Mexican officials are running scared after President Trump placed a heavy hand on them regarding trade and the border.
However, Mexican foreign minister Jorge Castañeda is fighting back — except in a way that will be detrimental to the way of life of many Americans.
He threatened to allow the flow of drugs and violence to flow into the U.S. at a pace never seen before if Trump continues his hardline immigration policies.
“Mexico has a lot of negotiating chips in this matter, Fareed, but it also has measures we could take in other areas,” said Castañeda.
“For example, the drugs that come through Mexico from South America, or the drugs that are produced here in Mexico all go to the United States. This is not our problem. We have been cooperating with the United States for many years on these issues because they’ve asked us to and because we have a friendly, trustful relationship. If that relationship disappears, the reasons for cooperation also disappear.”
