President Trump told congressional Republicans on Thursday that he couldn’t meet with the president of Mexico until Mexico started treating the United States fairly.

On Thursday, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto announced that he was canceling an upcoming meeting President Trump over Trump’s executive action that would start construction of a wall between the two countries.

Trump told Congressional Republicans about the now canceled meeting, “The president of Mexico and myself have agreed to cancel our planned meeting scheduled for next week. Unless Mexico is going to treat the United States fairly, with respect, such a meeting would be fruitless, and I want to go a different route.”
