President Trump: We’re No Longer Going to Be the Country That Doesn’t Know What It’s Doing

President Trump declared the United Stated is “no longer going to be the country that doesn’t know what it’s doing.”

Fox News’ John Roberts asked President Trump about his call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto during his joint news conference with Prime Minister Theresa May.

“I will say that we had a very good call. I have been very strong on Mexico. I have great respect for Mexico. I love the Mexican people,” Trump told Roberts.

Trump went on to say: “As you know, Mexico with the United States has out-negotiated us and beat us to a pulp through our past leaders. They’ve made us look foolish. We have a trade deficit of $60 billion with Mexico. On top of that, the border is soft and weak, and drugs are pouring in. And I’m not going to let that happen.”

“The United States cannot continue to lose vast amounts of business, vast amounts of companies, and millions and millions of people losing their jobs. That won’t happen with me,” Trump declared. “We’re no longer going to be the country that doesn’t know what it’s doing. So we are going to renegotiate our trade deals, and we are going to renegotiate other aspects of our relationship with Mexico.”
