Business Insider During a phone call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto last Friday, US President Donald Trump disparaged Mexico and threatened to use military force against the drug trade. While both the White House and the Mexican president characterized the call as a “friendly,” Dolia Estevez, a journalist based in Washington, DC, said she “obtained confidential information” corroborating the content of the discussion.
“I don’t need the Mexicans. I don’t need Mexico,” Trump reportedly told the Mexican president. “We are going to build the wall and you all are going to pay for it, like it or not.”
