Trump 'Absolutely' Still Wants Mexico To Pay For A Wall

Trump 'Absolutely' Still Wants Mexico To Pay For A Wall

Trump was asked if Mexico would have to pay for a controversial border wall between the two countries the USA president has touted since he was a presidential candidate. "But I think we made very good progress", Trump said.

In recent months, Donald Trump's antagonism toward Mexico seems to have taken a backseat to his many other feuds-with Germany, Mika Brzezinski, and CNN, among others-not to mention the prospect of military conflict in North Korea.

Building a southern border wall and having Mexico pay for it was a key part of Trump's campaign. The bilateral meeting marked the first time that the two leaders had met personally since August 2016.

As the two leaders began their meeting, a reporter asked Trump if he still wanted Mexico to pay for a wall to control the flow of undocumented immigrants into the US, a proposal that was one of Trump's biggest applause lines during the presidential campaign.

"We didn't touch on that subject in our conversation, which lasted about half an hour - partly because we have a well-known, significant difference of opinion on that", he said.

Federal Bureau of Investigation arrest suspect in case of missing Chinese scholar
The FBI, while monitoring Christensen, hears him "explaining how he kidnapped" Zhang , according to the affidavit. Christensen's first court appearance will be on Monday, July 3, in a federal court in Urbana, Illinois.

Instead, the White House said the two men discussed "regional challenges" like drug trafficking, illegal migration, and the crisis in Venezuela.

On Jan. 27, both Trump and Nieto issued a joint statement agreeing not to discuss the matter in public after they had exchanged a war of words on the proposal that resulted in a cancelled diplomatic meeting.

"We've all had a very successful day and a very interesting day", Trump said before being asked about the border wall. "And Pena Nieto should have called him, right there, to his face".

One topic not on the agenda at the meeting in Hamburg is Trump's pledge to build a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border, Videgaray said in an earlier television interview. Nieto turned his head toward Trump, seemingly in disbelief.
