Mexican official disputes reported Trump troops threat in call with Nieto


I should have known.

From Politico:
Mexico's foreign minister on Thursday disputed reports that President Donald Trump threatened to send American troops into the country during a call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto this week. 
“That is nothing close to reality," Luis Videgaray said in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper on Thursday. 
According to an excerpt obtained by the Associated Press on Wednesday, Trump told Peña Nieto that he had "a bunch of bad hombres down there," and that since he wasn't "doing enough to stop them," Trump "just might send [U.S. troops] down to take care of it." 
A CNN report, however, gave a diverging account of the conversation, where Trump reportedly told the Mexican president: 
"You have some pretty tough hombres in Mexico that you may need help with. We are willing to help with that big-league, but they have be knocked out and you have not done a good job knocking them out." 
Videgaray also dismissed a report by a Mexican journalist that Trump had "humiliated" Peña Nieto during an "aggressive" exchange between the two. 
“That’s plainly false,” he said. Videgaray said CNN's reporting was "certainly closer to reality,” and described the disputed conversation between world leaders as "constructive." 
“I was listening to the call, I was alongside the [Mexican] president and I can tell you it was a very good call," he said. "It was a constructive call. And the presidents agreed based on that call to continue working.”

Wow. I didn't know Oz also denied the leaks. I actually agreed with what he was supposed to have said to Australia. (though I couldn't figure out why he would brag to the leader of Australia lol)

They didn't deny the substance, they denied he was aggravated with Oz, he was shocked and pissed at Obama, which if you read Trump's tweet makes it pretty consistent. Oz was under pressure because they have 1000's of these people essentially jailed in comfort of some sort because they have very restrictive immigration laws. I have a feeling they were asking other allies to help them with this after the UN declared the situation of these people on islands ILLEGAL.

More evidence the UN and free societies are oil and water. If the people want sovereign states, and you also are an open society (internally) your enemy is the UN.
