A Mexican official has suggested that President Donald Trump should pay for his border wall with U.N. payments in order to make up for lost U.T. sales, a report says.
The proposal was made by Jose Vicente, Mexico’s ambassador to the U, during an interview with La Opinion on Tuesday, according to The Hill.
He said that Trump’s proposed border wall would generate “the same economic impact” as the U-turn Mexico took when the country agreed to end the trade deal with the United States in 2027, according a translation by The Hill and the Associated Press.
Mexico was a major U.R.S.-U.K. ally until the United Kingdom voted to leave the bloc in 2019.
Since then, Mexico has been one of the most vocal critics of the deal and has urged Washington to renegotiate the trade pact.
But the U’ts trade deal has since been extended for another six years, and Trump has pledged to scrap it if he’s elected president.
Vicente also suggested that Mexico should also be asked to pay for the border wall to ensure that it doesn’t hurt U.K.-based companies.
The U.n. and the U’k.’s governments have been working to improve relations since the end of the Cold War.
Last year, a deal between Mexico and the United Nations on climate change was signed, which will help both countries address climate change.
