Transcripts Reveal Trump Begged Mexico’s President To Stop Saying He Wouldn’t Pay For The Wall [VIDEO]

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump made building a wall along the southern U.S. border and forcing Mexico to pay for it core pledges of his campaign. But in his first White House call with Mexico’s president, Trump described his vow to charge Mexico as a growing political problem, pressuring the Mexican leader to stop saying publicly that his government would never pay.

“You cannot say that to the press,” Trump said repeatedly, according to a transcript of the Jan. 27 call obtained by The Washington Post. Trump made clear that he realized the funding would have to come from other sources but threatened to cut off contact if Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto continued to make defiant statements.

The funding “will work out in the formula somehow,” Trump said, adding later that “it will come out in the wash, and that is okay.” But “if you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I cannot live with that.”

            It isn’t any mystery: rural counties are almost entirely WHITE (electorally, any way. They may have large #s of can’t-vote brown people to do the physical work).

          • Cucker “Dick” Tarlson

            Right!

            If you’re located in one of your top three or four largest cities (except those in the deep red states) you’re among mostly sane people.

            Hit the suburbs and you’ve got a mixed bag.

            Reach the small rural towns that either farm, used to be a manufacturing center, or are still there after the lumber or the mines gave out, and it’s some Stephen King shit.

    • vorpal 😼

      My message to Trump: stop saying stupid things, and maybe you won’t look so stupid.

        There’s that, but do remember that you cannot fix stupid.

      Is this how the “master deal maker” negotiates with everyone? Sounds like begging and whimpering to me. Did Trump at least offer to suck his c_ck?

  • Natty Enquirer

    Trying to run global affairs like a backroom NY real estate deal.

    • Smokey

      One would think that tRump and his staff would have learned that lesson by now – the office of the presidency is a very different game.

  • Gustav2

    Begging a foreign leader for help in a lie.

  • Look for the following in the near future:

    1) Trump denounces this story as “fake news from the failing Washington Post,” possibly insists that he and the President of Mexico have a great relationship.

    2) The President of Mexico, meanwhile, confirms that this is pretty much how their exchange took place.

    And this will mean nothing to the 33% that will support him no matter what. Same as the unforced lying about non-existent phone calls.

    if you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I cannot live with that.

    Our President is causing damage with long-time allies around the world. In this case he is telling the Mexican President that if he wont’ publicly back him on an outrageously offensive campaign rallying cry Trump created, that the US will distance itself from Mexico. Trump is a fucking disaster.

  • IAMBOWLINGGREEN

    Trump curtseyed for the king of Saudi Arabia, sold himself to Putin, and begged the President of Mexico to just go along with his lie about the wall. The art of the deal : Threaten, beg, lie, tweet, and repeat.

      You forgot: “brag I’m the best” … “claim only I can solve it” … “blame others for my failures” … “whine that I’m persecuted unfairly”

  • zhera

    Donnie: Low energy, weak, impotent, irrelevant.

    You think the Mexican President gives a shit about how this makes you look? You trashed all Mexicans, calling them rapists and ‘bad hombres’. You really thought that would make Mexico want to pay for your stupid wall?

    • Ray Taylor

      And he has no reason to like you Donnie.

    • boatboy_srq

      He actually called them “bad hambres”, which is somewhat different. And worse, in its way.

      • Octavio

        Uh,”hombres.” Hambre means hungry. 🙂

        • boatboy_srq

          Yes, it does.

          It’s still the word tRump used.

          • Octavio

            Seriously? Is that how the media reported it?

          • boatboy_srq

            No, but apparently their hearing is bad, because the phrasing is right there in the audio.

    • ColdCountry

      Of course he thought Mexico would pay for the wall, even after he bad-mouthed them. They’re Mexicans. They’re the hired help. People do as he says. Why won’t they do as he says? “DO AS I SAY! DO IT! DO IT! DO IT DO IT DO IT!!!! OK, I’m not playing with you any more. And that’s final! (Please do it?)”

  • Lumpy Gaga

    If it looks like a dope…

  • Rex

    Who’s the bigger dope?
    Trump for saying Mexico would pay for the wall or anyone who believed him.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    The story at the link indicates that the transcript of the call was classified, so this leak may be a bigger deal than some of the other things the press has gotten its hand on.

    • Hue-Man

      And if it was leaked from Mexico?

      • BobSF_94117

        War…

    • KarenAtFOH

      We classify too many things. What exactly needed to be classified about this transcript?

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        The embarrassment factor to Trump. An actual secret that could protect our military and lives (like positions of submarines)? Total fair game to blab to anyone.

    • Uncle Mark

      If one has no class…can they really classify anything?

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    “You cannot say that to the press,” — Yes, yes he can…and he did.

    “if you are going to say that Mexico is not going to pay for the wall, then I do not want to meet with you guys anymore because I cannot live with that.” — Please President Peña, please keep saying it.

    “This is going to kill me” — Donald, really, stop teasing us.

    “I look like a dope” — and this is news to who exactly?

    “This deal will make me look terrible” — Too late.

    I could go on, but there’s so many. Suffice to say, this really shows his cowardice and ineptitude in full bloom.

    Isn’t it https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b6d18b04a444da8845cd86dd0c84b253d1056d27c684f81b762de9ec8643f207.gif

    This is fucking hilarious and yet again shows up Trump as the pathological liar and cheat that he is!

    • Uncle Mark

      I have even more respect for the Mexican president, now. Seriously, how could he NOT have told Donnie to fuck off, broken into laughter, or shared this hilarious conversation with his people…let alone the world?

  • Rex

    Will Mexico at least pay for the Uber to take him away after he resigns?

    • zhera

      Maybe, if we ask nicely, Mexico will pay for a wall around the golf club tRump is going to tomorrow. It doesn’t have to be around the whole property either, just his bathroom will do.

        He did the same to Angela Merkel. Worse, even, when he patently refused to “hear” that someone asked him if he’d like to shake her hand for the photo-op. The man belongs in a ward for the mentally insane.

        The drugs that are troubling New Hampshire don’t come from Canada or Mexico; they come from Big Pharma. They created this addiction crisis by selling easy and cheap to make pain killers at a huge profit. That so many of those drugs were diverted to the underground market wasn’t even a consideration for them, much less a concern. As long as it boosted the numbers for the latest quarter and the stock price, who cares?

        • Octavio

          Speaking of which, I could really use some oxycontin right now. Tore my shoulder (real bad, too) yesterday trying to escape from a palm tree that grabbed me with its vicious thorns. AaaaOooooooooo! It fucking hurts! 🙁

          • canoebum

            Wow. You should see a doctor. But don’t go for oxy. It’s bad, bad stuff. Ordinary codeine is much safer (and cheaper) and allows you to still function fairly well.

          • vorpal 😼

            I’ve used tons of opioids for my Crohn’s, and while it was far from the least powerful, oxycodone was by far the most addictive, especially psychologically.

          • ColdCountry

            OwOwOw! But oxycontin is bad shit. I rely on medicinal marijuana, but then, all narcotics, even synthetic ones, give me “prolonged, serial vomiting,” as the doctor called it. That can suck, but I’ll never be an addict.

    • David Walker

      That’s his patented “Is this over? Why isn’t this over? Somebody make it stop. I’m president…why does this guy know? Can’t he speak United States, fer cryin’ out loud? Angela…he’s like Angela. They don’t understand” face.

    The transcripts are also plain evidence that Trump doesn’t understand what a leader of a country is. They don’t disappear or stop talking or start saying what you want on your say so. And, you can’t sue them into submission. You can war them into submission but war powers aren’t that easy to use either.

  • marshlc

    I’m trying to imagine an adult, someone who has dealt with other people out in the wide world and learned that not everybody loves you the way your mommy does, doing this.

    Vilifying someone for months, attacking them and their sense of worth, and then saying “You know I said I’d beat you up, so, hey, bro, do me a solid and back me up, OK? Tell everybody ‘Yeah, he’s going to beat me up’ so I don’t look bad. And hey, I know that will make everybody mad at you, but I won’t really beat you up, so it’s fine, right?”

    This is a master negotiator?

    I know his supporters will call this fake news if they even hear about it, but man, if it can be proven to be true, this is probably the worst blow because it strikes at the heart of the tough guy, fighter who fights back, image.

    And of course the mouth breathers over at Breitbart are screaming about the leak rather than the fact that their cult leader lied to them the whole campaign and then tried to strong arm the leader of a neighbor and ally into continuing the lie. What a world, what a world…..

    • Edmund Allin

      I never thought I’d say this, but while the transcript is delicious, I think the greater scandal is that a conversation between two heads of state was leaked.

      That being said, Trump chose his team, so that makes him reponsible, right? Buck stops with him, doesn’t it?

      Hey–Trump is on video saying that when it looks like he is going to lose, he whines and whines and whines until the other person gives him what he wants. Might work in business; doesn’t work in government. Sorry, Donnie.

    Donny this is what happens in the treal world your lies can kick you in the ass

  • FlKeysKevin

    These transcripts, along with the way he was manhandled by Macron in the handshakes and his ass-kissing of Putin, show that our Strongman President is, in actuality, the world’s bitch.

    • -M-

      They spoke to him like he was a rational adult, Putin treats him as the ignorant stupid rube he is.

  • denbear00

    That conversation was in January. There’s been a few since then. When do we get to read those transcripts? If this one can leak, any can.

  • Chaz Antonelli

    CALL AN ELECTION!!! Where’s the Governor General when we need him!!

  • SoCalGal20

    Wow, I see the leaks are just drying up! /s

    • edrex

      are phone transcripts public record?

  • pch1013

    Me, me, me, I, me, I, me, me, me, me, me, me, I, me, me, me.

    I can easily remember a time when ultra-cons bashed Obama for using the first-person singular excessively.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    “You mean all I had to do was click my heels three times and say “We’re not gonna pay for that fucking wall.”, and I would never have had to hear from him again? Why didn’t you tell me?”

    “You wouldn’t have believed me.”

  • RJ Bone

    Hey asshole, news flash. You don’t get to tell a foreign leader what to think or say and demand they do so. Wars have started for less.

  • Nic Peterson

    Why is [B]oy spelled like that. Could Donnie TwoScoops have used the word ‘Oy’ instead? That wouldn’t play too well with the white nationalist crowd, which appears to be the extent of his support.

    • edrex

      i was wondering abt that myself.

  • GeneInSJ

    Reading the transcript of his call with Turnbull was painful and embarrassing. What the world must think of us… 🙁

  • Lumpy Gaga

    “Donald, you’ve got a lot of e’splainin’ to do.”
    “Oh, Enrique…..!”

  • EdA

    Unfortunately I couldn’t get the clip to play.

    After this, most rational people would probably want to reconsider their approaches prior to shooting off their mouths or their twitter fingers. As I say, most -rational- people ….

  • Lumpy Gaga

    OMG WH staff misspelled “Nobel prize winning genius”. LOLz.

  • OdieDenCO

    HA!

  • Lumpy Gaga

    MT: With great respect, that is not right – It is not 2,000.
    DT: Well, it is close. I have also heard like 5,000 as well.

    JFC, he does this BS on phone calls with his counterparts?

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Look, I do not know how you got them to sign a deal like this, but that
    is how they lost the election. They said I had no way to 270 and I got
    306.

    Again – he pulls this utter unimpressive bullshit on phone calls with sharper shed tools???

  • Hue-Man

    Trump has been trashing Canada for dairy supply management, softwood lumber, and other trade issues. But in these same transcripts:

    Pena Nieto encouraged a more positive discussion: He supposedly urged Trump to focus on the fact that the three NAFTA countries could negotiate a new trade framework. That prompted a rejoinder from the president.

    “Canada is no problem,” Trump replied, according to the leaked transcript.

    “Do not worry about Canada, do not even think about them. That is a separate thing and they are fine and we have had a very fair relationship with Canada. It has been much more balanced and much more fair. So we do not have to worry about Canada, we do not even think about them.”

    Foreign governments don’t know which version of Donald Trump is going to show up!

    • billbear1961

      Incredible!

      No, they don’t, but what they SHOULD know, by now, is they can place no confidence in ANYTHING he says!

      EDIT: It’s a farce–an intolerable one!

    • billbear1961

      Thanks for this, Hue!

  • Lumpy Gaga

    LOLz!!!!!

    DT: Okay, good. Can Australia give me a guarantee that
    if we have any problems – you know that is what they said about the
    Boston bombers. They said they were wonderful young men.

    MT:They were Russians. They were not from any of these countries.

    DT: They were from wherever they were.

    Oh dear FSM, make it stop. Too funny.

  • GanymedeRenard

    This conversation almost makes President Peña Nieto seem like at some point he’ll say to Trump, “Now, who’s your daddy?”

    • coram nobis

      Or “Tu eres un payaso, Donaldo. Nada más.”

      • GanymedeRenard

        Y un mal payaso, además.

    The former president of Mexico had a message to Donald regarding the wall and its payment.

      I was going to add this to my post, below. Glad you still like it enough to toss it at Hair Drumpf, whenever, “the Wall” is brought up!!!

    • infmom

      The problem is that that hilariouis clip runs way too long for President Dimwit to sit through.

  • billbear1961

    One of the stories on Political Wire today, for members only, is that Trump has a serious leak problem.

    Hahahahaha!

    No kidding!

  • coram nobis

    He’s so self-absorbed. Would FDR have said that the night after Pearl Harbor? “I look like a dope?” “Boy, this will make me look bad?” “This puts me in a bad position?”

    Yes, Donald, you do look like a dope.

  • Wow. What a weak, pathetic, self-centered little baby-man. Reduced to abject begging.

  • thatotherjean

    Pro tip, Donnie: If you don’t want to be caught lying, don’t lie.

    PS: Yeah, you look like a dope.

    • FelineMama

      Yea, he looks like a Dope & doesn’t really have to try at it, no?? If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck ……………………………………………..!

  • Subtext to this: There are people in positions of access and authority who seem pretty clearly to want Donald gone.

    • FelineMama

      Oh, Tru Dat. I’m curiouser & curiouser to who is the “leaker”.

  • Davester

    I’m glad the war on leaks is going so well…

  • infmom

    So…this master negotiator’s primary tactic is to whine that the other person will make him look bad?! Huh?!! (I’m shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you, that the emperor has no clothes.)

  • That_Looks_Delicious

    If the WaPo got a hold of a transcript of the phone call, that means that either somebody high up in the Mexican government released it or somebody in the White House leaked it.

    I suppose a third possibility is that some intelligence agency intercepted the call and gave it to the WaPo, but that seems like going nuclear for relatively little payoff. You’d think that if the intelligence community was at that point with Trump, they’d keep their powder dry for a prosecutable occasion.

    I really doubt it came from the Mexicans, because that would mean that relations between the two countries are so extremely deteriorated that there is nothing left to salvage. While I’m sure lots and lots of people in Mexico despise Trump, governments never release the transcripts of phone calls between leaders because it makes future frank discussions impossible.

    That means that somebody inside the White House gave the transcript to the WaPo, which means that Kelly has not been able to even put a dent into the Game of Thrones Red Wedding that is the current WH.
