Trump insists that the Mexican finance the wall

Trump insists that the Mexican finance the wall”

While seated next to Mexican President Enrique Pea Nieto during the G-20 summit of leading world powers in Germany, U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters he "absolutely" still wants to make good on one of his signature campaign promises. Both leaders said the meeting was productive, but neither offered specific details about the discussions. Trump reportedly referred to Nieto as his "friend" and said the pair was making "very good progress" on discussions of transnational issues like the NAFTA negotiations.

The us president has hammered on several occasions that he would build a wall along the 3142 kilometres away from the border that separates the United States from Mexico, to stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

In tweets following the meeting, Mr Peña Nieto said he spoke with Mr Trump about issues surrounding migration, security and economic development - including the importance of "modernising Nafta".

Erecting a Mexican-funded wall along the US southern border to curb illegal immigration has been a priority and faltering promise for the current administration. The foreign minister said the leaders' conversation centered around the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement between US, Mexico, and Canada. Pena Nieto's spokesman Eduardo Sanchez called in to Mexican broadcaster Radio Formula from Hamburg, stating that the two presidents did not discuss the wall.

Trump, who met with Pena Nieto during the campaign previous year, insists that even if US taxpayers have to cover the costs upfront, Mexico will eventually be forced to reimburse the U.S.in some way.

Does he still plan to build the wall - and does he still want Mexico to pay for it, reporters wondered.

The us president, Donald Trump has reiterated Friday its willingness to see the Mexico fund his project of wall-crossing, before a meeting with his mexican counterpart at the G20. Nieto turned his head toward Trump, seemingly in disbelief.
