Last month, Mexico issued a statement to offer help to Texas as Hurricane Harvey flooded Houston by heavy rains for how many days. They offered to send food, generators and medical kits to help Houston recover from the destruction brought by Hurricane Harvey. Mexico said that “as good neighbors should always do in trying times.”

On Monday, according to the Mexican Foreign Ministry, Mexico just pulled off their offer to help Texas as they want to focus on the people affected by the deadly 8.1 magnitude earthquake that hits Mexico on September 8, 2017, and by Hurricane Katia.

In a statement issued, the ministry said the decision was taken in light of the changed circumstances in both countries, and the fact that the need for help in Texas had diminished.

"We are grateful for Mexico's offer of assistance in the aftermath of Harvey, and fully understand and support the decision to redirect their resources back home in the wake of this deadly earthquake," said Abbott's spokesman, John Wittman, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The deadly earthquake was the strongest earthquake ever reported in the history after 100 years.

The aftermath of the deadly earthquake

It has been reported that the over 90 people were killed and more than 2.5 million people estimated were affected when the deadly earthquake hits Mexico, according to the foreign ministry.

Most people died were in southern Mexican states of Oaxaca and Chiapas as it is the epicenter of the earthquake. Many of the properties were destroyed, buildings were totally ruined and wrecked a lot of homes leaving most people homeless. Search and operations are still ongoing to many areas as many people were trapped mostly in rural areas.

While Mexico has been doing its best to survive, another natural disaster occurs when Hurricane Katia, a Category 1 storm, landfalls on Friday night leaving at least two people dead. Hurricane Katia has already been downgraded to a tropical storm right after its landfall.

Donald Trump did not offer US aid to Mexico

The United States of America president, Donald Trump, did not offer his condolences after two natural disasters hit Mexico.

Other officials like American mayors and governors already offered help and support but the US President did not offer US aid to Mexico. This is because Trump has blamed Mexico for sending criminals and drugs to the United States and for stealing American jobs.
