In an interview Thursday with CNN's 'New Day,' Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine said Donald Trump was an "amateur" at diplomacy. He said Trump "choked," in his conversation about getting Mexico to pay for the wall. "When he looks President Peña Nieto in the eye, he couldn’t even bring that up," Kaine said.
"Donald Trump did kind of a photo-op fly-by, where he didn’t even have the nerve at the last minute to bring up this issue about the wall," Kaine said. "This is the central piece of his campaign – immigration and deportation and we’re going to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it. But when he looks President Peña Nieto in the eye, he couldn’t even bring that up. That was a choke and I think that it shows the diplomacy is not for amateurs and Donald Trump is an amateur."
