When did he say that, during the initial press conference when he said "some of them, I assume, are good people.", or did he say that in a later interview?

He also said this.

"I like Mexico," Trump told CNN's Jake Tapper. "I love the Mexican people. I do business with the Mexican people, but you have people coming through the border that are from all over. And they're bad. They're really bad."

"You have people coming in, and I'm not just saying Mexicans — I'm talking about people that are from all over that are killers and rapists, and they're coming into this country"

Trump's characterization of Mexican people as murderers and rapists certainly is a good reason for them not to like him.

If that wasn't bad enough, Trump attacked a Mexican -American federal judge as being unfit for office because of his ethnicity.

This is from Pew Research in July. I find it hard to believe that Trump managed to get a 5% approval rating.

FT_17.07.17_TrumpInMexico.pngTrump gets his lowest ratings in Mexico. Over the past decade, U.S. presidents have gotten mixed or negative reviews in Mexico, but at 5%, Trump registers the lowest confidence rating of any U.S. leader in Mexico since Pew Research Center began surveying there. His rating in Mexico is also the lowest among the 37 nations polled in 2017. The proposed border wall between the U.S. and Mexico has been a high-profile position for Trump since he declared his candidacy for president, and more than nine-in-ten Mexicans oppose it. U.S. favorability has typically been higher than confidence in the American president in Mexico, and that remains the case this year – though the share of the public with a positive view of the U.S. has dropped steeply since 2015.

Why would Mexicans oppose a border wall?      The obvious reason would be because they feel it is their right to illegal enter another country and a wall would make illegal entry more difficult.

 

Mexicans clearly has little to no respect for the sovereignty of the USA.

US hits Venezuela president with sanctions-

 

"The move comes after Venezuela held a weekend election that will give Maduro’s ruling party virtually unlimited power in the South American country.

 

The Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control announced the sanctions against Maduro in a brief statement on Monday, a day after the Venezuelan vote to elect a constituent assembly that will rewrite the constitution. A longer explanation from the White House was also expected.

The administration imposed sanctions on more than a dozen senior current and former Venezuelan officials last week, warning the socialist government that new penalties would come if Maduro went ahead with Sunday’s election for the assembly.........

The Demolition of US Global Power-

 

“Trump’s crudely intimidatory, violent, know-nothing approach to sensitive international issues has encircled the globe from Moscow to the Middle East to Beijing, plunging foes and allies alike into a dark vortex of expanding strategic instability.”

 

For an American president to virtually walk out of his grand inaugural celebrations into such a hailstorm of criticism is beyond extraordinary. Having more or less exhausted their lexicon of condemnatory rhetoric, the usual crew of commentators is now struggling to understand how an American president could be quite so willfully self-destructive........

Guess Trump was only being nice but I don't think she's hot at all. (Trump better really compliment HIS wife when he gets home.) 

 

I'm sure she'd be impressed with you, too.

Trump to French first lady: 'You're in such good shape ... beautiful'-

 

"President Donald Trump was overheard complimenting the French first lady on her physical appearance during a photo opportunity in Paris on Thursday.

 

Video of the encounter was posted to the French government's Facebook page. In the video, Trump turns to President Emmanuel Macron's wife, Brigitte Macron, and says,

"You're in such good shape." Trump then reportedly repeated the comment to Macron before turning back to his wife, adding "beautiful.".......

The Enemy of My Enemy Is My…?

 

The Saudi-American-Iranian-Russian-Qatari-Syrian conundrum.

 

 

Old ancient proverb, The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

 

That is certainly nothing new.  Remember when we armed the Taliban to fight the Russians during the 1980's?

In movies proverb was quoted and implemented by Royce  in "Predators" (2010)

The Enemy of My Enemy Is My…?

 

The Saudi-American-Iranian-Russian-Qatari-Syrian conundrum.

 

"Trump come to view a region he clearly knows little about through the Saudi royal family’s paranoid eyes, believing staunchly that Shia Iran is hell-bent on controlling an Islamic world that is 85 percent Sunni...

 

 

"(Trump) has no problem contradicting himself or undermining aides working to find a more rational basis for his ever changing stances and desires on matters of import. These problems are compounded by his inability to connect the dots in the very complex, volatile Middle East where wars are raging in Syria, Yemen and Iraq, or to assess how a move on one diplomatic or military front will impact a host of inter-connected issues........

 

...the impulsive Donald Trump has met his younger counterpart, Prince Muhammad bin Salman (Saudi Arabia Defense Minister and Deputy Crown Prince), equally impulsive and blind to even the medium-term consequences of his aggressive initiatives.

 

....The shared obsession of the prince and the president with Iran, which neither of them is able to comprehend in its complexity, has the potential for creating a true global crisis. If anything, the pressure on Trump in his imagined new world order is only increasing to do the Saudis one better and push a regime-change agenda in a big way when it comes to Iran. It’s a formula for disaster on a breathtaking scale."
