Mexico Prez hits out at Donald Trump

As his party's presumptive presidential candidate, Trump is now eyeing a clash in the November election with his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

"There is no way to have Mexico pay (for) the wall. But any decisions inside (the) USA -- is a decision of its government," Pena Nieto said on Sunday.

The Mexican president earlier had said Trump's campaign pledge was a non-starter, but he did not address the issue as specifically. Pena Nieto said US-Mexican relations were based on coordination, collaboration and cooperation on security issues.

The Mexican president earlier compared Trump's rhetoric to the rise of European dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.
