Trump Responds to Mexican President’s $20 Billion Demand from Biden Administration: ‘I Wouldn’t Offer Him a Dime’

In an exclusive interview with “One Nation” host Brian Kilmeade, former President Trump discussed what he sees as a “lack of respect” from foreign leaders towards President Biden and his administration. Kilmeade, who is also a co-host of “Fox & Friends,” brought up Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s recent interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi.

“On ‘60 Minutes,’ the president of Mexico says, ‘We’re not going to shut down our border until you change your policy on Cuba and change your policy on Venezuela.’ Is it OK for the Mexican president to dictate American policy?” Kilmeade inquired.

Trump responded, emphasizing Obrador’s broader demands: “Well, he said much more than that. He said he wants $10 billion essentially just to talk, $10 billion to talk, and that’s come out since, and no, that wouldn’t happen with me, with the wall.”

When questioned about the shift, Trump attributed it to what he perceives as a fundamental change in how foreign leaders regard and engage with the U.S. president: “It boils down to one thing: a lack of respect for the president.”

“They would never say that to me,” the former president continued. “They would never say before we even talk. They want $10 billion a year, Mexico just asked for $10 billion a year. They would never ask it. I wouldn’t give them 10 cents.”

Trump highlighted border crossing figures, stating, “Last month, 242,587 immigrants attempted to enter the U.S. This is in addition to the more than 10 million immigrants who have reportedly entered the country illegally since Biden took office. It is the most recorded in that amount of time of any administration.”

Trump concluded the interview with a stark prediction: “The most important day in the history of our country is going to be November 5th. Our country is going bad, and it’s going to be changed on November 5th, and if it’s not changed, we’re not going to have a country anymore.”
