Tensions Trump continued his social media attacks
"Mexico has taken advantage of the U.S. for long enough. Massive trade deficits & little help on the very weak border must change, NOW!" Trump said in a post on Twitter.
The latest tweet from Trump comes amid an ongoing dispute over who will pay for the president's proposed wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway was also highly critical of Mexico in an interview on "CBS This Morning" on Friday, claiming the Mexican government does not want to stop the flow of illegal drugs and immigrants across the border.
"They want to continue to allow people and I assume drugs, since they're not doing much to stop that, pouring over our borders," Conway said.
"We have to look at America," she added. "Mexico should pay for that wall because they get an awful lot from this country through NAFTA and through other monetary disbursements." ■
