Mexico’s president says his country won’t pay for Trump’s wall

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto says that “of course” his country will not pay for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. President-elect Donald Trump insists that Mexico will pay for the structure.

Pena Nieto said during a gathering of Mexico’s ambassadors and consuls that it’s evident his country has “some differences with the next government of the United States, like the topic of the wall that Mexico of course will not pay for.”

He adds that “basic principles” like “our sovereignty” are “not negotiable.”

Trump insisted at a press conference Wednesday that Mexico will indeed pay for the wall he wants to build along the southern border to stop illegal immigration.

Pena Nieto says that any negotiations with the U.S. must include a commitment to stop the flow of illegal arms and money from the U.S. into Mexico.
