US media reported about escalation of the conflict between US President Donald Trump and his Mexican counterpart Pena Nieto. It all started with the fact that Trump announced his intention to build a ‘blank wall’ on the US-Mexican border that caused resentment among ordinary Mexicans and representatives of the country’s authorities. In its turn, the reaction of official Mexico prompted questions in Washington.

Pentagon officials held a meeting with their Mexican counterparts on security issues. The main topic of the negotiations was obligations of official Mexico to provide security at the border at the Mexican side in order to prevent the entry of illegal immigrants and persons with criminal past and present in the US.

As the AP news agency reported, during a conversation between Trump and Nieto, the US President promised to send US troops to Mexico in case if the Mexican side does not take effective measures against a flow of illegal immigrants.

“You have a bunch of bad hombres down there,” AP quoted the Trump’s words. “You aren’t doing enough to stop them. I think your military is scared. Our military isn’t, so I just might send them down to take care of it.”

Meanwhile, Spokesman for Mexico’s presidential office, Eduardo Sanchez, also denied that the tone of the conversation was hostile or humiliating, and noted that it was respectful.

“It is absolutely false that the president of the United States threatened to send troops to Mexico,” Sanchez said in an interview with Radio Formula on Wednesday night.

The Mexican Foreign Relations Department also said that reports of US media did not correspond to the reality and were “based on absolute falsehoods,” and that the conversation between the presidents was held only in a “constructive and businesslike” manner.

    Trump should invade Northern Mexico and make a no go zone there along the border.

      That would provide needless hysteria everywhere I think. There’s no reason to deploy troops outside our borders. We should just use them to defend the border while on US soil. It’s the normal and sufficient way.

      • dutchnational

        Fully agreed.

      They could also give back southern USA to Mexico as they took it in 1848 and 1030 or so in case of Texas.

        Mexico cannot maintain effective rule over its people, its a retarded state.In fact, since 1846-48, USA who captured large parts of Mexico continue to occupy enormous Mexican territories, hoping that the Mexican people forgot or forgave US atrocities. California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Texas in fact belong to Mexico. In those days and up until 1945 the big powers dictated the Laws of war, now they do it cleverly and continue to dictate.
        These conquests were gained by USA in war defined as: Manifest Destiny”. Now USA ought to do justice to the Mexican people, pay compensation to the deprived defeated people whose descendants are in need of help, or rather annex the whole of Mexico make her one of the American States.

    Trump may be a bit crazy at times, But US units are now gathering around Fort Worth. Texan’s are still pissed off about what happened at the Alamo. :)

    LOL: “you have a bunch of bad hombres down there.” Knowing Trump, I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump did say that, and that Mexico is only denying such a talk to not look weak.

    Hello South Front. Are you starting a brand new fake news business?

    • Brandon Thompson

      Did you just read the title? Because they mention that Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department denied such exchanges. Or am I misunderstanding what you are implying? If so, sorry.

      • Freedom

        Most morons just read the titles

    • dutchnational

      I too think this is fake news or they did not understand the difference between to mexico or into mexico.

  • Brandon Thompson

    Oh, this will make Mexicans more riled up.

  • Fake news?
    Mexico has denied this.

  • AndresMX

    Actually would constitute an interesting move if he actually tried to do it. It would become a shooting practice for everybody, ha. Kinda, “shoot Bart Simpson”.

    Regardless of whether it’s fake news or not , the majority of Mexicans trying to get to America are economic migrants.Granted there are criminal elements exploiting the same routes and the economic migrants themselves. They are simply there because they need the money. American employers gladly employ them in agriculture and construction. These people risk their lives and work for less than minimum wage. They willingly do jobs most Americans are unwilling to do. The level of hypocrisy against such people from those that willingly employ them is mind boggling. Instead of corralling these people , allow the decent law abiding Mexicans in on temporary semi skilled and unskilled visas and find a way to keep the criminals out. If a Mexican is willing to go shoulders deep in American shit to unblock an American sewer line , find me an American willing to do the same for the same pay. These people are desperate , they will find illegal ways into the country and the very Americans railing against them will employ them. Barring all of them only pushes them into criminal hands to find illegal ways of entering. It will make the problem worse.
