    Massive anti-Trump rallies staged across Mexico

    Feb. 13, Mexican City: People in Mexico have held massive protests against US President Donald Trump, hitting back at his anti-Mexican rhetoric and vows to make Mexico pay for a "big, beautiful" border wall between the two countries.

    Marches got under way on Sunday in some 20 cities across the country, including the capital, Mexico City, where thousands of people flooded a central avenue dressed in white and waving the red, white and green of the Mexican flag.

    It really marks the point in which the promises of his campaign - building a border wall that he expects Mexico to pay for, import tariffs of Mexican goods heading to the US and mass deportation of Mexican migrants - are starting to look like they could be a reality under President Donald Trump, media reports said.

    Dozens of universities, business associations and civic organisations backed the protest.

    US-Mexican relations have plunged to their lowest point in decades since Trump took office on January 20.

    Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto cancelled a January 31 trip to Washington over Trump's insistence that Mexico pay for the wall.
