Trump spent part of his time this weekend being a colossal jerk.

Mexico offered help to Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, and pointed out to Trump that they, as a sovereign nation, are not in the habit of negotiating trade deals via Twitter.

Via The Hill:

"As we have done in the past, Mexico stands with Texas in this difficult moment," said Carlos Gonzalez Gutierrez, the Mexican consul general in Austin.

"The government of Mexico 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," the Mexican Secretariat of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
