(London Telegraph) Mexican senator is proposing legislation that would block any attempt by Donald Trump to force the country to pay for a border wall, amid outrage over President Enrique Peña Nieto's meeting with the Republican candidate last week.
“It was an historic error for our president to invite a person like that to our country. [Mr Trump] used us as a campaign tool,” says Mexican senator Armando Rios Piter.
As the Republican presidential candidate rose in many polls early this week, Senator Rios, from the leftist PRD party is planning to introduce a bill that would prepare Mexico for a fight if Mr Trump wins.
