WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he is meeting with Defence Secretary James Mattis to discuss a proposal for the military to secure the country's border with Mexico.

"We are preparing for the military to secure our border between Mexico and the United States. We have a meeting on it in a little while with General Mattis and everybody, and I think that it's something we have to do," Trump told reporters at a joint news conference with leaders of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Trump told reporters at the White House earlier on Tuesday that he had already discussed the idea with Mattis.
