CNN's Wolf Blitzer thrice claimed on his early afternoon program on 26 January 2017 that diplomatic relations between the United States and Mexico had entered a "crisis", due to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto cancelling his upcoming meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump. Blitzer trumpeted "the breaking news: a major diplomatic rift — a crisis, I dare say — between the United States and Mexico." He later stated that "it sounds like that crisis in U.S.-Mexican relations is going to continue," and emphasized that "clearly, this crisis not going away."
