    Donald Trump announces surprise meeting with Mexican president

    By Mark Preston and Jeremy Diamond, CNN
    Updated 11:05 PM ET, Tue August 30, 2016

    (CNN)Donald Trump announced Tuesday night that he will meet Wednesday with the President of Mexico just hours before he is set to deliver a speech focused on immigration policy.
    "I have accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow," Trump tweeted as reports swirled that Trump was mulling a last-minute trip to Mexico.

    I have accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow.
    7:33 PM - 30 Aug 2016



    The office of the Mexican President confirmed in a tweet late Tuesday night that Trump had accepted Peña Nieto's invitation and that the two will meet privately on Wednesday.
    "In the past days, the President @EPN invited both U.S. presidential candidates to a dialogue on the bilateral relations between Mexico and the United States. Mr. @realDonaldTrump has accepted the invitation and will meet tomorrow in private with the President @EPN."

    A meeting between Trump and Peña Nieto would be extraordinary, given Trump's continued pledges to build a wall on the border with Mexico and make Mexico pay for it. Trump has also stoked fierce criticism in Mexico and in the Hispanic community at large for his at-times inflammatory rhetoric in discussing illegal immigration.
    Will Trump wall create illegal immigration?
    The Washington Post first reported the news earlier Tuesday evening.
    The potential visit follows months of warring words between Trump and Mexico's leaders, including when Peña Nieto compared Trump to brutal dictators Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.
    Trump in the early months of his campaign also leveled unfounded accusations that the Mexican government was intentionally sending its unwanted citizens across the border and into the United States
    But both Trump and Nieto have publicly expressed a willingness in recent weeks to meet with one another.
    "Mrs. Hillary Clinton and Mr. Donald Trump, I would like to express to both of them my greatest respect, my deepest respect. And from right now, I propose going into a frank, open dialogue with whomever is elected," Nieto said in July during a joint news conference with President Barack Obama at the White House.
    Criminals and 'rapists'


    But if Trump and Peña Nieto were to meet, they would have their differences to discuss.
    Trump launched his presidential campaign last summer in controversy by characterizing undocumented Mexican immigrants as criminals and "rapists" and accused the Mexican government of "sending people that have lots of problems" into the US.
    "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people," he said.
    The wall


    And Peña Nieto has repeatedly asserted that his country will not pay for the border wall Trump plans to build on the border between their two countries.
    And in a March interview, Peña Nieto compared Trump's "strident rhetoric" to Hitler and Mussolini's.
    "That's how Mussolini got in, that's how Hitler got in. They took advantage of a situation, a problem perhaps," the Mexican president said, according to Reuters.
    Peña Nieto explained those comments during a news conference in June.
    "Hitler, Mussolini, we all know the result," he said, according to Reuters. "It was only a call for reflection and for recognition, so that we bear in mind what we have achieved and the great deal still to achieve."
    Peña Nieto added that the world is at times "presented with political actors and political leaders who assume populist and demagogic positions."
    While Trump has wavered in the last week on whether he will seek to deport all the undocumented immigrants living in the US back to their countries, he has stuck by his pledge to build a wall on the border with Mexico and make the country pay for it.
    Trump has previously said he would pay for the wall by leveraging Mexico's economic gains through its trade with the US. He has also threatened to withhold remittance payments immigrants in the US send to relatives in Mexico and increasing fees for Mexican visa applicants.

    LOL!! So Mexican President is reaching out to Trump for a private sit down meeting? Why? Oh I know so he can come out and lie to Univision about what Trump says in the meeting. Or he thinks Trump is going to win and wants to get a head start on figuring out how Mexico is going to pay for the wall and start creating its own jobs instead of stealing ours. Or maybe he wants to threaten Trump and tell him he's going hurt him if he doesn't stop talking about building the wall and fixing NAFTA. Or maybe he just wants to start whining early.

    Any other ideas? That's all I could think of.

    Trump is scheduled to hold fundraisers Wednesday morning in California and deliver his immigration speech in the evening at the Phoenix Convention Center. His trip to Mexico, should it occur, would come between his events.
    Good grief!! The man is a Machine. Multiple fund-raising events in the morning in California. A trip to Mexico in the afternoon to have stressful contentious discussions with the President of a problem country. A major major speech on his signature issue, immigration, that I'm sure will be nationally televised in Phoenix, Arizona at 6 pm.

    Whew!!

    EXCLUSIVE: Trump-Nieto Meeting Confirmed — It’s On

    GOP nominee to make historic campaign trip to Mexico Wednesday




    by Jon Conradi | Updated 31 Aug 2016 at 12:01 AM




    LifeZette has confirmed that GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump will travel to Mexico on Wednesday to meet with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.

    Sources, that include Mexican officials involved in the planning of the visit, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, stated the meeting would cover a broad variety of topics ranging from trade to security to immigration and the contentious issue of border enforcement.

    It is expected that Trump advisor and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, along with high-ranking Mexican officials, will attend the meeting.

    The meeting will occur, despite concerns from both Mexican security services and the U.S. Secret Service.

    Officials expect the two leaders to make some statement following the meeting, but do not expect a full press conference.
    The trip is particularly historic for Trump in that no previous non-incumbent presidential nominee of a major party has ever travelled to Mexico as part of his campaign.

    The stakes for both Donald Trump and the Mexican president are high.

    For Nieto, the meeting represents a tremendous opportunity to offer Trump, the potential next President of the United States, an olive branch. Nieto has made negative comments about Trump in the past, including a suggestion Trump was like a fascist dictator. The meeting will offer Nieto the chance to clear the deck with the potential next leader of a nation on which his own is almost entirely economically reliant -- and earn goodwill for himself and his country among Trump supporters.

    For Trump, the historic meeting comes at a time when the GOP nominee is ramping up a high-stakes bid to win over support from traditionally Democratic minority voters in the United States.

    "Republican presidential nominees usually aren’t bold enough to go into communities of color and take the case right to them, and compete for all ears and compete for all votes," Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said in an August 28 interview with ABC, "They’ve been afraid to do that. So, Mr. Trump deserves credit for at least taking the case directly to the people."

    Trump surrogate Dr. Ben Carson laid out the key objectives Trump is pursuing in his outreach to minority communities.
    "He wants to find out from a lot of different sources what people perceive the problems to be and what they perceive the solutions to be," Carson said in an interview with Michel Martin on NPR. "He also wants to hear about things that have effectively moved people out of the position of dependency and put them on a ladder to success."

    Tying the ecomic message geared towards minority voters into the campaign's overall theme Carson said, "you cannot be great if you have large pockets of people who are failing."


    A new report from Gallup indicates Trump's effort may be finding success with U.S.-born Hispanic voters.

    The analysis of found Hispanics who were born in the United States, those who constitute most of the Hispanic demographic's total voters, only find view Clinton more favorably than Trump by a 14-point margin. To put that in context, 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney lost the Hispanic vote by a whopping 44 percent.

    "Both parties have done nothing for the middle class, but more specifically under the Obama administration Latinos, African-Americans, and the middle class have done worse under Democratic policy," said Jorge Herrera, one of the directors of #LatinosForTrump, in an Aug. 25 interview with LifeZette. "Hillary Clinton will be more of the same. Donald Trump is the only one speaking of the need to uplift Hispanics and all others economically."

    Trump certainly has credibility to speak on how to create jobs, including for minorities.

    It's hard to know for certain exactly how many Hispanics Donald Trump has employed throughout his business career but an analysis from CNN Money found Trump is likely responsible for creating at least 34,000 jobs -- Trump has suggested many of those positions have been held by Hispanics.


    "I am friends with and employ thousands of people of Mexican and Hispanic descent," Trump said in a June 7 statement.
    Of course Trump, waylaid by constant negative media coverage and hyperbolic attacks of racism, still faces a steep climb to pull close to even with Clinton among Hispanic voters.

    But the opportunity presented by meeting with Nieto could be a game-changer.

    Mexicans and Mexican-Americans alike could give Trump a second look after a strong show of respect for the nation of Mexico and a cleanly pulled-off meeting.

    A serious, substantive, and respectful meeting with Nieto, also offers Trump the chance reassure skeptical undecided voters of his presidential temperament.

    Of course first Trump will have to carefully navigate every moment both ahead of and after the meeting as the press corp will be rabidly looking for a chance to blow up the big moment.
