Trump Lies Again! Peña Nieto Says He Told Trump Mexico Wouldn’t Pay for “The Wall”

Unreal

Today in Donald Trump’s press conference after meeting privately with Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto, Trump was asked by a reporter about his frequent forceful statements that Mexico was going to pay for the ridiculous gigantic border wall he says he’s going to build. At every rally for the past year Trump has made a big deal out of this claim, screaming to his audience, “WHO’S GONNA PAY FOR THE WALL?” and the audience screams back, “MEXICO!” Then everybody laughs and cheers as if this is brilliant and not mind-bogglingly idiotic.

But today when he was asked about this, Trump said he had not even discussed payment for the wall with Peña Nieto. Which is absurd enough on its face, and makes him look like a complete coward, an Internet Tough Guy without the guts to say it to Peña Nieto’s face.

However — the truth is apparently even more ridiculous and cowardly, because now Reuters is reporting that Peña Nieto told Trump in their private meeting Mexico would not pay for the wall!

A translation of Peña Nieto’s tweet:

At the beginning of the conversation with Donald Trump, I made clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall.

And that means that Trump stood right there in that press conference and lied right to Peña Nieto’s face, and to the rest of the world as well, even though he had to know this was going to come out.

This is the Republican Party’s candidate for president of the United States, folks. It would be funny if it weren’t so disturbing.
