Weather problematic for recovery efforts
Robert: It's pretty clear the context of how the conversation went and how both Trump and Nieto can be right and why neither of them bothered to correct the other. The Mexican president tried to open strong and firm about the wall payment, while Trump likely refused to talk about it. Why should he talk about how the wall will be paid for or what Mexico thinks of it? Mexico's input is worthless on this topic because they will not have a choice in the matter. There are plenty of methods that the US can do through taxation and tariffs that do not need Mexico's permission, which Trump made very clear in the beginning of his campaign. Even indirect methods like the money saved from our welfare state not supporting so many illegals technically count toward Mexico paying for it.
