Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says he has accepted an invitation from the president of Mexico to visit the country on Wednesday.
I have accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow.

While the purpose of the trip has not been announced, sources tell Lifezette Trump will talk with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and other officials about “a broad variety of topics ranging from trade to security to immigration and the contentious issue of border enforcement.”
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions and RNC chairman Reince Priebus are also expected to attend the meeting, according to reports.
Since announcing his bid for the presidency, Trump has envisioned building a wall between the US and Mexico, and sticking Mexico with the bill.
From day one I said that I was going to build a great wall on the SOUTHERN BORDER, and much more. Stop illegal immigration. Watch Wednesday!

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox earlier this year responded saying he would not pay for Trump’s wall.
“I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall! He should pay for it. He’s got the money,” Fox said.
