There is no question that, as a candidate, Donald Trump has broken the mold.
He has rejected traditional consultant advice and campaign strategies to do things his own way. It paid massive dividends during the Republican primary as he rode over traditional candidates and their traditional advisors to capture a record number of votes as he coasted to the nomination.
Now he is doing it again. Today Trump is scheduled to give a critical speech about immigration in Arizona. But that is not the only place Trump will be today. He has just made a stunning announcement about a side trip he will be making while he is in the American Southwest.
Lifezette has the details…
GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump will travel to Mexico on Wednesday to meet with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, LifeZette has confirmed.
Sources including 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.
The trip is particularly historic for Trump in that no previous non-incumbent presidential nominee of a major party has ever traveled to Mexico as part of his campaign.
The stakes for both Donald Trump and the Mexican president are high.
