BREAKING: Mexican President Nieto Calls Trump’s Bluff, Cancels Meeting

Oh, Mexico! This is what happens when dealmaking President Donald Trump trades shots with foreign leaders who hold a better hand than him. They call him on it and claim the pot.

Trump insisted that Mexico will pay for the wall, then he authorized it with American taxpayer money. Speaker Ryan obliged that American taxpayers will pay. Then Mexican President Pena Nieto publicly condemned the wall, and reiterated his country will not pay for it.

“I regret and reject the decision of the U.S. to build the wall,” Nieto said in a nationally televised address. “I have said it over and over again. Mexico will not pay for any wall,”

That led Trump to threaten to cancel his meeting with Nieto.

Bet, raise, call. Pot to Nieto.
