Trump Boosts Wall Idea – Mexico Frustrated – World Watches

The World takes notice, New Zealand is following Trumps campaign follow through regarding not only the cancellation of TPP of which New Zealand was an active partner, but also the efforts on Trumps part to dominate and dictate to the US’s #2 trading partner, Mexico.

US President Donald Trump is about to speak after Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto informed the White House he has cancelled his trip to Washington.

The cancellation follows US President Donald Trump’s threat to force Mexico to pay for a border wall.

Trump said on Wednesday he would start building a US-Mexico border wall and vowed to make Mexico pay for it. Mexico opposes the wall and has repeatedly said it won’t pay for it.

The future of diplomacy is likely to be challenged as non diplomats take charge in Trumps State Department. Do business men make good statesmen? The jury is out.  Ambassadors for Peace are nervously watching.
