Tentative plans for Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to make his first visit to the White House to meet with President Trump were scuttled this week after a testy call between the two leaders ended in an impasse over Trumps promised border wall, according to U.S. and Mexican officials. Peña Nieto was eyeing an official trip to Washington this month or in early March, but called off the plan after Trump would not agree to publicly affirm Mexicos position that it would not fund construction of a border wall that the Mexican people widely consider offensive, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a confidential conversation.
Speaking by phone on Feb. 20, Peña Nieto and Trump devoted a considerable portion of their roughly 50-minute conversation to the wall, and neither man would compromise his position.

We do not need another Mexican in this country.
Mexico is realizing we have a real American in the White Hoise.
Politically, Mexico can’t pay for the wall. Politically, the administration can’t say that they won’t. Stalemate.
At least the White House staff won’t have to keep counting the silverware, or picking turds out of the trash.
And how did the WP know about the contents of a Presidential phone call unless someone had access to the information.
Sounds like someone is tapping phone calls again and feeding the info to the WP.
Last time I checked, this is a felony
this article made me happy.
“Mexicos position that it would not fund construction of a border wall that the Mexican people widely consider offensive,”
Good fences make good neighbors.
Tax remittances to Mexico
Mexico pays for the wall
Screw the bastards
Good they won’t have to check for missing silverware....
And how did Rucker, Partlow, Miroff acquire this information?
Methinks I see another swamp felony.
When the Mexican pipsqueak acts this way, President Trump ought to tell him that if he doesn’t pipe down, we are going to send 15,000,000 illegals back to Mexico by the end of his first term. No more billions of dollars flowing into Mexico from their wire transfers, Mexico’s biggest source of revenue. He just might act nicer after that threat sinks in.
Presidents don't make these phone calls alone, on either side. Someone in the room in the White House or in Mexico leaked. Or told someone who leaked. My money is that the leak came from south of the border. Looks better politically for Nieto Pena.
“”””” said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a confidential conversation”””””””””
So you are reporting on a confidential conversation. Sure, if you think so.
In a previous world we used to call that gossip.
my thoughts exactly
Trump should say “We’re going to start showing your border the same respect you show ours. The 4th Infantry Division will be rolling across for spring break.’
And what is he doing to thwart illegal immingeation in his own country vs his government’s assistence in aiding those who seek to illegally enter the US?
So I guess we need to proclaim your boy, Obama, as king forever and go on to skittles and unicorns, eh?
Read the article, both the US and Mexico state relations are BETTER than under Obama or Bush, and they are working together on all issues. That’s hidden in the article. PAYING for the wall just happens to be a hot potato issue. They agree on building it.
