Looks like Donald Trump will be heading to Mexico on Wednesday! He announced his decision to visit with the Mexican President on Twitter on Tuesday prior to his rally in Everett, Washington where thousands were in attendance. The timing of the visit with President Enrique Pena Nieto will happen prior to his scheduled speech on immigration in Arizona on Wednesday. Trump has said in his past campaigns that he will build a wall on the border and get Mexico to pay for it. Talk about a doozy of the “Art of a Deal”.
Donald Trump plans to jet to Mexico City on Wednesday for a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, the Republican presidential candidate said via Twitter late Tuesday. The meeting will come just hours before he delivers a high-stakes speech in Arizona to clarify his views on immigration policy, according to people in the United States and Mexico familiar with the discussions.
Trump, sensing an opportunity, decided over the weekend to accept the invitation and push for a visit this week, according to the people in the United States and Mexico familiar with the discussions.
Late Tuesday, Trump and the Mexican president confirmed on Twitter that they will meet Wednesday.
“I have accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow,” Trump wrote Tuesday night. Shortly after, Peña Nieto’s office wrote that “El Señor” Donald Trump has accepted the invitation and will meet Wednesday privately with Peña Nieto.
Peña Nieto later tweeted that he believes in dialogue in order to “promote the interests of Mexico in the world and, principally, to protect Mexicans wherever they are.”
The visit comes after Trump has wavered for weeks on whether he will continue to hold his hard-line positions on the central and incendiary issue of his campaign, in particular his call to deport an estimated 11 million immigrants who are living in the United States illegally.
To the delight of his U.S. rally crowds, Trump has repeatedly promised to force Mexico to pay for his proposed border wall. Peña Nieto and other Mexican leaders have dismissed the idea as preposterous.
Trump’s newly installed campaign chief executive, Stephen K. Bannon, played a key role in devising the Wednesday stop while Trump met Sunday with his aides and family at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J..
Trump takes immigration and border security very seriously, as Obama and Hillary just continue to destroy our country with the influx of millions of illegals without the proper vetting. Illegal immigration is destroying our economy, our healthcare, our foreign policy and our constitution.
Of course, Clinton or Soros will probably have a group of paid protesters nearby that will get all the liberal media’s attention instead of the press focusing on the real issue of illegal immigration, crime and our national security. Hillary doesn’t support closed borders because let’s face it she’s counting on all the illegals to vote for her in the November elections, since she won’t have the majority of the votes legally. As long as Democrats are in charge, America will continue to have this influx of illegal immigrants – that’s how they will keep the majority of the vote in the future, keep getting elected and keep giving away “free stuff”. It’s called “stuffing the ballot box”.
