"Al incinio de la conversación con Donald Trump dejé claro de México no pagará por el muro."
Translation: "At the beginning of the conversation with Donald Trump I made it quite clear that Mexico would not pay for the wall."
- President Enrique Peña Nieto, Mexico City (August 31, 2016)
So basically, President Peña Nieto has now called out Trump publicly as a liar, by personally contradicting Trump's claim to the media that they didn't discuss the proposed wall.
Mrs. Clinton need only sit back today, while her opponent screws himself.
A meme is born.
So I had a very open and constructive discussion with Mr. Donald Trump. The objective of this meeting was to meet each other and to know about the bilateral relations. As far as commercial issues, I shared with Mr. Trump my conviction that the free trade of North America has done a lot of good to both the U.S. as well as Mexico. U.S. exports to Mexico are close to $200 billion a year. And according to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, more than six million jobs in the U.S. rely on the exports to Mexico.
I heard HE shared blah blah .....
Honestly, where'd MSNBC find this guy? I think they just asked their people on the ground in Mexico City if someone spoke Spanish, he held up his hand and said that he took two years of it in high school, and they responded, "Cool, you're the man."
One of the previews was for the sci fi movie Arrival. Of course I'll need to see that but, based on the trailer, it looks like a movie I've already seen several versions of...
Aliens show up in mysterious hovering spaceships and one super smart scientist will figure out how to talk to them or kill them or whatever is needed. A tried and true Hollywood formula I can't resist.
I also finished Stranger Things last week. Any other good sci fi/ suspense dramas out there? I couldn't get into Mr. Robot.
