Mexico has insisted it won’t fund Trump’s border wall in response to the president’s tweets that claimed he would force the country to fund it.
While devastating flooding from Hurricane Harvey swept through Texas, Trump turned his attention a bit south of the Lone Star State on Sunday.

Trump accused Mexico of being ‘very difficult’ at the negotiating table over the North American Free Trade Agreement, and threatening anew to terminate the deal.
He added: ‘With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL. Mexico will pay for it through reimbursement/other.’
Mexico hit back in a fiery response, saying it would ‘not pay, under any circumstances, for a wall’ before offering support to Texans hurt by the hurricane.
Trump maintained on Sunday morning that Mexico would pay for the wall in some form, adding that it was necessary due to the country’s high crime rates.
