Mexican Government Offers Help After Hurricane Harvey

The Mexican government has offered aid for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

This comes after President Trump continued his "Mexico will pay for the wall tirade" on Twitter.

Mexico's foreign ministry issued a statement that they will not pay for, under any a circumstances a physical wall between them and the US.

However, their statement continued with an offer of something they would pay for.

"The Mexican government takes this opportunity to express its full solidarity with the people and government of the United States for the damages caused by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and express that we have offered the US government help and cooperation to be provided by different Mexican government agencies to deal with the impacts of this natural disaster — as good neighbors should always do in difficult times."

Texas governor Greg Abbott and the US State Department said they will be taking up Mexico on their offer.

Mexico has previously offered help to the US following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina by sending soldiers, medical personnel, engineers, and aid to the stricken citizens of Louisiana and Mississippi.
