Trump speaks with Mexican president after quake
MEXICO CITY (AP) — U.S. President Donald Trump has spoken to the president of Mexico in the aftermath of a massive earthquake that struck that country.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders says that Trump «had a lengthy call» with Enrique Peña Nieto on Wednesday.
More than 220 people have been confirmed killed by the 7.1 magnitude earthquake, which struck Tuesday.
It is Mexico’s deadliest earthquake since 1985. Rescue workers are digging through rubble of collapsed schools, homes and apartment buildings looking for survivors.
Trump received some criticism for waiting three days to call Peña Nieto after a previous earthquake struck Mexico earlier this month.
Trump blamed it on the Mexican president’s poor cell service in a mountainous region.
