Trump Told Mexican Leader Wall Is ‘Least Important Thing’

By

The Washington Post published transcripts of President Trump’s Jan. 27 phone call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Jan. 28 phone call with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on Thursday, revealing startling insight into the president’s approach to negotiations. In speaking with Peña Nieto, Trump repeatedly asked the Mexican president to stop saying that Mexico won’t pay for the border wall. “You cannot say that to the press,” Trump said, although he seemed to acknowledge that the funding would “work out in the formula somehow.” Trump’s exchange with Turnbull was even more heated, as Trump vented about an Obama-era agreement to take 1,250 refugees from Australia. “This is going to kill me,” Trump said, deeming the conversation his “most unpleasant call all day.”
