US Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump is meeting with Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto today.
He is already getting severe criticisms ahead of the visit, owing to his earlier inflammatory remarks about Mexican people and his plans to build a wall to block them off.
Amid the outrage, President Nieto has explained why he invited Trump.
He said: “I believe in dialogue to promote Mexico’s interests in the world, and chiefly, to protect Mexicans wherever they are.”
Trump is expected to make a speech outlining specifics on his planned crackdown on illegal immigration only a few hours after the meeting.
