Trump "absolutely" still wants Mexico to pay for wall

During a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto at the G20 summit, President Trump told reporters that he "absolutely" still expects Mexico to pay for a border wall.
Why it matters: It's an antagonistic move by Trump during a summit meant to built compromise and consensus between world leaders, but it's also a signal to Trump's base that he's standing by his campaign pledge.
