“The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico.

“It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with massive numbers… of jobs and companies lost.

“If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting,” Trump said on Twitter

NAN reports that Mexico’s foreign minister Luis Videgaray said on Wednesday that in spite of pressure at home to scrap a summit between Trump and Nieto fixed for Tuesday, Jan. 31, “it is still on for now”.

Trump had signed new executive orders, including one authorizing a wall on the U.S. southern border, just as a Mexican delegation led by Videgaray arrived at the White House for talks.

“The meeting between the two presidents in Washington next Tuesday is still confirmed,” Videgaray said.

“The meeting, for now, is going forward,” he said.
