Donald Trump claimed Wednesday after a landmark summit with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto that America's southern neighbor has agreed the U.S. has the right to build a wall along the nations' 2,000-mile border.

So America is now building and paying for it? Not what I remember him promising
America's southern neighbor has agreed the U.S. has the right to build a wall
What could he say really?
They use a wall at their southern border to keep people honest too.
Just goes to show that he can get things done despite what the media is shoving down our throats!

Someone already answered your first question. However, the reason it is important is because I constantly hear democrats and some others claim that the wall will never be built/mexico would never allow it/etc. If Trump can get Mexico's president to agree to the erection of the structure itself, which will surely put a damper on illegal immigration, I can see him possibly getting Mexico to agree to other things, maybe even sharing or fully paying the costs. If you recall, I believe Mexico's president also previously said some pretty nasty things about Trump. Yet somehow Trump is able to get him to agree with this? You gotta admit that's pretty impressive no matter who you are supporting.

They just said they didn't talk about the wall.
Nieto said "Mr. Trump and I don't agree on many issues"
Little detail about their meeting. The sound was not good on the speeches afterward.
74% of Mexicans disapprove of pres.
