Everyone saw the headlines, “Trump threatening to send the US military to chase “bad hombres” out of Mexico in a phone call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.”
According to the Mexican government the claim is “a downright lie.”
The statement “did not happen during that call,” the Mexican government said on Twitter.
“I know it with absolute certainty, there was no threat. The things that have been said are nonsense and a downright lie,”Peña Nieto’s spokesman, Eduardo Sanchez, said in a radio interview.
Mexico’s foreign relations department slammed the report, saying its allegations were “based on absolute falsehoods” and “do not correspond to the reality at all.”
