    Trump, in meeting with Mexican president, again insists Mexico will pay for the wall

    As he sat next to the Mexican president.

    In his first meeting as president with his Mexican counterpart, Donald Trump on Friday said he "absolutely" intends for Mexico to pay for the controversial wall he wants to build along the United States' southern border, setting off a furor in Mexico over a goal his own administration has largely abandoned.

    Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto met on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit here, amid sharp disagreements over trade and immigration. Some officials had hoped the brief encounter could help heal badly strained relations between the two neighbors.

    The proposed wall continues to make that difficult.

    As journalists were allowed in to see the two leaders take their seats, one reporter asked Trump if he still wanted Mexico to pay for the wall.

    "Absolutely," Trump said.

    Mexico has repeatedly said it will not pay for a new border barrier, and Trump’s words set off a furious reaction in Mexico City.

    Mexican officials, however, decided to ignore the remark, at least publicly.

    Good idea!
