No Time for Foolishness: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto Cancels Meeting With Trump

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto Cancels Meeting in Washington D.C. With Trump

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has canceled next week's meeting with President Trump directly after POTUS told Mexico to scrap the visit if it won't pay for the wall along the U.S.-Mexican border.

Nieto tweeted from his account this morning after being pressured from outraged citizens. "This morning we have informed the White House that I will not attend the meeting scheduled for next Tuesday with the @POTUS," he wrote in Spanish.

On Thursday morning, Trump accused Mexico of unfair trade with the United States and told Peña Nieto to stay home if Mexico won't pay for the wall. Nieto released a video on his Twitter account Wednesday night saying Mexico wouldn't pay for the wall.

"I regret and reject the decision of the U.S. to build the wall," Peña Nieto said. "Mexico reaffirms its friendship with the people of the United States and its willingness to reach agreements with its government."

On Thursday, leaders of the Republican-controlled US Congress said they planned to move ahead on funding the wall, which they projected would cost between $15 billion and $19 billion.
