#1 But Pena Nieto said Friday that he had "never done any finger-pointing" about a U.S. candidate and that his March remarks were "taken out of context."

"I added 'with all due respect', so you can't hold it against me"

#2 Pena Nieto has finally come to understand that if the US charges everyone (without exception) $15 to enter the US from Mexico, and $15 to those who want to enter Mexico from the US, Trump will have his millions to build the wall. It would also slow daily tourism, and very likely reduce the number of Mexican workers who daily cross the US border to work in the USA. The next move would be to tax the railroad cars that enter the US from Mexico. Indeed, there are so many ways Mexico could be hit that Pena Nieto must be praying for a Hillary victory.

#3 The savings realized from the reduction of Federal and State social services payments, anchor baby birthing, meds, etc, to illegals will more than cover fencing costs. I doubt any additional taxes will be required.

I would be in favor of a special tax levy on Wells Fargo money transfers across our southern border.

#4 Hillary is a badly wounded candidate. Nieto is being pragmatic.

#7 If Trump really wants to scare mexico, tell them to get all their illegals back to Mexico or we'll consider it an invalidation of the treaty of guadalupe hildago and we go back to owning everything up to and including Mexico City. I suspect Mexico's attitude would change a bit

#8 If the amount of remittances going from USA to Mexico drops they are in deep crap. They'll either have to reform (hopefully) or plummet into civil war (or worse civil war than now).
