2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump hit back Monday at Hillary Clinton and others criticizing him for his comments on Mexicans in his 2016 kickoff, saying that he has “a great relationship” with Mexico and the Mexican people.
However, Trump did caution to radio host Hugh Hewitt that without a border, “we’re not going to have a country” without a strong border. The real estate mogul followed-up by asking rhetorically “how do you define a country if you don’t have borders?”
“So, first of all, Donald Trump, she attacked you personally. Didn’t name you. What do you think about that?” Hewitt asked Trump from the outset.
“Well, 1) I’m honored. And 2) as far as Mexico is concerned I believe strongly in a very very strong border. We have no border right now, it’s like a sieve. It’s like water pouring through. It’s ridiculous,” Trump said. “I have a great relationship with Mexico. I have a great relationship with Mexican people, and frankly, you know, I just feel strongly that you need to have a border and it has to be strong.”
