All quotes about Mexico

Donald J. Trump

You have some pretty tough hombres in Mexico that you may need help with, and we are willing to help you with that big league. Look, I spoke to Putin, Merkel, Abe of Japan, to France today, and this was my most unpleasant call because I will be honest with you.feedback

Wilbur Ross

If we don't fix the rules of origin, negotiations on the rest of the agreement will fail to meaningfully shift the trade imbalance. Our nation's ballooning trade deficit has gutted American manufacturing, killed jobs and sapped our wealth. That is going to change under President Trump, and rules of origin are just the beginning.feedback

Fatima Navarro

When we realized it was not, we started to evacuate the children. All of us who are alive feel so powerless that we couldn't help those who died.feedback

Lorena del Rayo

It's the duality. We live close to everything, the economy is good. But the earthquakes.feedback

Fernando Bustos

Many residents feel a big distrust because it's evident that it's not a safe place to live.feedback

Fernando Bustos

It scared me a lot, it was terrible. The house suffered only minor damage, but we definitely want to get out of here. I no longer want to live here anymore.feedback

Eduardo Aizenman

Now and the next couple of years, it's going to be a factor. I am sure many people will be putting their properties in the market. When you're here to experience the earth's shaking. I don't think there's any turning around. There's too much to give up: the walkability, the sharing of creativity, the creative industries, people who are doing things. Foreigners love living here.feedback

Eduardo Aizenman

You're in awe of the opportunities, and that kind of puts aside the risks.feedback

Marco Rascón

The people are weighing fear against defending their assets. I'm from here, I'm staying here, I'm dying here.feedback

Edgar Felix

This is just like Mexican politics, incredible. This was just a media spectacle.feedback

Antonio Juárez

She said, My name is Sofía.' It was very weak, it was very weak, and she was very tired.feedback

Enrique Pena Nieto

We are all vulnerable faced with the forces of nature, and for this reason we come together as one when it comes to saving a life or helping a victim. If anything characterizes Mexicans, it is our generosity and fraternity.feedback

Jose Luis Vergara

There's a girl alive in there, we're pretty sure of that, but we still don't know how to get to her. The hours that have passed complicate the chances of finding alive or in good health the person who might be trapped.feedback

Rodrigo Sanchez

I don't think so. If things stay the same, we'll just keep doing what we're doing, keep helping. The track is fine and we just need to refocus and get the show done. It's a relatively new circuit. In Mexico all the new structures are built with that purpose because the chances [of an earthquake] are very high. It's been inspected twice already, from the track surface and also the buildings, and it's OK. So we'll continue doing the assessments as we go but so far there's really no concern, we'll have a race.feedback

Rodrigo Sanchez

Right now we are working with the federal government, who declared Mexico City as a national crisis, which allows them to put federal resources -- the army, the navy, the airforce -- to us. We need to get back into place quickly. A good example is there was some damage to the airport, and it was shut down from the morning until midday. By 8pm it was already open, we were sending flights out and receiving flights in. Now the concern is to getting things moving again from a city perspective, that's where we're at.feedback

Rodrigo Sanchez

The Mexican people, in times like this, we bring ourselves together and we know how to move on. It's important to show our unity, not only amongst ourselves but to the world. So in that aspect I think we're fine. Its times [like this] where you get to sit down and see what all of us are capable of doing. We need to remain together in the bad and the good, not only in the bad. That's a powerful message and something we need to show and I think Mexicans are a good example of that, their pride and their energy.feedback

Rodrigo Sanchez

The same pride you usually see in the grandstands we are seeing in the devastation zones right now, everyone is not even sleeping, people are staying overnight just to get people out of buildings.feedback

Enrique Bonilla - Liga

All the clubs are doing their small part. We'd like to bring the people a moment of happiness in this tough time, but it's a more complex decision than that and it's necessary to have all the information from the authorities.feedback

Aram Sahakian

Because, in these major events, hundreds of thousands of people are going to be displaced. The supply chain is going to be impacted, whether it is transportation, or medical supplies, or food. You need to be prepared to last at least five to seven days.feedback

Kelly Huston

That is a big problem for us. It means ... we will spend a lot of unnecessary time helping people who could have otherwise helped themselves, but decided they didn't want to or didn't have time.feedback

Lucy Jones

Mexico quake reminds us: science can tell us what the impact can be but society has to take action to prevent catastrophic damage.feedback

Aram Sahakian

The first people to assist you are going to be your family and your neighbors.feedback

Kelly Huston

Even a lot of first-responders, when they see that video, they are cringing. I have a son and I can't even imagine the thought of him being trapped in a building. The images are compelling. They are sending a clear message.feedback

Robert Lighthizer

Yeah, well, we're moving at warp speed but we don't know whether we're going to get to a conclusion, that's the problem. We're running very quickly somewhere.feedback

Ana Karen Almanza

It's the residents, the neighbors. Lots of them don't have anywhere to live.feedback

Vladimir Estrada

The building is very, very damaged. It moves. Everything moves. Nobody here has insurance. Some have family members who can help them but others don't. Everything is in doubt.feedback

Enrique Sarmiento

We want to emphasize that we have no knowledge about the report that emerged with the name of a girl. We do not believe – we are sure – it was not a reality.feedback

Amaury Perez

We shouted, If you are inside the vehicle, please knock three times.' He knocked three times.feedback

Luis Manuel Carrillo Nunez

It's hard to know that you're not going to see again the friends that you loved. I'm really traumatized.feedback

Rafael Nadal

I hope we didn't wait too long, because we're too old now.feedback

Antonio Fonseca

They believe fantastical things. Since there is no explanation, there are lots of rumours.feedback

Manuel Hernández

This was a private school but not an expensive one. Most parents are hard working families that wanted to give their kids the best possible education.feedback

Pablo Spencer

The majority of the roof of the church collapsed. There were rocks the size of an automobile ... it killed nearly everyone.feedback

Enrique Pena Nieto

The priority continues to be rescuing people in collapsed structures and tending to the injured. Every second counts to save lives.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Yes, I'm willing to get inside right now. If there is somebody alive right now, we're going to get in.feedback

Pablo Spencer

People are sleeping in the streets, because they don't feel safe enough to be inside damaged buildings.feedback

Elizabeth Willems

It's almost like working with someone who was in Manhattan during the events of September 11. It's almost a question I ask automatically: Where were you that day?feedback

Bob Prepejchal

I didn't know what war sounded like. I never went to war. When the (Mexican military) helicopters (were) flying and hovering over and let go of these rockets, it was unbelievable what it sounded like. Then there are those electronic Gatling guns … they were just raining down shells like crazy, and it went on for a while.feedback

Bob Lucio

People would say, We don't know what they are going to do with the fence.' I don't blame them for that. I wouldn't want to pay for advance (membership) for maybe a place where you may not have access to it.feedback

Bob Lucio

The government did what they did – they forced it on everybody. In 2009 they actually started building the fence. It hurt our business right away. We slowly started to lose our membership.feedback

Luis Videgaray

We have identified which countries have the teams and equipment that we need right now to support rescue efforts.feedback

Miguel Osorio

The whole city was affected, and we're part of the city, so we're here to help. What else were we going to do?feedback

Amelia Lara

The conversations were interesting. People were in shock, many were shaking and crying, so you just tried to take their minds off things, ask them about silly things.feedback

Álvaro Jiménez

It's mysterious and it's tragic. But you can't do anything to stop it. You just do everything you can to help the people affected.feedback

Álvaro Jiménez

These kinds of events bring the best out of Mexicans. We can fight each other like dogs when things are going well, but when somebody needs help, we band together.feedback

Amanda Ramírez

It felt like the world was ending. There were moments as I went down the stairs in which I thought, Will I make it out?feedback

Victoria Lopez Torres

We are young. We didn't live through '85. But we know that it's important to come out into the streets to help.feedback

Paul Zukunft

We have seen a dramatic increase in cultivation and production. This is almost exclusively coming out of Colombia. They'll either ship it out of Colombia, or just to the south, Ecuador, and then land it in Central America. About 40 percent of these loads are being landed in Mexico, but it's ultimate destination is the United States.feedback

Jose Antonio Vargas

Freedom is in the mind. You need to use that as much as possible and take advantage of those opportunities.feedback

Jose Antonio Vargas

Oh my God, now you have something that I don't have–you have a Social Security number.feedback

Antonio Garza

The army was out. The navy was out and the damage is quite widespread across many parts of the city.feedback

Barack Obama

Thinking about our neighbors in Mexico and all our Mexican-American friends tonight. Cuidense mucho y un fuerte abrazo para todos. God bless the people of Mexico City. We are with you and will be there for you.feedback

Enrique Pena Nieto

This earthquake is a hard and very painful test for our country. Us Mexicans have had difficult experiences as a consequence of earthquakes in the past. And we have learned to respond to these episodes with commitment and the spirit of solidarity. We will stay united, confronting this new challenge together.feedback

Mariana Morales

There was the sound of thunder ... then dust and all this. The people are organising quickly.feedback

Javier Hernandez

Shocked by what is happening in [Mexico]! We need to come together to help as much possible! A lot of strength for everyone.feedback

Sergio Perez

I'm deeply concerned for what my country is living. It's time to be united. I've made an alliance with fund-carlosslim and for each 1 that fundacionchecoperez receives, they will donate 5. I'd like to kick off this initiative by donating 3 million pesos. Please join us!feedback

Enrique Pena Nieto

There are 30 children and eight adults still missing. Rescue operations are ongoing.feedback

Micaela Guillén

I managed to get down the stairs as glass broke all around us. I thought for sure the ceiling was going to fall on me.feedback

Gabriela Magaña

I just saw an immense black cloud of dust and heard a big bang. Then I started to hear crying, and the smell of gas was unbearable. It was a nightmare.feedback

María José Jaso

It was horrible. Everyone was trying to get out the door at the same time. We were terrified.feedback

Enrique Pena Nieto

At this moment we have an emergency in Mexico City and we are going to focus our operational presence in the capital.feedback

Don Blakeman

In general, we don't think there's a triggering effect over that kind of a distance.feedback

Leticia Gonzalez

We were all running like crazy. This was the worst earthquake I've ever seen.feedback

David Porras

We have a lot of hope that some will still be rescued. But we're slow, like turtles.feedback

Rodolfo Soriano Nuñez

The government's boast about the triumph of the new building codes were clearly bullshit, and have come falling down as we see new buildings have collapsed while older ones have survived. The situation in the school – which is quite new – should not have happened Of course people will be angry and questions will be asked.feedback

Sergio Aguyo

Xochimilco needs help, provisions and volunteers. There are important damages and no support has arrived.feedback

Sheryl Sandberg - Facebook

Hate has no place on Facebook–and as a Jew, as a mother, and as a human being, I know the damage that can come from hate. The fact that hateful terms were even offered as options was totally inappropriate and a fail on our part. People wrote these deeply offensive terms into the education and employer write-in fields and because these terms were used so infrequently, we did not discover this until ProPublica brought it to our attention. We never intended or anticipated this functionality being used this way–and that is on us. And we did not find it ourselves–and that is also on us.feedback

Jorge Ortiz Diaz

It's like Sodom and Gomorrah, like God is angry at us. Now is the moment when solidarity begins.feedback

Alison Carlman

Every one of our local partners has been vetted by GlobalGiving. Because we have relationships with organizations on the ground, we can get them money quickly.feedback

Sara Nason

One difficulty that we see in vetting international organizations is that there is no large standardized body that takes in validated information about these organizations.feedback

Sara Nason

There are a lot of individuals in times of disaster that will take advantage of the emotional response people will have.feedback

Elena Villaseñor

To see a parent carry their own dead baby is something I will never forget.feedback

Florentino Rodriguez García

Please don't tell me that. They told me he was out! This can't be true!feedback

Florentino Rodriguez García

We just celebrated his birthday this past Sunday. He is such a smart little boy!feedback

Adelina Anzures

I told them that it was not a game, that we should be prepared.feedback

Silvia Bustamante

We're traumatized. I dread the thought of being upstairs and not being able to get down in time.feedback

Marta García

This is what I did 30 years ago, because it's a way I know I can help.feedback

Ricardo Ibarra

People are very sensitive because today was the 32nd anniversary of a tragedy.feedback

Miguel Angel Osorio Chong

We have some buildings where we have reports that there could be people inside. They are doing it with lots of caution.feedback

Cristina Lopez

I think it's human nature that drives everyone to come and help others.feedback

Jimmy Kimmel

The things that make us different, those are our superpowers.feedback

Diodoro Carrasco

What we have reports of is material damage ... we have no reports of deaths so far.feedback

Luis Ruben Chavez

The regulation is good news for all companies in this sector because ... growth will be greater with clear rules. We went from less than 50 (companies) in 2015 to 158 in 2016, and we already have over 240 this year.feedback

Rodrigo Suarez

The central part of Mexico City, in the lake bed, is always going to be a complicated place to build. These old buildings (may) survive an earthquake or two or three, but since they weren't built to modern code, there's always going to be a risk in major earthquakes.feedback

Moises Amador Mejia

The idea is to stay here until we find who is inside. Day and night.feedback

Israel Belmonte

It's chaos, people want to help but civil protection should be here and in charge, there are too many people on top of the debris it is dangerous for everyone.feedback

Monica Saavdera

I pray that she's already dead, that she's not trapped underneath alive.feedback

Jevon Minto

We were seated when the place started shaking real, real hard ... You can literally feel the fear and the panic in this city. You can see people ... (are) scared, their eyes are red from crying.feedback

Jesus Gonzalez Hernandez

But while exiting down the stairs, the walls were coming apart.feedback

Juan Jesus Garcia

My wife is there. I haven't been able to communicate with her. She is not answering, and now they are telling us we have to turn off our cellphones because there is a gas leak.feedback

Claudia Meneses

People are really scared right now. We're going to go to a building that fell to see if we can help.feedback

Rosaura Suarez

We got out really fast, leaving everything as it was and just left.feedback

David Wagner

(The players) were very energetic, played intense, scored a great goal showed a great togetherness, especially with the three new players who made their starting debut today. All of them played well, especially these three players. So I'm very happy with the performance. The players showed that they are capable of.feedback

Jonathan Gonzalez

International play for me is once in a lifetime opportunities, not everybody gets the chance to play international soccer so I'm very fortunate for everything I've been through and hopefully will be going through.feedback

DeAndre Yedlin

Obviously I injured my hamstring early in preseason, came back for a little bit and injured it again. The thing with a hamstring injury, or any muscular injury in your leg, is that you have to be careful – especially the type of player I am. It's a big asset to me. Sometimes, it can be a little bit scary to go out and sprint and jump and do those athletic sorts of things, but I thought I was fine today.feedback

DeAndre Yedlin

I think the medical staff have done a great job with me, so credit to them for getting me back fit and healthy. I'm looking to push forward from here.feedback

Jonathan Gonzalez

Until this moment, the United States has always guided and been there for me so I feel like I have the need to be with them. I'd say for now I'd have to stick with the U.S. for all they've done for me. My family is supportive in whatever decisions I make so it makes it much easier for me.feedback

Carly Waddell

It was a great surprise, it's a great little miracle. I was a little late … We took a pregnancy test in Mexico, and we saw the thing [in Spanish] and were like, What does that even say?' So we Googled it.feedback

Carly Waddell

Well, I'm either having a baby or just ate chipotle (either way seems I'm winning at life).feedback

Adam Isacson

There are agents in El Paso who go a whole month without making a single arrest. We have never seen monthly totals so low. We're simply not dealing with a flood of migrants.feedback

Lewis Hamilton

We have Malaysia, where I think we should be OK. Then we have Japan, high downforce circuit; could be close, it definitely won't be our strongest. Austin, I think we'll be fine. I think Brazil would be a place where Ferrari will be particularly strong. Honestly, I think it's going to be very close in the next races. It's hard to predict. When you go to Mexico, you put your maximum downforce on but because it's so high there's little drag and maybe the cars that have a little bit more downforce might just have the edge on us.feedback

Jerry Dias - Unifor

These workers are standing up for good jobs. Not just for themselves, but for the entire community. The whole argument that opening up markets is somehow going to benefit working-class people – Nafta has shown that isn't true.feedback

Jerry Dias - Unifor

Look, Canada and the U.S. agree that the problem isn't us – especially in the auto sector. The problem is Mexico.feedback

Mike Van Boekel - Unifor

Every member understands the importance of reaching a deal that secures production, and what that means to our families and the community. The membership showed incredibly strong support for their bargaining committee throughout these negotiations.feedback

Enrique Pena Nieto

We have agreed to establish and begin the..negotiations to look over this agreement so that the commercial relationship between both nations intensifies and grows.feedback

Vergil Ortiz

I just do what my coaches tell me to do. They knew how this fight was going to end, and kept reminding me to go towards the body. I'm super happy to get the win.feedback

Marlen Esparza

Even though my opponent, on paper, looked like she had more ring experience, I've been in the ring way more than she had. Because I had three-minute rounds, I was able to think a lot more in the ring and was even told by my trainer I had to slow down … I'm satisfied with my performance because this was my first six-round fight.feedback

Ramón Ojeda Mestre

There was no sane planning for where all the working people were going to live.feedback

Álvaro Javier Ramírez

Historically, cash is king. They ignored the needs of the working-class neighborhoods. The shortfalls are many.feedback

Troy Shinbrot

However you do the experiment, there's going to be an inevitable big gap between how large an experiment can be – a meter, two meters – and tens of kilometers, which occur in earthquakes.feedback

Troy Shinbrot

It's a little bit difficult to ferret out what is a real one and what is not.feedback

Friedemann Freund - Nasa

The faster we stretch the rocks, the more of these positive-charge carriers are released.feedback

Friedemann Freund - Nasa

These phenomena are well documented because of so many security cameras running day and night now.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

In our military-to-military relationship, we maintain a very steady relationship – a growing relationship built on trust and respect. We have shared security concerns. There's partnerships, military-to-military exchanges that are based on trust and respect. The people are keenly aware of their crime problems. They're dealing with them. The drug trafficking going into America, we're working together on it. Every nation has its challenges it deals with. Mexico is keenly aware of these and I'm there to support them in dealing with them.feedback

Carlos Ghosn - Renault

But I think everybody has an interest in NAFTA, this is something which has been done in function, in the interests of the United States, of Mexico and Canada. So I'm very personally confident that even if there are some changes on NAFTA, it will stay, because it's in the best interest of the three countries.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

We have shared security concerns. There's partnerships, military-to-military exchanges, that are based on trust and respect. I'm going down to build the trust and show the respect on their Independence Day.feedback

Corinne Olympios

Thank you. I really appreciate that. I do wish we could have communicated and reached out to each other. I think it would have been a lot easier on both of us. Everybody felt like they were experts on our lives and experts on the situation and knew exactly what happened and this and that, and they didn't. Nobody did.feedback

DeMario Jackson

I'm just happy to kind of be putting this past us and for our families to no longer suffer.feedback

Sofia Huerta

I want to thank U.S. Soccer for the opportunity and I sincerely appreciate the work that went into getting this change done. Now it's about working to continue to improve and trying to earn my chance to get on the field.feedback

Enrique Pena Nieto

I'm not ruling out that in the near future marijuana will be fully legalized in Mexico. It's already occurring in other countries, particularly the United States.feedback

Laura Carlsen

This current law is so limited as to be practically useless. But we're headed in the right direction and the attitude is changing.feedback

Laura Carlsen

One of the big problems with prohibition is that it gives corrupt and abusive law enforcement forces a major justification for shakedowns.feedback

Sarah Sander

While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to.feedback

Henry Cuellar

He (Trump) said: 'I'm sure you guys can work out some of the differences.' He looked at me and said: 'You should sit down with Tom Cotton.feedback

Cinnamon Blair

I can confirm there is an initial review and preliminary investigation underway in Athletics. We will not be offering any additional details or comment until the full inquiry is complete.feedback

Melinda Gates

I'm concerned about the impact that the expansion of the Mexico City policy could have on millions of women and girls around the world. I've spent the past 16 years talking to women in developing countries who've told me–again and again–that their futures depend on the ability to use contraceptives. When you start applying [the Mexico City policy] broadly to other global-health areas, like HIV/AIDS, like malaria services–that to me is where we all have to speak out and say that is just not okay. And that's why I chose to use my voice more strongly on it this time.feedback
