Washington Post: President Trump and Mexican president speak by phone amid crisis in relations
MEXICO CITY — Amid one of the worst crises in U.S.-Mexico relations in years, President Trump and President Enrique Peña Nieto spoke by phone Friday morning, according to an official in the Mexican president’s office.
A White House official confirmed the conversation, saying the call took place about 9:30 a.m. Eastern time.
The call came a day after Peña Nieto canceled a planned trip to Washington, following Trump’s insistence that Mexico pay for a U.S. wall across the border. The official did not elaborate on the content of the call, which was first reported by the Associated Press.
