Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto is tired of President Donald Trump’s renewed round of insults and threats to militarize the southern U.S. border this week, and he has launched a counter attack of his ownwith a scathing video message directed squarely at Trump.
“If your recent statements are the result of frustration due to domestic policy issues, to your laws or to your Congress, it is to them that you should turn to, not to Mexicans,” he said.
He wasn’t done. Answering Trump’s continued threats to get Mexico to pay for his long desired wall across the length of the southern border, President Peña Nieto looked dead into the camera and said, “Nothing and no one stands above the dignity of Mexico.”
“As Mexicans, we may disagree among ourselves, especially during election periods,” he said, “but we will always be united when it comes to defending our country’s dignity and sovereignty.”
