Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has cancelled next week’s trip to Washington to meet US President Donald Trump.

The no-show comes a day after the new US president unveiled his plan to build a wall along the Mexico-US border.

He also insisted that the US would recoup the costs for the barrier from Mexico, which has strongly objected.

Senate Republicans said the US Congress would move ahead with the plan, and it would cost $12bn (£9.5bn) to $15bn.
