Donald Trump claimed in Mexico today that he and the President of Mexico did not discuss payment of the border wall.

Now, if this is true and they did talk about payment, Peña Nieto then had no interest in publicly correcting him. So this could very well be him saving face.
UPDATE –– 7:01 pm ET: Nieto himself tweeted that he made it clear to Trump they’re not paying for the wall:
Al inicio de la conversación con Donald Trump dejé claro que México no pagará por el muro.
— Enrique Peña Nieto (@EPN) August 31, 2016
So yes, someone’s lying here.
UPDATE –– 9:42 pm ET: Or not, apparently.
