Donald Trump said he will meet with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto Wednesday before he unveils his immigration plan in Arizona later in the day.

In a tweet, the office of the Mexican president confirmed the meeting. Trump’s visit to Mexico comes after an entire campaign in which Trump has repeatedly said he plans to build a border wall with Mexico and make Mexico pay for it.

According to the Washington Post, Peña Nieto invited Trump to meet with him last Friday.

It is unclear if Trump still supports building a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border – a cornerstone of his primary campaign that helped him to handedly win the Republican primary. Trump’s visit with the Mexican president comes after a long year of negative press about his tone deaf attempts and lack of outreach to the Latino community. In addition to the border wall, Trump has spoken negatively about Mexican immigrants, pandered to Latinos with a taco salad tweet on Cinco De Mayo and attacked a federal judge’s “Mexican” heritage.
