Anti-Trump Marches Show Mexicans Feel Insulted, Government Says

MEXICO CITY – The anti-Trump marches that brought together thousands of people in cities around Mexico showed just how insulted people feel by the policies promoted by US President Donald Trump, the nation’s foreign secretary said on Monday.

The protests “confirm that Mexico is a country where we citizens fully exercise our democratic freedoms,” Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray said during a Televisa morning news program.

Videgaray also said that “in the coming weeks” US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will visit this country and that the date of his trip will be announced “very soon, probably today.”

Also planning a trip to Mexico is Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, who might even come with Tillerson, Videgaray said.

He also denied recent press accounts that he was helping write a speech for Trump about Mexico to smooth the way.

The Mexican foreign secretary repeated once more that it is “absolutely false” that the US president threatened his Mexican counterpart Enrique Peña Nieto with sending troops to the Latin American country to help with its war on drugs.

Thousands of people in the capital and other Mexican cities cried out against Trump on Sunday and called for “respect,” while symbolically knocking down a representation of the wall that the US president says he will build along the two countries’ common border.

The biggest demonstrations were in Mexico City, where some 20,000 protesters poured into the streets, and in Guadalajara, with around 10,000 demonstrators.

Signs written in English and Spanish featured such slogans as “Don’t build the wall,” “Trump racist” and “Bridges, not walls.”

Others gave a reminder that “Mexican workers have helped build the US” and called on everyone to unite and “Make Mexico great again.”
