Mexico Offers Help to Texas

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

Meanwhile, Canada doesn't seem to have issued an official response. He said the wall is needed to contain Mexico's worsening drug cartel violence, which has sent murder rates soaring to 20-year highs.

One leading House conservative said Friday that he could support a short-term bill to fund the government after September 30 and delay the fight over wall funding until December.

Having had enough of President Donald Trump's emphatic reiteration and boasts that it will eventually pay for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, the Mexican government said in a statement Sunday that it will not fund the said project "under any circumstances", Politico reports.

Trump has promised to build the border wall during his 2016 presidential bid.

It's hard to think of this as Trump's first national crisis of his presidency, since every single day feels like a new outlandish crisis of epic proportions. He wouldn't speculate on whether the president would veto a measure without it.

Will Alexis Sanchez fire Arsenal past Liverpool? Five Premier League talking points
Based on what we've seen so far, it will be no problem for Liverpool to get some goals in with this defence. Their blistering attack is another matter altogether, and against a creaky Arsenal defence should run riot.

"As we work with the Mexicans in other policies and trade policies and such, we'll determine ways for us to make that right", he said.

"I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall", Trump said.

The president said that "we are both in a little bit of a political bind" but that he knew the funding would work out "somehow" and "come out in the wash". Mexico fired back at the U.S. President's tweets with a strongly worded response where they claimed that NAFTA would not be negotiated over social media, Breitbart Texas reported.

In a statement dismissing Trump's twitter provocations, Mexico's foreign ministry said it would approach NAFTA negotiations in a "serious and constructive" manner.

Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott spoke by telephone on Sunday evening, the newspaper reported.

The president's tweet comes ahead of another round of trade negotiations with Mexico and Canada starting September 1 in Mexico City.
