NASHVILLE, Tenn. – President Donald Trump insisted anew on Tuesday May 29, that Mexico will pay for his proposed border wall and “enjoy it” as he tied Republican success in the November midterm elections to a continued focus on illegal immigration and border security.
Democrats are “bad at everything, but they’re good at sticking together” in Congress, Trump said as he campaigned for Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.
“In the end, Mexico is going to pay for the wall,” Trump said. “I’m telling you. I don’t want to cause any problem, but in the end Mexico is going to pay for the wall.”
Trump implied that Mexico is making concessions in the ongoing negotiations over continuation of the North American Free Trade Agreement but gave no details.
“They’re going to pay for the wall and they’re going to enjoy it,” Trump said.
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto responded late Tuesday by repeating that his country will “never” pay for the border wall. “President @realDonaldTrump: NO. Mexico will NEVER pay for a wall. Not now, not ever. Sincerely, Mexico,” Peña Nieto said on Twitter, according to Reuters.
In Tennessee, which went for Trump by 26 points in 2016, Blackburn is strongly emphasizing her support for Trump as she battles former Democratic governor Phil Bredesen to succeed Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn.
The crowd booed when Trump mentioned Corker, a sometime critic of Trump’s who is retiring.
