Immigration chatter aside, Trump and Nieto reportedly had a productive meeting Friday, especially in regards to their discussions on NAFTA.
That omission was confirmed by Mexican officials and the White House's own statement after the meeting, which mentioned trade, drug trafficking and the political crisis in Venezuela but was silent on the border wall.
But Mexican Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray, who took part in the meeting, said the wall issue - as agreed - did not come up in the actual talks, and that he and Pena Nieto did not even hear Trump's comment.

Upon hearing this, Katrina further added saying, "I knew that " Rocket Singh ...' would be a flop". If I say in an interview, how obnoxious he is, and who would want to work with him, it's a joke.
The meeting was the first between the two leaders since last August, in the heat of the campaign season. People have debated whether he meant "there's no way" Mexico could pay for such a massive project, or if he was saying "there's no way" they would, but the gist is the same.
That visit turned into a public relations nightmare for Pena Nieto, who was lambasted for welcoming the brash Republican billionaire despite his insults and threats. President Trump emphasized the strong bilateral relationship that the United States enjoys with Mexico and noted the importance of renegotiating NAFTA to help workers in both countries. "He didn't. Trump is a bully, but Pena Nieto is a coward". He said the USA was pursuing "a total renegotiation of NAFTA and if we don't get it we will terminate it, that is, end NAFTA forever". In January, it was believed that Nieto canceled a meeting with Trump because of the policy, particularly his demands that Mexico is going to foot the bill. Let's see how it all turns out. One topic not on the agenda at the encounter in Hamburg is Trump's pledge to build a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border, Videgaray said in an earlier television interview.
Pena Nieto said he hopes to continue a "flowing dialogue".
