Donald Trump and Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto appeared together in a joint press conference in Mexico City following a closed-door meeting Wednesday.
Addressing reporters from side-by-side podiums, Trump and Nieto talked about their “open and constructive” conversation.
Trump, who has repeatedly derided Mexico since announcing his presidential candidacy last year, said the U.S. had the right to build a wall between the two countries, but declined to say his oft-repeated line that Mexico would pay for the wall.
“We did discus the wall. We didn’t discuss payment of the wall,” Trump said.
