President Trump hasn’t had a great relationship with Mexico. He ran on a virulently anti-immigrant agenda and frequently talks about building a wall on our southern border and forcing Mexico to pay for it, despite Mexico’s repeated response that they will do no such thing.
Trump’s tweet acknowledging Mexico’s Independence Day went over like a lead balloon tied to a cinderblock.
Congratulations to all of our Mexican friends on National Independence Day. We will be doing great things together!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 16, 2018
And just like that, memes were born.
Many people were facepalming. HARD.
Every day I am embarrassed that America chose you to be our president. You are a disgrace to the office. We deserve better.— Milquetoast (@BlueRobotDesign) September 16, 2018
You really have lost your mind. #25thAmendment— Dr.W (@boatingdoc_) September 17, 2018
While most called out his questionable friendship with our southern neighbor.
Are these Mexican friends the same you called rapists and murderers or are these different friends? #TwoFacedLyingBastard— Kevin Lesbirel Jones (@bipolarklj) September 17, 2018
Mexico will not be paying for the wall folks...— Resist the Lyin King! (@ronzdebonz) September 17, 2018

What you said Mexicans are rapists and bad hombres— Katy Alexa Santana???????? (@katsanny11_g) September 17, 2018
This from the guy who calls Mexicans rapists. This from the guy who supports an anti Mexican police force. This from a guy who's been repeating Anne Coulter's racist rhetoric.#NewMAGA#MexicansAreGreatAlready#DefundTheWall#MexicoWillNotPay#OverOrUnder#MexicansAreNotRapists— jeremy babson (@BabsonJeremy) September 17, 2018
You have a Mexican friend?...Does he or she know it? Is it mutual?— Yaya (@Risingupdown) September 17, 2018
We’re guessing it’s not at all mutual.
