MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says Mexican officials he’s talked with during a trade mission there are concerned not just with comments made by Republican Donald Trump, but positions taken by the Democratic presidential candidates as well.

Walker said during a conference call Wednesday that Mexican officials “didn’t distinguish” concerns they raised about how trade would be affected under the next president. Walker says “From their standpoint, they were concerned about any of them.”

Walker was asked if anyone he’s meeting with during the weeklong trade mission asked about Trump’s promise to build a border wall and have Mexico pay for it. Walker says “none specifically asked about that in those terms. In general they’re concerned about trade.”

Walker did not say who specifically in Mexico he had spoken with.
