How rich – the Presidential candidate who can’t even be bothered to hold a press conference (while Trump has held 16) is attacking Donald Trump for visiting Mexico. She must be outraged that he’s not even President yet and he’s already more diplomatic than she is. He reiterated the need to build a border wall during their meeting, and even got Mexico’s President to say he’s open to renegotiating parts of NAFTA.
Among Hillary’s comments about Trump’s visit to Mexico were that “Getting countries working together was my job every day as Secretary of State. It’s more than a photo-op. It takes consistency and reliability,” Clinton said to an audience of veterans at the American Legion conference today. “And it certainly takes more than trying to make up for a year of insults and insinuations by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours, and then flying home again. That is not how it works.”
She also tried to take credit for the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden in that speech, but that’s a subject for a whole other article.
Mike Pence certainly has a reputation as Trump’s toned-down counterpart, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have a sharp tongue of his own. Following Hillary’s comments, he took to Twitter to fire back (tweet located through Angry Patriot Movement):
..turns out @HillaryClinton had planned to meet with President Pena Nieto ..but was still negotiating her speaking fees.

Hillary and Bill have brought in a combined $153 million in speaking fees – and in most of those cases, we have zero idea what she talked about. Bernie Sanders drew attention to the $700k+ she received in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs, and in one debate got her to say she might consider releasing them. After Sanders left the race, the probability of that happening fell to exactly zero percent.
