Mexico’s foreign minister has reasserted that his government would not pay for a wall along the US border – a promise made by US president-elect Donald Trump during his election campaign.
“Paying for a wall is not part of our vision,” Claudia Ruiz Massieu told local television on Wednesday, after Trump triumphed in the US election. Trump had vowed that he would build a massive border wall, and make Mexico pay for it.
Massieu said that the government had maintained communication with Trump’s campaign team since the property mogul paid a visit to Mexico in August.
