The White House is messy place to be these days, between the lay offs, policy reversals and changes, and scandals plaguing the current administration.
In the most recent chain of events, transcripts from Trump’s phone conversations with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto regarding the infamous “wall” have been released.

The Washington Post obtained a transcript of the call in which Trump seems to be threatening Nieto. Nieto had been very outspoken in the media about his plans to make sure that Mexico does not come out of pocket for the outlandish wall, and in the phone conversations Trump threatens to stop communicating with Nieto if he continued to make him “look bad”.
“You cannot say that to the press,” Trump said multiple times throughout the call.
During the talks, he also mentioned that the wall was least important, but still held political weight and expectations for him. Nieto held firm to not compromising on giving up any funds for the wall, and the transcripts show Trump being frustrated, saying “I have had it.”
Trump also spilled tea about his conversations with Putin being much more pleasant that his calls with Nieto.
The White House has yet to comment on the release of the transcripts, but we’re sure they’ll have some far fetched rationale behind the President’s statements. In the meantime, check out a video rundown of the document for yourself below.
