Trump blames poor cell reception for delayed call to Mexican president

Written by Lisa

President Donald Trump said Thursday that he spoke to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to send his condolences as the country recovers from a major earthquake, and blamed the delay in contacting him on poor cell reception there.

“Spoke to President of Mexico to give condolences on terrible earthquake,” Trump said on Twitter. “Unable to reach for 3 days b/c of his cell phone reception at site.”

The 8.1-magnitude earthquake off the southern coast of Mexico, near the state of Chiapas, hit on Sept. 7, and at least 90 people have since been confirmed dead.
