MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexicans responded angrily to what they saw as a weak performance by President Enrique Pena Nieto, who appeared to let Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump emerge unscathed from a meeting Wednesday.
Pena Nieto tried gamely to take the high road and avoid arguing with Trump, who didn’t backtrack in his plans to build a wall along the two countries’ border.
Trump called Mexican-Americans “spectacular” and “amazing,” and Pena Nieto mentioned disagreements and the fact that Mexicans felt “aggrieved,” but Mexico’s president never did what people here wanted most: demand that Trump apologize for suggesting that many Mexican migrants were rapists or criminals.
