback, the Clinton campaign rolled out a new attack ad yesterday titled “Donald Trump’s Immigration Ink Blot.”
The ad has a double meaning. It slams Trump for his inflammatory immigration flip-flops and questions his mental stability by featuring an animated Rorschach test.
The test is often used by psychologists and psychiatrists to get an understanding of mentally disturbed individuals.
Eerily, one inkblot looked like Russia’s ancient imperial symbol, the double-headed eagle.
