Immediately after the presidential debate Monday night, a Mexican beer company had an ad on Spanish-language Univision mocking GOP nominee Donald Trump’s border wall proposal.
The 30-second ad was for Tecate beer, and depicts a group of Americans in California and a group of Mexicans in Mexico gathering at either side of the border, divided by a short wall. Once both the parties reach the wall, a beer is put on it and the two groups merrily greet each other, hop over the wall, and share drinks.
Trump has made building a border wall between the U.S. and Mexico a top priority policy throughout his presidential campaign. The GOP presidential nominee has also claimed that he can and will get Mexico to pay for the construction of a border wall.
Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto tweeted after meeting Trump in Mexico City that his country would not pay for a border wall. Former Mexican presidents Vicente Fox and Felipe Calderon have both said they are opposed to a border wall. In contrast to the current and past Mexican leaders, former Mexican Minister of Foreign Affairs Jorge Castaneda believes that Trump has, “many ways of getting many Mexicans to pay for the wall.”
