Donald Trump's meeting with Mexico's president was obviously a political tactic in efforts to help his election campaign. The suddenness of the visit and the topics supposedly discussed are key indicators as to the real intentions of the meeting. Mexico president Pena Nieto now even admits it was a mistake, possibly realizing now that it was only for political gain.
Trump was using the meeting with Mexico's President just for his own political purposes, just as HIllary Clinton uses meeting with VIP's for her own political purposes. Why is it always Trump that is placed in a bad light over these things? Clinton is never taken to task, ever. This is yet another example of a media bias.
Yes, Trump was using the meeting just for his own political purposes. It gave him a chance to gloat and tell his followers how wonderful the meeting was. It shows he was serious about getting Mexico to pay for the wall. The only problem is, the president said they would not pay.
Yes, this whole year we have been witnesses of Trump's political campaign in his every step of the way, in his actions, even in his facial expressions. So, why would he now do something not politically oriented? He wouldn't. He is Trump, he has his mission to win the elections and he is fighting with all the means.
