What Donald Trump said about Mexico

Donald Trump has met with Mexico's President Enrique Pena Nieto for private talks about US-Mexican relations. Here are six of the most controversial remarks Trump made about the US’ southern neighbor.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

Trump on June 16, 2015 in his speech announcing his candidacy for president.

"I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I'll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall."

Trump on June 16, 2015 in his speech announcing his presidential bid.

"Mexico could stop 90 percent of the problems just by being tough, but they don't want to be. They don't want to stop it because it is to their advantage."

Trump on April 13, 2016 in a Fox News town hall in Pittsburgh.

"I would say it (the wall) will be complete in two years from the time we'll start. We'll start quickly. And it will be a real wall."
