Donald Trump’s Mexico Border Wall Plan Rebuked By ‘The Three Amigos’ At Summit

At the North American Leaders’ Summit, Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau and US president Barack Obama express their plans to unite North America, contrary to Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall keeping out Mexicans.

The “three amigos” rebuked Donald Trump’s Mexico border wall plan with many thinly-veiled comments aimed at the Republican nominee.

Barack Obama responded to Donald Trump without mentioning his name: “All too often we’re hearing rhetoric that ignores the enormous contributions that have been made by Mexican Americans and the enormous strengths we draw from the relationship,” Mr. Obama stated during the summit in Ottawa, Canada.

Donald Trump recently gave a speech with protectionism being the subject at matter. He spoke about his plans to renegotiate deals, including the North American Free Trade Agreement, which he feels puts the United States at a disadvantage.

Obama on the other hand, feels that cutting off the trade deals would make America poorer. The President also acknowledges the American people’s concern with globalization but doesn’t believe it’s the only cause of inequality among the middle class and working class Americans.

“Our auto plants, for example, would shut down if we did not have access to some parts in other parts of the world. We’d lose jobs, and the amount of disruption that would be involved would be enormous,” Mr. Obama said.
