(CNN) - Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has called off an official trip to Washington, D.C. to meet with U.S. President Donald Trump reportedly after a tense phone call.

Peña Nieto was planning the trip for either this month or early March, according to the Washington Post which first reported the cancellation.

Officials from both countries told the news outlet that Peña Nieto "called off the plan after Trump would not agree to publicly affirm Mexico's position that it would not fund construction of a border wall."
