Trump after surprise meet with Mexico president: Mexico WILL let me build the wall

Donald Trump claimed Wednesday after a landmark summit with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto that America’s southern neighbor has agreed that the U.S. has the right to build a wall along the nations’ 2,000-mile border.

‘Having a secure border is a sovereign right and mutually beneficial,’ Trump told reporters in Mexico City, listing the second of what he called ‘five shared goals.’

‘We recognize and respect the right of either country to build a physical barrier or wall on any of its borders to stop the illegal movement of people, drugs and weapons.’

‘Cooperation toward achieving this shared objective – and it will be shared – of safety for all citizens, is paramount for both the United States and to Mexico,’ Trump said.
