New York[USA], Feb. 24(ANI): U.S. President Donald Trump has termed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's visit to Mexico as 'tough'. "The trip would be difficult because we have to be treated fairly by Mexico," CNN quoted Trump, while speaking to manufacturers at the White House. The comments came as Tillerson and Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly are in Mexico to sort out differences between the two countries. Their visit to Mexico City also comes months after the immigration measures undertaken under the Trump administration that had dramatic implications for the country. Kelly and Tillerson are meeting with President Enrique Peña Nieto, Mexican Cabinet ministers and military officials. Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray, reportedly, said that he wanted to "make it clear, in the most emphatic way, that the Mexican government and the people of Mexico do not have to accept measures unilaterally imposed on a government by another government." Relations between the U.S. and Mexico soured after Trump signed two executive orders for the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, which he insisted Mexico would pay for. (ANI)
