Oh, to be a fly on the wall at this encounter. US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is to meet with the president of Mexico today.
The Republican candidate said he was looking forward to meeting President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Pena Nieto said on Twitter: “I believe in dialogue to promote the interests of Mexico in the world and mainly to protect Mexicans wherever they are.”
The meeting comes after Trump has previously condemned Mexican migrants and pledged to build a wall between the two countries.
Pena Neito, meanwhile, compared Trump to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini earlier this year.
He said in an interview with Mexican newspaper Excelsior: “There have been episodes in human history, unfortunately, where these expressions of strident rhetoric have led to very ominous situations… That’s how Mussolini got in, that’s how Hitler got in: they took advantage of a situation, a problem perhaps, which humanity was going through at the time, after an economic crisis.”
