HILLARY COMPILES LIST OF EVERY TWEET DONALD TRUMP HAS SENT ABOUT MEXICO

In honor of Donald Trump’s trip to Mexico today, the Hillary Clinton campaign released a comprehensive list of the Republican nominee’s tweets about the country over the past two years. 
It’s a ‘big, beautiful list of tweets’ the Clinton campaign said in the blog post, meant to mock Trump’s prose. 
‘Here’s a helpful refresher,’ the Clinton campaign advertised, embedding tweet after tweet, which articulate some of Trump’s most talked-about political positions of this presidential campaign cycle.

There are, of course, many, many tweets about illegal immigration and about trade. 
The Clinton campaign, trying to make a mockery of the Republican – whose meeting today with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto took the political world by surprise – made sure to include some of the most goofy.
 On trade, Trump tweeted on July 30 of this year: ‘The “Rust Belt” was created by politicians like the Clintons who allowed our jobs to be stolen from us by other countries like Mexico. END!’ 
On the wall, Trump wrote in April 2015: ‘Our border is being breached daily by criminals,’ he said. ‘We must build a wall & deduct costs from Mexican foreign aid!’ 
Interestingly, when talking to reporters after their joint statements in Mexico City today, Trump said he didn’t discuss with the Mexican president who would finance the wall.  
Donald Trump tweeted a lot about the Mexican drug lord El Chapo after he escaped from prison in July of 2015

 The blog post also reminds voters that Trump was big about talking about ‘El Chapo,’ the escaped Mexican drug lord. 
‘El Chapo and the Mexican drug cartels use the border unimpeded like it was a vacuum cleaner, sucking drugs and death right into the U.S.,’ Trump wrote, getting dramatic. 
‘The U.S. will invite El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord who just escaped prison, to become a U.S. citizen because our “leaders” can’t say no!’ Trump tweeted on July 13 of last year. 
Fifteen minutes later he tweeted about El Chapo again. 
‘The joke around town is that I freed El Chapo from the Mexican prison because the timing was good [with my] statements on border security,’ Trump said. 
Trump suggested that ISIS fighters were snaking over the border from Mexico to the U.S., which Politifact - looking into after Trump repeated the claim during his campaign - rated false

Trump announced his candidacy a month before, on June 16, and quickly made illegal immigration from Mexico a central tenet in what was considered to be a longshot campaign for a political newcomer. 
Trump was widely credited with making border security a top talking point on the campaign trail and his tweets did a lot of that talking. 
Sometimes, however, his statements were off base.
‘The fight against ISIS starts at our border,’ Trump tweeted in October 2014, a statement he also made during his run for the White House. ‘”At least” 10 ISIS have been caught crossing the Mexico border. Built a wall!’ Trump prescribed. 
Politifact rated that statement ‘false.’
