Donald Trump blasted by Mexican president as ‘a huge threat’ after pledge to send illegal Mexicans back to Mexico

Enrique Pena Nieto issued the furious response to a major immigration speech from the Republican presidential nominee in Phoenix, Arizona, in which he depicted illegal immigrants as dangerous and insisted all “illegal aliens” would be subject to deportation.
