Donald Trump is meeting with Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto on Wednesday. In Mexico.


What's more, Peña Nieto—who has compared Trump to Hitler and Mussolini in the past—invited him. 

Don't believe us? Look at these tweets.

That's right. Donald Trump. Mexico. The Mexico Donald Trump accused of sending hordes of criminal rapists to the United States. The Mexico that Donald Trump wants to pay for whatever version of a giant border wall he's supposedly going to build. The Mexico that is the ultimate symbol of Trump's anti-immigrant, racist fever dream of a candidacy.

You know, Mexico!

Some further background from The Washington Post:

Peña Nieto last Friday invited both Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to visit Mexico, his office said in a statement provided to The Washington Post on Tuesday night.

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.


Peña Nieto is highly unpopular in Mexico; a meeting with someone like Trump could be exactly the distraction he needs, or it could completely backfire on him. (New York Times reporter Elizabeth Malkin tweeted that the immediate reaction to the news in Mexico was "furious.") It's not clear how Trump will fare either. In other words, it's going to be wild.

This is happening people. Buckle up.
