On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive orders on constructing a wall on the US-Mexico border. The US leader said in a press conference that the wall would stop criminals from pouring into the United States and would disrupt drug cartels. Safe borders and economic cooperation, Trump added, would enhance US-Mexican relations to a degree not seen before.
Nieto is scheduled to hold a meeting with Trump in Washington on January 31.
