Immediately after Mexico City suffered a massive earthquake — which has left over 250 dead — liberals decided to jeer President Donald Trump for “not doing anything” to help our neighboring country.
However, Trump’s latest action proved them dead wrong.
On Thursday, the president spoke with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, extending his condolences for the lives lost and damage caused by yesterday’s earthquake in central Mexico.
Then, despite all the drama between the nations, from immigration to NAFTA, Trump put the differences aside and offered an olive branch in the form of assistance and search-and-rescue teams.
Nieto accepted and the U.S. is deployed these teams now.
The President also pledged to continue close coordination with Mexico as the two countries respond to the recent earthquakes and hurricanes.
More than 250 people, including 21 schoolchildren, are dead after a magnitude 7.1 earthquake rocked central Mexico on Tuesday afternoon.

Yesterday’s earthquake was centered about 75 miles southeast of Mexico City and caused extensive damage, leveling at least 44 buildings, including homes, schools and office buildings, according to Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, who did a flyover of the city Tuesday afternoon.
Among the dead are at least 25 people — 21 students and four teachers — at a collapsed primary school in the south of the capital. So far, 11 people have been rescued, but two students and one teacher remain missing, according to Education Minister Aurelio Nuno.
In Mexico City alone, 52 people have been rescued from damaged buildings, according to city officials.
