Ahead of 'immigration' speech, Trump to meet Mexican President
Trump's disparaging views on Mexican immigrants have been in the spotlight throughout the campaign and he has even talked of building a wall between the US and Mexico
Notwithstanding his outrageous comments about Mexicans, US Republican Presidential nominee Donald J. Trump on Wednesday will meet Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, following which he will fly back to give his "major immigration" speech in Arizona.
Trump will travel to Mexico for a private meeting with President Enrique Peña Nieto. The meeting would take place at the presidential palace in Mexico City.
'The Washington Post' first reported on Tuesday that Peña Nieto had extended invitations to both Trump and his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, to travel to Mexico City for a meeting.
Trump on Tuesday night confirmed his meeting by tweeting: "I have accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow."
I have accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow.

Peña Nieto shortly thereafter confirmed the information, also on Twitter: "Mr. Donald Trump accepted that invitation and will meet tomorrow in private with President Pena Nieto."
