On Mexican soil Donald Trump defended the right of the United States to build a massive border wall

Pena Nieto did not repeat such criticism Wednesday, but acknowledged Trump’s comments had “hurt and affected Mexicans.”

Trump stayed on script after the meeting, reading a statement from notes and politely answering shouted questions from reporters about his promise to force Mexico to pay for a wall along the border between the two countries.

“We did discuss the wall. We didn’t discuss payment of the wall,” Trump said.

But within hours of Trump’s visit, a dispute arose over the most contentious part of the billionaire’s plans to secure the U.S. southern border — his insistence that Mexico must pay to build that wall.
