Mexico's president: "No way" we'd pay for a wall

“There is no way to have Mexico pay the — a wall, but any decisions inside United States is a decision of its government,” Peña Nieto told CNN’s Fareed Zakaria in an interview that aired Sunday on Zakaria’s program. “There is no way that Mexico can pay [for] a wall like that.”

Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump has since the start of his presidential campaign called for the construction of a wall along the U.S.’ southern border, designed to keep Mexicans from coming across the border illegally.

Peña Nieto also hit Trump for his characterizations of Mexicans, saying he “cannot agree with such a generalization for Mexicans” being rapists, drug dealers and criminals.
