"As we have done in the past, Mexico stands with Texas in this hard moment", Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, the Mexican consul general in Austin, said.
President Trump accused Canada and Mexico of being "very difficult" in renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement and threatened anew to terminate the deal yesterday - an ominous or hopeful prospect for companies and investors, depending on the sector.
Trump tweeted Sunday morning that Mexico - and NAFTA partner Canada - was being "very difficult" in trilateral negotiations to update NAFTA, which began earlier this month and are set to resume in Mexico City in September.
"I think we'll end up probably terminating NAFTA at some point".
Trump then turned to Niinistö and said, "I guarantee you, Mr. President, Finland would never have signed NAFTA with Russian Federation or whoever you wanted to".
In 2005, Mexican troops marched across the USA and Mexico border to head to San Antonio for the first time since 1836, when the infamous massacre of the Alamo took place. He says the project may be funded by the United States, but "ultimately" Mexico will pay.
He predicted a border wall will "stop much of the drugs" flowing into the US from Mexico.
Trump also used Twitter on Sunday to press the need for his promised wall on the U.S. southern border.
Half a year into his presidency, we are better learning the brinkmanship tendencies that Trump has.
With Mexico refusing to pay, Trump has said since taking office in January that the wall will initially need United States funding but that he will find a way to make Mexico ultimately pay for it. He also suggested he would follow through on previous threats to pull the USA out of the trade pact he called the "worst deal ever made".
He says it was the one to lay out the roadmap for the next several rounds and he expects the next round to see some specifics coming out of the negotiations.
In July, leaked transcripts of a January phone call showed that Trump told his Mexican counterpart, Enrique Peña Nieto, his promise that Mexico would pay was merely a political move. "This determination is not part of a Mexican negotiating strategy, but a principle of national sovereignty and dignity", the statement said. "We need the wall, it's imperative".
This statement came not long after a tweet in which Trump claimed Mexico would pay for the wall and described it as "one of the highest crime Nations in the world".
