Mexico is denying that its president recently called President Trump to compliment the White House’s immigration policy, saying Enrique Peña Nieto has not contacted Trump in weeks.
Trump earlier this week implied that Mexico’s president had praised the White House in a call for policies that lowered levels of illegal immigration on Mexico’s southern border.
“Even the president of Mexico called me,” Trump said at a Cabinet meeting. “They said their southern border, very few people are coming because they know they’re not going to get through our border, which is the ultimate compliment.”
