On Thursday, following President Donald Trump's order Wednesday to start construction on a border wall "immediately," Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto announced he was canceling his upcoming trip to Washington, D.C.
"Mexico does not believe in walls," Peña Nieto announced in a video statement. "I have said time and time again, Mexico will not pay for any wall."
Trump responded via his favorite medium. "The U.S. has a 60 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico. It has been a one-sided deal from the beginning of NAFTA with massive numbers... of jobs and companies lost," the president tweeted. "If Mexico is unwilling to pay for the badly needed wall, then it would be better to cancel the upcoming meeting."
