Donald Trump reveals who will pay for THE WALL

On CNN's "New Day" Friday, host Alisyn Camerota quoted Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto telling Trump in a phone call, "Mexico can not pay for that wall".

US President Donald Trump renewed his threat to scrap Nafta and ripped on trading partners Canada and Mexico in a tweet early on Sunday (Aug 27), days before the three countries were scheduled to hold a second round of negotiations on rewriting the 23-year-old agreement.

President Trump, however, was not entirely focused on this natural disaster. He spent most of the morning tweeting about rescue efforts in Texas as the Houston area was hit hard by flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey, which also devastated coastal communities. "We have KKK. I got them all", he added. "Republican will win S!"

Trump said he doubted the United States can reach a deal to renegotiate NAFTA, a trilateral trading deal came into force on January 1, 1994 and has greatly benefited the region's economy by eliminating nearly all the tariffs between the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Seven wounded in Russian Federation knife attack
Surgut, about 2,100km (1,300 miles) east of Moscow in the Khanty-Mansiysk area of Siberia, has a population of more than 350,000. According to the committee, the attacker was killed by security forces, who had immediately arrived at the scene.

Trump also used Twitter on Sunday to press the need for his promised wall on the United States southern border.

He later wrote, "With Mexico being one of the highest crime Nations in the world, we must have THE WALL".

"It sounds like he's unequivocal, the Mexican president, that he's not going to pay for it".

"From an economic issue", he said, "it is the least important thing we were talking about". Both Mexico and Canada have dismissed his musing in a Tuesday speech that "we'll end up probably terminating Nafta at some point" as a negotiating tactic.
