Talks with Mexico leader would have been ‘fruitless’, says Trump
US President Donald Trump said Thursday that talks with his Mexican counterpart Enrique Pena Nieto — now called off — would have been “fruitless” if Mexico is unwilling to pay for a wall along the countries’ common border.
“The president of Mexico and myself have agreed to cancel our planned meeting scheduled for next week,” Trump told Republican lawmakers at a retreat in Philadelphia.
“Unless Mexico is going to treat the United States fairly with respect, such a meeting would be fruitless, and I want to go a different route. I have no choice.”
