Donald Trump has a message for Hillary Clinton: “I don’t choke,” but you do.
The Republican nominee is insisting that did not “choke” in his meeting last week with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, even as Clinton defended her campaign’s line that he “did choke” by not bringing up payment for the border wall.
“So let me just tell you about choking. I don’t choke,” Trump said Monday in an interview aired Tuesday morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “She chokes. Look at the deals she’s made. She’s responsible for so many bad things that have happened to our country, including the signing by her husband of NAFTA, which has drained our country of its jobs. I’ve been given A plus, including by you people … I have been given A-pluses for the job I did in Mexico.”
“And the fact is Mexico will pay for the wall. It was discussed that it wouldn’t be discussed but they know my stance and I know their stance,” Trump continued. “And until I’m president, I’m not going to press anything very much but they fully know my stance. My stance is we’re going to build a wall and Mexico’s going to pay for the wall. It’s very simple.”
