In one of the most emblematic moments in the political campaign for 2016 elections, Trump accepted Pena Nieto’s offer to a meet in Mexico City.
In the meeting, Trump surprisingly declared the admiration and empathy he feels for the Mexican-Americans. According to NBC news Trump stated “I happen to have a tremendous feeling for Mexican-Americans, not only in terms of friendships but in terms of the tremendous numbers that I employ in the United States—and they are amazing people.”
This came as a surprise for both Mexican people and Pena Nieto himself, since Trump has been continuously attacking Mexican immigrants back in United States.
In the end, Trump declared that the construction of the wall was not brought up. However later in the evening Pena Nieto declared in his Twitter that the topic was discussed and that Mexico would never pay for such a wall.
