"He didn't raise it, so he did choke. He didn't know how to even communicate effectively with a head of state. And I think that's a pretty clear outcome from that trip," she added, taking Trump's word that the issue was not discussed.

But after the joint press conference in Mexico City, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto tweeted that the topic of the wall led off their conversation and said that he was unambiguous regarding his country’s stance.

"At the beginning of the conversation with Donald Trump I made it clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall," wrote Peña Nieto in Spanish.

"You shouldn't leave the safety of America and our diplomacy in the hands of a rookie who, on his one visit with a foreign leader, has already created kind of an international embarrassment for us," said the Virginia senator.

"I'm going to continue to focus on what we're doing to create jobs here at home, what we're doing to make sure Americans have the best possible opportunities in the future," said the Democratic presidential nominee.

"We will build a great wall along the southern border," said Trump. "And Mexico will pay for the wall."
