President of Mexico, Enrico Pena Nieto canceled official visit to Washington D.C. , where he was scheduled to meet the U.S. President Donald Trump.
Neito’s decision was announced a day after President Trump said his plans to build a wall along U.S.-Mexican border. Mexican President Nieto said he had canceled January 31 trip, after Trump suggested he should do just that. “If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting,” the US president wrote on Twitter on Thursday morning. Nieto met with Trump in Mexico City in September, while Trump was yet on presidential campaign in the U.S. The building of the wall could cost, $12 to $15 billion. But, the White House looks for another term for the visit and it would keep the dialogue open with Mexico.
President Trump would tomorrow appear at joint news conference with the British Prime minister Theresa May. Trump could announce in recent days, immigration restrictions from seven countries in the Middle East and Africa.
