Yesterday, British Prime Minister Theresa May cameto the U.S. for a two-day visit. She's the first servingforeign leader to speak at the annual congressionalRepublican retreat. That's in Philadelphia this year.And Prime Minister May is also the first foreign leaderto meet with U.S. President Donald Trump since hisinauguration. Britain is widely considered to beAmerica's closest ally.
A separate international meeting was cancelled though. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nietohad been scheduled to visit President Trump at the White House next Tuesday. But Mr.Trump's moving forward with plans to build a wall on the U.S. Mexico border. He wants Mexicoto pay for it and that's something Mr. Pena Nieto has repeatedly said Mexico would not do.
On Thursday, President Trump said if President Pena Nieto continued to refuse to finance thewall, it would be better for him to skip the meeting.
So, the Mexican leader cancelled his plans, saying his country does not believe in walls. TheWhite House said it would keep communication open with America's southern neighbor.
