Mexico Says It Won't Renegotiate NAFTA With President Trump Via Twitter

Sen. Kamala Harris D-Calif. speaks during the Women's March on Washington Saturday Jan. 21 2017 in Washington

Canada and Mexico both signaled that they would proceed with the negotiations as planned.

As reported by the Inquisitr, Trump insisted through Twitter that Mexico will pay for the wall "through reimbursement/other".

Trump tweeted Sunday morning that Mexico - and NAFTA partner Canada - was being "very difficult" in trilateral negotiations to update NAFTA, which began earlier this month and are set to resume in Mexico City in September.

August 27's tweet was the first time though that Trump has complained about Canada's role in the talks, which began earlier this month between Canada, the United States and Mexico. The White House later appeared to soften its tone and shifted its focus to renegotiating the deal, helping send the peso up more than 15% against the dollar this year.

Mr. Trudeau had recalled that he himself had had with Donald Trump conversations where the latter had threatened to torpedo the agreement.

It's not the first time Mexico has stepped up to help the U.S.in the wake of a natural disaster.

Following up his initial question, the reporter asked that why, if Mexico was ultimately going to pay for the wall, would the USA close down its government over the funding - or lack thereof - of the wall.

Trump said last week the wall is worth a government shutdown, a claim he repeated Monday. "A wall alone can not stop the flow of drugs into the United States", Christopher Wilson, the deputy director of the Mexico Institute at the Wilson Center, recently told Vox.

As if he didn't have other things to worry about, President Donald Trump on Sunday asserted yet again that Mexico will pay for a wall along the United States and Mexico border.

"We need to prepare for what we would do if NAFTA isn't there", said Hoback.

"But he's not saying that Mexico is going to pay for it now", one reporter said.

Craig Hill, the president of Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, said it makes sense to take a new look at NAFTA, but it would be "hazardous" and "fruitless to renege on our obligations". On Monday, Trump again said the US may need to at least start the process of terminating NAFTA before it can reach a desirable deal.

Later, Trump reiterated his position that Mexico should ultimately pay for the border wall, even if Congress provides the initial funding and the United States is later reimbursed. "Only with a base of principles of shared responsibility, working as a team and mutual confidence, will we be able to meet this challenge".
