Last quote about Mexico

Bill Daley
Trade is an integral part of our foreign policy. Obviously, the president wants to build a wall, he wants to deport all sorts of people back and blah, blah, blah. You can't separate it. Obviously, in a campaign people say lots of things that they find, when they get in the office, life's a little different. I think it's a good sign that Wilbur Ross is there trying to renegotiate it.feedback

David Huynh

We think this targets hard-working families and small businesses. There are definitely better ways to fund this without imposing the largest tax of its kind.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Like we want to start to negotiate with Mexico immediately, and we have these provisions where you have to wait long periods of time, you have to notify Congress, and after you notify Congress, you have to get certified, and then you can't speak to them for 100 days. The whole thing is ridiculous. Why would I call China a currency manipulator when they are working with us on the North Korean problem? They leave the United States and fire all of their employees. So we will establish tariffs that when they do that there will be consequences. Infrastructure is coming, and it's coming fast.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It is my privilege to bring NAFTA up to date through renegotiation. It is an honor to deal with both President Peña Nieto and Prime Minister Trudeau, and I believe that the end result will make all three countries stronger and better. That if we do not reach a fair deal for all, we will then terminate NAFTA. I am very upset with NAFTA. I think NAFTA has been a catastrophic trade deal for the United States, trading agreement for the United States. It hurts us with Canada, and it hurts us with Mexico.feedback

Armando Rios Piter

It seems like he's sitting at a poker table bluffing rather than making serious decisions. In front of a bluffer, you always have to maintain a firm and dignified position.feedback

Arturo Sarukhán

The generous analysis would be that he's playing brinkmanship and trying to up the ante. This is a way to sort of rattle the scabbard and say that he's got a saber in it and say, If you don't agree to my demands then I'm going to end up pressing the nuclear button.feedback

Eduardo Bravo

Really, you have to maintain hope and keep working to maintain the relationship. There's a lot of work to do.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It is my privilege to bring NAFTA up to date through renegotiation. It is an honor to deal with both [Mexican] President [Enrique] Peña Nieto and [Canadian] Prime Minister [Justin] Trudeau, and I believe that the end result will make all three countries stronger and better. I received calls from the President of Mexico and the Prime Minister of Canada asking to renegotiate NAFTA rather than terminate. I agreed. ... subject to the fact that if we do not reach a fair deal for all, we will then terminate NAFTA. Relationships are good-deal very possible!feedback

Sheila Hartney

I'm not crazy about the idea with a sugar tax like this. I like the part about early childhood education because it's clear to me that there is an enormous need.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It is my privilege to bring NAFTA up to date through renegotiation. It is an honor to deal with both [Mexican] President [Enrique] Peña Nieto and [Canadian] Prime Minister [Justin] Trudeau, and I believe that the end result will make all three countries stronger and better. I am very upset with NAFTA. I think NAFTA has been a catastrophic trade deal for the United States, trading agreement for the United States. It hurts us with Canada, and it hurts us with Mexico.feedback

Carlos Murrieta Cummings - Pemex

We need to take care of this from the production fields, at the refineries, at the distribution center, terminals, pipelines – everything. We have this problem in many different places, not just in one part.feedback

Dwight Dyer

The problem comes down to the fact that the rule of law is weak in Mexico. This is a part of the market where the rule of law really needs to work for the private sector to say, I really want to invest.feedback

Eduardo Guerrero

The truth is that Pemex didn't give much importance to it. It was regarded as marginal losses.feedback

Carlos Murrieta Cummings - Pemex

It's really a barrier for business. I don't want to sound optimistic because the problem is very hard. I don't want to minimize the problem.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I will build a great wall on our southern border, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.feedback

Jack Ablin

Expectations kind of sagged back to pre-election levels and now this tax rhetoric is rekindling investor optimism. Whether or not these plans come to pass is difficult to say. It is certainly not going to happen quickly.feedback

Salma Hayek

We have to talk about smart reforms because it's very necessary. There are smarter ways we can come up with to control immigration, and do immigration reform that is much more beneficial for America. For example, there's a lot of work for farmers in this country and there are not enough farmers for all the work there is. A lot of the people that do not want to be involved in the drug industry of Mexico are very skilled farmers; they do not want to participate in that so some of them are here.feedback

Chuck Schumer

It's really good news that the president seems to be taking the wall off the table. It would remove the prospect of a needless fight over a poison pill proposal that members of both parties don't support.feedback

Andre-Pierre Gignac

You've got no idea how I shouted at Barcelona's sixth goal in the Champions League. I screamed, ran, everything. My wife was even a little scared!feedback

Chuck Schumer

Democrats have been opposed to including the wall in this bill since the beginning of the negotiations. There's no plan to make Mexico pay for it as the President promised it would. There's no plan to resolve the eminent domain issues on the border. It's not a negotiation. No wall.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The wall is going to get built, by the way, . Just in case anybody has any question, the wall is going to get built, and the wall is going to stop drugs, and it's going to stop a lot of people from coming in that shouldn't be here, and it's going to have a huge effect on human trafficking, which is a tremendous problem in this world, a problem that nobody talks about, but it's a problem that's probably worse than any time in the history of this world.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Absolutely, I have. There are many people that want to break up the 9th Circuit. It's outrageous. Everybody immediately runs to the 9th Circuit. And we have a big country. We have lots of other locations. But they immediately run to the 9th Circuit. Because they know that's like, semi-automatic. You see judge shopping, or what's gone on with these people, they immediately run to the 9th Circuit. It's got close to an 80 percent reversal period, and what's going on in the 9th Circuit is a shame.feedback

Joe Manimbo

It just underscores how important the American economy is to both Mexico and Canada.feedback

Vassili Serebriakov - Crédit Agricole

There was a bit of 'buy the rumour sell the fact'. It's a long path toward this becoming a policy change, and markets recognise that.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Don't let the fake media tell you that I have changed my position on the WALL. It will get built and help stop drugs, human trafficking etc.feedback

Marc Chandler - Brown Brothers Harriman

NAFTA negotiations haven't even begun yet, and I think it'll maybe catch people by surprise. We all thought Trump was going to pick on Mexico.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The wall's going to get built, folks. In case anybody has any questions, the wall is going to get built. Soon. We're already preparing. We're doing plans, we're doing specifications, we're doing a lot of work on the wall, and the wall is going to get built.feedback

Kevin Donahue

Our budget has a degree of separation from the Congress that it did not have at the time of the last shutdown. We believe, in the event of a shutdown, that there will be no effect on city services, nor will we need to take the extraordinary step of declaring all employees essential.feedback

Patrick Leahy

The president says he's willing to shut down the government of the most powerful nation on earth if the US taxpayers won't pay for a wall now that Mexico says they won't. I don't think that's a very smart thing to do.feedback

Lim Teong Kim

In overall I'm very happy with the performance. The boys played against one of the best teams in the world. Of course it would have been better if it was a draw for us, unfortunately because of one mistake by our centre back and goalkeeper, we conceded. We had our chances in the first half, we could have scored at least two goals in the first half.feedback

Caren Cowan

The irreparable harm comes to the ranchers and the people of New Mexico. It saddens me to think that the court doesn't understand how much harm is coming to our ranching families and their livelihood.feedback

Kimberly Ross

Looking ahead, based on current activity growth trends in North America, we are forecasting revenues in the second quarter to modestly increase sequentially as activity growth in the U.S. onshore well construction product line is forecasted to more than offset the seasonal decline in Canada in ongoing activity reductions in the Gulf of Mexico.feedback

Sean Spicer

But he would make sure that that promise would be kept as far as the payment of it. That's right.feedback

Olivier Jager - ForwardKeys

People are finding alternative new destinations, and they are returning to others, previously blighted by dreadful events. However, in a world of shifting travel patterns, businesses that depend on travellers need to be able to readjust ever more quickly.feedback

Eugene Robinson

He can huff and puff, but his weasel words reveal desperation in the quest to fund a costly and ineffective idea.feedback

Aldo Rodríguez

We ended the strike because we reached a deal that includes better medical benefits.feedback

John Kelly

Trump "will be insistent. I think it goes without saying that the president has been pretty straightforward about his desire and the need for a border wall, so I would suspect that he'll do the right thing for sure, but I would suspect that he'll be insistent for funding.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The Democrats don't want money from budget going to border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members. Eventually, but at a later date so we can get started early, Mexico will be paying, in some form, for the badly needed border wall. ObamaCare is in serious trouble. The Dems need big money to keep it going -- otherwise it dies far sooner than anyone would have thought. I don't think anybody expects us to roll out bill language on Wednesday.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I don't know yet. People want the border wall. My base definitely wants the border wall, my base really wants it – you've been to many of the rallies. OK, the thing they want more than anything is the wall. I think $10 billion or less. And if I do a super-duper, higher, better, better security, everything else, maybe it goes a little bit more. But it's not going to be anywhere near [those] kind of numbers. And they're using those numbers; they're using the high numbers to make it sound impalatable [sic]. And the fact it's going to cost much less money.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Building a wall is the most expensive and least effective way to secure the border.feedback

Tom Donohue - US Chamber of Commerce

Yes. That's my opinion. That's my view. The bottom line is we need to move forward on this deal. It is critical to our economic and geopolitical well-being. Period.feedback

Tom Donohue - US Chamber of Commerce

We're not going to be fooling around with this deal in 2018. In fact, we haven't heard of that in a long time. Because if a country were to put a 35 percent tariff on products moving into their country, the guys you're trading with are going to do it the next morning.feedback

Tom Donohue - US Chamber of Commerce

(Trump) is looking at how to get things done. And I can tell you that he wants to speed this thing up.feedback

Chuck Schumer

This wall is un-thought-out and doesn't work. If the vast majority of his tax cuts are going to go to the wealthy, he won't be able to work with us.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The Wall is a very important tool in stopping drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth (and many others)! If … the wall is not built, which it will be, the drug situation will NEVER be fixed the way it should be! Eventually, but at a later date so we can get started early, Mexico will be paying, in some form, for the badly needed border wall.feedback

Dick Durbin

I hope the president will back off. To think that he would consider shutting down the government of the United States of America over this outlandish proposal of a border wall, which we can't even pay for at this point, and is opposed by Democrats and Republicans all along the border, that would be the height of irresponsibility.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The Democrats don't want money from budget going to border wall despite the fact that it will stop drugs and very bad MS 13 gang members. Would still beat Hillary in popular vote.feedback

Reince Priebus - Republican National Committee

This is what the president ran on. We want to get to a place this week where border-security money is being directed to the Department of Homeland Security so that we can begin surveillance and preliminary work, and then we will keep working on getting DHS what it needs for the structure.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

Yeah, and I think you saw his answer just in your little lead-in, which is: We don't know yet. I don't think anybody is trying to get to a shutdown. A shutdown is not a desired end. It's not a tool. It's not something we want to have. We want our priorities funded. And one of the biggest priorities during the campaign was border security — keeping Americans safe. And part of that was a border wall. I think what are you going to see Wednesday is some specific governing principles, some guidance.feedback

Marco Rubio

I think that's a fight worth having and a conversation and a debate worth having for 2018. And if we can do some of that now, that'd be great. But we cannot shut down the government right now.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Canada, what they've done to our dairy farm workers is a disgrace. It's a disgrace. I spent time with some of the farmers in Wisconsin, and, as you know, rules, regulations, different things have changed. And our farmers in Wisconsin and New York State are being put out of business, our dairy farmers. And that also includes what's happening along our northern border states with Canada, having to do with lumber and timber. The fact is, NAFTA–whether it's Mexico or Canada–is a disaster for our country.feedback

Marco Rubio

Uunderstand we're just trying to finish out the current cycle, the current budget year. And so I think that's a fight worth having and a conversation and a debate worth having for 2018. And if we can do some of that now, that'd be great. I hope not. Obviously we have to ask ourselves a very fundamental question. And that is: Is it acceptable? Can we live in a world where Kim Jung-un possesses not just nuclear weapons but the ability to deliver those weapons against the continental United States? Can we live in a world like that?feedback

Pedro Caixinha

I've had them in Mexico, Portugal, Greece, Romania and with national teams. I like those type of matches and I like matches which are more about the strategical side of the game, and I love that. I think I am going to be a guy who will enjoy the game and seeing if things are going to go the way we have worked with them along the week. It is going to be a fantastic environment and a fantastic football match. We need to be prepared to play it and win it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're going to stand up for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin. We are going to make some very big changes, or we are going to get rid of NAFTA once and for all.feedback

Paulo Abrao

We have clearly expressed our concerns over the problems in speeding up investigations, and we are concerned that there have not been any new findings since December 2015 – and that regarding the police in Huitzuco up to now no formal accusation has been made.feedback

Epifanio Alvarez

Here we are and if they come to kill us we will face them. We are not scared, we are full of anger. That is how it will be.feedback

Juan Carlos Osorio

Right now we have two main concerns. Trying to combine all that, plus preparing ourselves in altitude to play in Mexico is quite difficult for us to accommodate all those factors. However, we think that we are going to have two very good groups that will give the chance to compete, with a great chance to win all the games that we have.feedback

Juan Carlos Osorio

I think that MLS, in the infrastructure of the league, is the model to be followed by any other league in the world. The venues are incredible. I think the level of play has improved, and if there is somebody familiar with all that it's Bruce Arena. I think Mr. Arena brings to the table a very competitive team. He knows how to get the best out of the American players and it will be a very difficult team to beat in Azteca.feedback

Juan Carlos Osorio

(First), the teams that are going to represent us playing on May 27 against Croatia, and then June 1 here against Ireland, because it will all depend on how far our players go in their respective leagues. Also, we want to give the players, especially those that come from Europe at least two or three days off, maybe four.feedback

Juan Carlos Osorio

He's a very talented player. I would probably say he can do as many things as Giovani (Dos Santos), but with his right foot. In the final third, he's capable of passing, dribbling, going past people. He can identify when and how to play, and he's a player who is very influential and we have to be very aware of him.feedback

John G. Franchini

We're just a little boat in this ocean. If there's a tidal wave from Washington, it could scuttle us.feedback

Jan Hatzius

While the growth-positive aspects of the Trump agenda have hit rougher air, the growth-negative aspects also look less concerning. In particular, the specter of protectionism – a major source of concern during the transition especially for trade with China and Mexico – has clearly receded in recent months.feedback

Juan Carlos Osorio

Second, in the emotional part, we keep reiterating our belief that he's one of the best finishers in the world and at any moment he'll start scoring again.feedback

Juan Carlos Osorio

We think Javier is one of the best finishers in the world and we think he's unjustly criticized. So when (Chicharito) comes to the national team, the only thing we do is support him from a soccer standpoint. We surround him always with three options, two playing on the wings, and one player normally playing behind him. We don't give him all the responsibility to score goals, but rather to participate so he can be more influential in the games.feedback

Jose Galdamez

While you were governor you organized a complex scheme to introduce resources into the Mexican financial system pretending it was the product of the sale of land in Campeche.feedback

Fabiola Cortés

They never expected that they would lose and that's why they were so brazen. They were sure that there would be continuity. They had control of the press and they bought the votes. They can't just stand there with their arms crossed. But it would be suicide for them to say that all PRI governors are corrupt.feedback

Cuauhtemoc Blanco

Hopefully the PGR takes charge of the case, only them. Here there isn't anything, here I've mentioned several times that here you're defenseless. The governer manages everything, so you have to go to the PGR in Mexico (City) and hope the issue is really resolved because this is a disgrace.feedback

Laura Tyson

A lot of the engines that the U.S. sells, they go to Mexico, they're assembled in a vehicle, and then the vehicle comes back to the U.S. Is that an American product? Would that product be allowed to compete for a government contract? It should. It absolutely should. Otherwise, you would basically have taken away a major part of the U.S. supply chain in automobiles.feedback

Steven Landsburg

Initially, there is $X worth of stuff available for purchase in Mexico, and Mexicans want to buy $Y worth of stuff. If Y is less than X, the rest gets exported. If Y is bigger than X, the difference is imported.feedback

Carlos Mena

If there are agreements that affect the auction of government securities, the damage to the public treasury and to investors would be serious.feedback

Juan Manuel Montes

I was forced out because I was nervous and didn't know what to do or say, but my home is [in the United States]. I miss my job. I miss school. And I want to continue to work toward better opportunities. But most of all, I miss my family, and I have hope that I will be able to go back so I can be with them again.feedback

John Kelly

Let me be clear about marijuana: It is a potentially dangerous gateway drug that frequently leads to the use of harder drugs. Its use and possession is against federal law and until that law is changed by the United States Congress, we at DHS, along with the rest of the federal government, are sworn to uphold all the laws that are on the books. Yeah, marijuana is not a factor in the drug war. It's three things. Methamphetamine. Almost all produced in Mexico. Heroin. Virtually all produced in Mexico. And cocaine that comes up from further south.feedback

Nora Preciado

Juan Manuel was funneled across the border without so much as a piece of paper to explain why or how. The government shouldn't treat anyone this way -- much less someone who has DACA. No one should have to file a lawsuit to find out what happened to them.feedback

Bonnie-Jill Laflin

I never realized how those cheerleaders are just as popular as the players in some places! We were in Mexico doing an appearance and we got chased by locals in Mexico City who tried to knock our bus over, people were fanatical and fascinated by us.feedback

Gabriela Gaba Cortes

In a country of disappeared, Hugo Castro, you will not be one more. You will not be a statistic.feedback

Hugo Castro

It's like they're hunting me. Please, someone come here. Seriously, I was threatened. They want … they want to kill me. I need help! I need help! I can't move from here, they already confronted me. It's shameful. It's a consequence of trying to get a piece of the American Dream.feedback

Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva

Everything depends on strengthening Mexico, so we can confront aggression from abroad with strength.feedback

Cinthia Perez

The views that people have about a political change, they definitely impact everyone's consciousness.feedback

Preeti Shah

The welfare of U.S. citizens is one of the Department's highest priorities.feedback

Bruce Arena

Salt Lake City has always been a fantastic host for the national team. When you combine the elements of the fan support, the stadium and the altitude, it's a perfect match as we prepare for the critical World Cup qualifiers against Trinidad & Tobago and Mexico.feedback

Monica Armenta

Their priorities are distorted. We need to make a decision to put kids first. Especially when they're savings is about $500,000 to $750,000, when they're paying out a million dollars on, on public relations specialists and on lobbyists, a million dollars.feedback

Garrey Carruthers

I'm concerned that NMSU and the state's other universities now appear to be caught up in a political strategy. Clearly, higher education in the state must be funded, and we hope both sides will work expeditiously to resolve their differences.feedback

Alberto Elias Beltran

In our experience in the attorney general's office on extraditions with Guatemala, we're talking about six months to a year.feedback

Omar Garcia Harfuch

Investigators "identified many homes, telephone numbers and vehicles related to people who supported Javier Duarte from Mexico City in the logistics of his stay and movement in Guatemala. During the investigation, it came to light that various private airlines offering services to the region were charged with transporting (Duarte) to different points in Guatemala.feedback

Lorenzo Meyer

This is a plus for Pena Nieto because it goes against this accusation that he and [Interior Minister] Osorio Chong were really fine with Duarte fleeing, hiding and not knowing anything about him.feedback

Søren Skou - Maersk Line

The main purpose of the terminal is to be a gateway terminal for the Mexico City market. The U.S. administration has made a number of statements that impact our business on the positive side. Then there are the discussions about trade deals, and some of the rhetoric seems more protectionist…It's really hard for us to judge how this will affect our business.feedback

Christopher Rogers - Panjiva

The port is a microcosm of global trade flows. It's very exposed to the auto industry.feedback

Miguel Ángel Dominguez

I've never seen a terminal this technologically advanced. It's much safer, much more dynamic, much more mechanized.feedback

Miguel Ángel Díaz

Talking bad about Duarte has turned into the national pastime. He's become the laughing stock of Mexico, emblematic of the corruption here.feedback

Amalia García

Unlike what's happening in the United States, this is your home.feedback

Brent Cooper

We realized after 30 days he may have to go for a refill. So we hope people at pharmacies or medical clinics will know to look out for him now. He was very serious about making sure he took it every day. [He] planned this in such a way that he had a 24-hour head start, easily enough time for him to make it to Mexico. It's possible that he's playing the role of a missionary in that area.feedback

Maria Luisa Jimenez

When I saw these spiders for the first time, I was very impressed by their size.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The secretary-general and I had a productive discussion about what more NATO can do in the fight against terrorism. I complained about that a long time ago and they made a change, and now they do fight terrorism. I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete. The car industry is not going to leave us anymore, believe me. The car industry is staying in our country. They were leaving – if I didn't win this election, you would have lost your car industry to Mexico and to other countries. They're not leaving anymore, believe me. There's retribution if they leave. There was no retribution.feedback

Cole Whittle

I will never not try to force everyone to eat Mexican food. So when we play in Mexico, we take it very seriously, we have about six meals a day.feedback

Jerry Leahy

It is important for us to contact his family and give the judge information so that he can set a reasonable bond for my client.feedback

Antonio García

It is a man, but we don't know more. The impact of the fall makes it more difficult to be able to identify him or the wounds he suffered. I can't recall anything like this happening before.feedback

Matt Amato - Spike

He demanded that we dance every Friday night at a placed called La Cita. Every Friday night, no matter what happened, we just had to go dance, and the more people we could bring, the better. It would just be this kind of tribal stomping around – and he was always so happy doing that.feedback

Mia Doi Todd

He liked to have long tables with lots of people. It was like a secret space, where you're safe … a magical little vortex. I mean, of course he slept, but there were times – particularly when he was working – that it was just hard, because he was just simply like a washing machine on spin cycle.feedback

Mia Doi Todd

It was so shocking because he was like a superhuman figure. But in the same way that Jimi Hendrix passed away, these people who just lived their lives so fully like a James Dean character … just burned up more quickly.feedback

Alexandra Lippmann

Cumbia fans speak through the sonidero's voice to shout out their family and recognize villages left behind. The sonideros' voices create a simultaneous sonic presence between Mexico and the United States, between here and there.feedback

Thomas Sleight - US Grains Council

You have buyer-seller relationships that have built up over decades on very good infrastructure logistics. To replace that overnight is not going to happen.feedback

Greg Chen

Once again, Attorney General Sessions is scaring the public by linking immigrants to criminals despite studies showing that immigrants commit crimes at lower rates than the native born. He and President [Donald] Trump are wasting more federal taxpayer dollars going after illegal border crossers instead of protecting the American public.feedback

Martin Hernandez

If the first quarter report is better than expected, it could go even higher.feedback

Andrew Teich

DHS has been a long time user of technologies to help detect and identify border incursions. Thermal imaging technology has been recognized as a very powerful tool in that mission in that it operates day or night.feedback

Sunil Gulati

We will bid together. The general parameters of that bid are a World Cup of 80 games, three-quarters of which would be played in the United States, 60 games in the United States and ten each in Canada and Mexico. The final decision on those things are up to FIFA, it's their tournament.feedback

Sunil Gulati

Because I couldn't get the round of 16 all in the U.S. Negotiation. Bigger stadiums generally – Azteca (in Mexico City) is obviously a bigger stadium. Those all came down to a discussion, and that's where we ended up. A World Cup in North America, with 60 games in the United States, will be, by far, the most successful World Cup in the history of FIFA in terms of economics. The economic power of the American market – we've got 500 million people in these three countries – this will be an extraordinarily successful World Cup on financial and economic grounds.feedback

Sunil Gulati

The key principles in that discussions were that we felt that we should host the lion's share of the games, and if we went alone we had potentially the strongest bid. Mexico and Canada had then to assess the same thing we did, the likelihood and so on. We wanted also – all three of us – parity between Canada and Mexico because we're true partners in this. There was a lot of negotiating about it, and at different numbers one or more of us may have chosen to bid alone.feedback

Victor Montagliani

I think we all knew that this was a lot more than venues and games and who gets games. This was about an opportunity of a lifetime for all three countries, and you know what? I'm confident that we're going to pull it off.feedback

Victor Montagliani

I think in the end it's a fair result, and listen, there's going to be people in Canada that are going to be upset at me too.feedback

Victor Montagliani

It wasn't so much a deal – we all know what needed to get done, we all knew what was also fair, and what also was in the best interests of the World Cup. You can't look at it from a proprietary standpoint. You've also got to be realistic. The U.S. infrastructure is unbelievable. They could host the World Cup in California if they wanted to.feedback

Sunil Gulati

That's critical because most of FIFA's revenue comes from one event. The 209 people voting all get funds from FIFA, and so they should also recognized that FIFA's finances – on which many countries rely – will be greatly enhanced by a tournament in North America.feedback

Victor Montagliani

Listen, Mexico's a tremendous footballing country and we know that. But you know what? (Canada) is a tremendous footballing country. The stats bear it out. In Brazil and South Africa, the No. 1 (non-participating) country that attended those World Cups was Canada. And if you factor in participating countries we're No. 10, so it's not like we're not consumers of football as well.feedback

Sunil Gulati

I think it's safe to say both (Canada and Mexico) would have liked more (games), and they would say it was probably hard to sell me on 60. In the end, it was a discussion, a negotiation, but a very friendly one. This wasn't, OK, we're walking away – do it with the other one,' or any of that. It was quite friendly, but not easy because it's a zero sum game on the number of games obviously.feedback

Sunil Gulati

If you have a 90 percent [chance] – or whatever the numbers are, I'm not saying it's 90 percent – of getting 75 percent of the tournament, or a 75 percent chance of getting 100 percent, what do you do? That was part of the analysis and calculus, but the other part was we think there's a benefit beyond football, beyond soccer, to a joint bid, especially with Mexico – which, as I mentioned, is fully supported by the president, which is a big plus.feedback

Decio de Maria

I think with what we have agreed to today, we'll be able to offer the Mexicans in Mexico a great World Cup, and the Mexicans in the United States will have the other 60 matches in the United States to enjoy (the World Cup).feedback

Decio de Maria

I remember well the World Cup of 1970. I remember well how Estadio Azteca was built. In 1986 it fell to us to host, I remember that World Cup well. Today, to be able to give the Mexicans, Americans and Canadians an opportunity to experience a World Cup in Mexico is a great honor.feedback

Decio de Maria

My children didn't see the World Cup in 1970, my children didn't see the 1986 World Cup, but they will see the World Cup in 2026, along with my grandchildren. That's the blessing of soccer. To be able to make that magic, and offer it to the world.feedback

Sunil Gulati

We have the luxury of being able to pick from stadiums and cities. It's one that very few countries in the world have. And given what's happened in the last few World Cups and some of the Olympic Games, the thought of building sport facilities that don't have a long-term use is not one that's particularly inviting for anyone.feedback

Decio de Maria

The United States doesn't need us to host a World Cup. That is the message. On day one, we didn't have a single game. Today, we have 10.feedback

Sunil Gulati

It makes our bid stronger, in terms of the 209 members that eventually decide. There's a pragmatic part of it, and that's the pragmatic part. We clearly between the three countries have 40, 50 stadiums that meet FIFA's qualifications and criteria, as well as cities and hotels and air. The other part of it is we think it's terrific for football in the region and soccer in region, both for Canada, Mexico and the U.S., given the close relationships we have already.feedback

Sunil Gulati

We think in this interesting world in which we live and the place we're holding this particular press conference and the Statue of Liberty outside, and a whole bunch of things along those lines, from a social perspective it's a positive.feedback

Sunil Gulati

Regarding of anything else that may have been said during the campaign or after the fact, I'm not going to speak for the president on those. [Press Secretary] Mr. [Sean] Spicer gets to do that every day.feedback

Decio de Maria

Yes, it's going to be 10 games in Mexico, but it's also going to be games in Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, Phoenix. And for us, it's home.feedback

Sunil Gulati

This is a milestone day for U.S. Soccer and for CONCACAF. We gave careful consideration to the prospect of bidding for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, and ultimately feel strongly this is the right thing for our region and for our sport. Along with our partners from the Canadian Soccer Association and the Federación Mexicana de Fútbol, we are confident that we will submit an exemplary bid worthy of bringing the FIFA World Cup back to North America. The United States, Mexico and Canada have individually demonstrated their exceptional abilities to host world-class events.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

They're supposed to be educational programs, right? And that's what they're supposed to do. They're supposed to help kids who don't get fed at home get fed so they do better in school.feedback

Jennifer Ramo

People on both sides of the aisle were genuinely horrified that schools were allowed to throw out children's food or make them work to pay off debt. It sounds like some scene from 'Little Orphan Annie,' but it happens every day.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

Guess what? There's no demonstrable evidence they're actually doing that. There's no demonstrable evidence they're actually helping results, helping kids do better in school.feedback

Michael Padilla

I made Mrs Ortiz and Mrs Jackson, our school lunch ladies, my best friends. Thank goodness they took care of me, but I had to do other things like mop the floor in the cafeteria. It was really noticeable that I was one of the poor kids in the school.feedback

Jim Berrian

The first evidence we found of this species was a shed exoskeleton in the cracks of a rock overhang. The exoskeleton was abnormally big and I could tell by the eye pattern that it was in a group of spiders, wandering spiders from the Family Ctenidae, with very few species in Baja California Sur, in Mexico. I knew the spider was unusual, but needed to get Dr. Maria Luisa Jimenez to look at it to make sure.feedback

Gerardo Reyes - Univision Communications

I have never known of a drug trafficker who has had such a long career, and from each stage of his life there are accounts that have allowed us to construct a portrait of his personality and psychological characteristics. It's normal; some things we agreed on, some things we didn't. We have avoided the Robin Hood image that many have wanted to project on him. He came from a poor background and was obsessed with not returning to it, and this obsession was also extremely violent.feedback

Daniel Posada

Colombia was a good option, because we have well-trained crews and it is very similar in appearance to Mexico.feedback

John Kelly

It's a visual deterrent ... a slow-down, which gives the security guards on the inside a chance to respond. They say, Oh, it's OK for all these people to walk through Jim Chilton's ranch. I mean, they have no skin in the game.feedback

Donald J. Trump

If my speeches ever get a little off, I just go: 'We will build a wall!' You know, if it gets a little boring, if I see people starting to sort of maybe thinking about leaving – I can sort of tell the audience – I just say, We will build the wall,' and they go nuts. And Mexico will pay for the wall!' But – ah, but I mean it. But I mean it.feedback

Jim Cramer

If you believe the president can get the economy accelerating again without causing a trade war with China or Mexico, and you think he can really deregulate heavily, then Schneider could be a terrific stock to own, but if you're worried about the economy or our trade policies, well, I don't know. Maybe this isn't the right one for you. Personally, I'd wait and see, but now you know what you need in order to make up your mind.feedback

Jack Ablin

Mexico could be an interesting play for investors who think that the Trump agenda is going to continue to get pushed out. We've got a Mexican peso that is trading much cheaper than it was before the election, [and] we've got a Mexican stock market that is certainly cheap relative to the S&P 500. In fact, Mexico has been one of the best-performing markets this year and if the Trump agenda gets pushed out, it will likely continue.feedback
