Donald Trump tried to press the President of Mexico to stop saying publicly that the Mexican government would never pay for the construction of a wall along the US's southern border. Mr Trump had promised during his presidential campaign that he would build a border wall, but the project has faced contracting delays and funding issues since he was sworn into office in January. In a call with Mr Trump on 27 January, a week after the US leader’s inauguration, President Enrique Peña Nieto said his “position has been and will continue to be very firm” that Mexico cannot pay for the continuous barrier along its 2,000-mile border with the US.
