US, Mexico Deny Trump Threatened to Send Troops Across Border

03 February 2017

President Trump is reportedly willing to lend Mexico a hand with all its "bad hombres".by sending US troops down there.

A few hours before the statement from the Mexican government was released, the AP and a Mexican news website called Aristegui Noticias reported that Trump had mentioned the possibility of sending USA troops to Mexico to stop "bad hombres down there". "He even complained of the bad role the [Mexican] army is playing in the fight against narco trafficking", and suggested that if Mexico could not handle its drug problem, the US would send its military to do the job for them. But the newspaper report described Mr. Trump as humiliating Mr. Pena Nieto in a confrontational conversation.

The statement "did not happen during that call", the Mexican government said on Twitter.

Mexico's foreign relations department also weighed in, saying that the report is "based on absolute falsehoods" and "do not correspond to the reality at all".

In a discrepancy, CNN, which also obtained a copy of an excerpt of the call, reported that Trump threatened to stop Mexico's "pretty tough hombres".

New Mexico Land Commissioner Aubrey Dunn is proposing a federal land swap in order to make room for President Donald Trump's promised border wall.

A person with access to the official transcript of the phone call provided only that portion of the conversation to The Associated Press.

Former New York City FC midfielder Frank Lampard announces retirement
Although he didn't have as much success for country as he did for club, Lampard earned 106 caps for the Three Lions over 15 years. Swansea City head coach Paul Clement has revealed he tried to tempt Frank Lampard to the Liberty Stadium before his retirement.

According to the excerpt, Trump told Pena Nieto, "You have a bunch of bad hombres down there". You aren't doing enough to stop them.

Trump reportedly ended the call abruptly because he was unhappy.

Lest we forget, the not the only player in the zany, rake-stomping farce that is the Donald Trump administration.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has not commented on the conversation, but the Washington Post says Trump is calling that Obama agreement the "worst deal ever".

If confirmed, the report would contradict the tone of the conversation that was reported in near identical statements issued by the two governments last Friday.

"You put soldiers on that line", said Trump in 2011.

"I know it sounds insane, but it doesn't sound completely out of character", Hope said, noting Trump's provocations of other world leaders and his frequent attacks on Mexico.
