“It is evident that we have differences with the new United States government on some issues, such as a wall that Mexico absolutely will not pay for,” Peña Nieto said. “At no time will we accept anything that goes against our dignity as a country and our dignity as Mexicans. I don’t want to wait a year and a half,” Trump said of the wall at a press conference on Wednesday. Rex Tillerson, the secretary of state nominee, sounded more subdued than Trump on the Mexico topic in Senate hearings on his nomination. An Ipsos poll found 57% of Mexicans said they would sooner abandon Nafta than give in to Trump’s demands.
