President Donald Trump reiterated on Friday that he still wants Mexico to pay for a lengthy border wall separating America from its southern neighbor.

And he did it with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto sitting just an arm’s length away.

Reporters had a few moments to pepper the two leaders with questions as their bilateral meeting on the margins of the G20 summit got underway.

‘Mr. Trump do you still want Mexico to pay for the wall?’ one journalist asked.

Trump responded: ‘Absolutely.’

Peña Nieto, who spoke through a translator, may not have caught the English-language moment.

Answering questions in Spanish, he said Friday’s meeting would help the U.S. and Mexico to continue their ‘flowing dialog,’ particularly ‘for the security of both nations – especially for our borders.’

‘Migration,’ he said, has ‘occupied’ governments on both sides of the border.

Trump has spoken frequently about building a massive, impenetrable border wall to choke off the flow of human and drug trafficking coming from the south.

But Peña Nieto insisted that ‘it is the co-responsibility’ of his country and Trump’s ‘to deal with organized crime issues.’
