Mexican President to Trump: 'No one stands above the dignity of Mexico'

"We are convinced that, by coming to agreements as friends, partners and good neighbors, both countries will fare better than if we confront each other", Pena Nieto said.

Meanwhile, Fox said there is a growing concern that Trump's statements about Mexico and the Mexican people is "creating a backlash against candidates who are pro-free market, who want to be allies with the United States, want to continue the policies that you began in your presidency that is actually seen and ushered in a generation of economic growth in Mexico". His statement came a day after Mr. Trump signed an order deploying the National Guard to the U.S. -Mexico border.

US-Mexican ties have been strained since Trump won office on the back of a campaign heavy on anti-Mexican rhetoric.

The two neighboring countries and Canada are locked in tense negotiations over the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, which Trump has threatened to rip up if the USA government can't win more favorable terms.

Did Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto offer to pay for psychiatric care for President Donald Trump instead of paying for Trumps border wall?

Stating that "threatening or disrespectful attitudes" were unjustified, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto lashed out at his USA counterpart Donald Trump amid growing tensions over migration and border security. But Mexican politicians have called for reducing bilateral cooperation if Trump militarizes the border. The leading candidate is Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, a center-left populist.

One of those candidates said Mexico should restrict its cooperation with the USA on anti-terrorism efforts until the troops are withdrawn.

"As a matter of fact, close to 500,000 Central Americans cross the border into Mexico and 400,000 of them are sent back", said Fox.

David Cuauhtemoc Gallindo, the mayor of the border city of Nogales, said that Trump's comments "generate a certain amount of scandal but no fear in Nogales".

"U.S. farmers, watch out", he said. "It won't make a bit of difference".
