The tycoon says that he likes the Mexican spirit, after saying that the country sends rapists and murderers to the U.S.

"I like Mexico," expressed entrepreneur Donald Trump on Twitter, days after his comments against the Mexican immigrants caused a great deal of controversy and the rejection of several politicians, artists, and the Mexican social sector in general.

On his Twitter account, Trump expressed: "I like Mexico and love the spirit of Mexican people, but we must protect our borders from people, from all over, pouring into the U.S."

On his speech on June 16 Trump expressed that Mexico is sending rapists and other criminals to live in the United States.

"They're sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing their problems," he said back then, when he announced his intentions to run for president on the Republican ticket. "They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some I assume are good people, but I speak to border guards and they tell us what we are getting."

Trump added that he would build "a great, great wall on our southern border" and "make Mexico pay for that wall."

The entrepreneur also gave an 180 degree change of language when he insisted again that Mexico is destroying the US economy, but now because its leaders are smarter than those in the U.S.

"Mexico is killing the United States economically because their leaders and negotiators are FAR smarter than ours. But nobody beats Trump!", he said.

He also changed his comments about the entry of criminals from Mexico to the U.S.

"Druggies, drug dealers, rapists, and killers are coming across the southern border. When will the U.S. get smart and stop this travesty?", expressed the tycoon.
