After leaked transcripts revealed that President Donald Trump begged Mexican President Peña Nieto to stop saying that Mexico won’t pay for Trump’s border wall, Twitter exploded in mockery and disgust.
Users blasted Trump’s followers for their uncritical acceptance of everything Trump says while others suggested this is just the White House’s pattern — to float extravagant lies, get caught and then re-spin the facts to attack the media or “leakers.”
Check them out, below:
Only brainwashed Trumpsters ever believed that Mexico would pay for the wall.

You actually begged Mexico's President 2 stop telling the truth (they are NOT paying for the wall) U need 2 work on your begging skills.

And Mexican President Nieto response is "as soon as you stop saying Mexico will pay for the wall I'll stop saying I won't"

Of course it is. Anyone thinking Mexico would pay for this redundant wall lacks even the rudimentary ability to think critically. https://t.co/Vg69wtK96H

https://t.co/MiVugBn6NP So Trump knew he lied whenever he promised Mexico would pay for the wall. Expect an outcry from Trumpers any minute/

Everyone knew the "Mexico will pay for the wall" line was a lie. I think maybe even the people chanting it at rallies knew, but didn't care.
