Mexican president Enrique Nieto canceled his meeting with US President Donald Trump. The meeting was set for next week about the wall that Trump wants build on the US-Mexico borderline. President Nieto said yesterday, “I regret and reject the decision of the US to build the wall”.

Trump tweeted this morning:

“The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers of jobs and companies lost. If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting”
