Trump: Talks with Mexico Leader Would Have Been 'Fruitless'

Trump: Talks with Mexico Leader Would Have Been 'Fruitless'

Thursday, 26 January 2017 03:32 PM EST

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."
