It's been a rough few days for U.S.-Mexico relations.

The meeting that was scheduled for next week between President Donald Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto at the White House is off.

Relations have hit a new low with Trump's continued insistence that Mexico would foot the multi-billion dollar bill.
