President Trump says it would be “fruitless” to go ahead with a planned meeting with Mexico’s president without serious discussions about a border wall and a renegotiation of NAFTA. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto announced that he is pulling out of next week’s meeting and insisted that Mexico will not pay for the wall. At a Republican presidential retreat in Philadelphia, Trump suggested that the decision to cancel the DC summit was mutual. Trump said he will take a “different route” if Mexico does not start treating the U.S. “fairly, with respect.”
