Guest: Evan Ward, PhD, History professor, BYU America’s relationship with Mexico is not great right now. Maybe as bad as its been in decades, actually, thanks to tough talk by President Trump. He and Mexican President Pena Nieto were supposed to have met in person last week, but they called it off after some angry rhetoric and a tweet from Trump saying, “If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting.”  The two have since had a phone conversation in which Trump is reported to have criticized Pena Nieto’s for not doing enough to fight drug cartels.
