WATCH LIVE: Donald Trump meets with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto

State Dept. on Trump's visit to Mexico

Donald Trump will travel to Mexico City Wednesday afternoon to meet with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.

The Republican presidential candidate's campaign put together the visit in just a matter of days, scheduling it the same day as his highly anticipated speech on illegal immigration in Arizona.

Both parties confirmed Trump's visit Tuesday evening on Twitter.

The GOP nominee's running mate Indiana Governor Mike Pence said Trump will address border security and his plan to build a wall on the border during television interviews Wednesday morning, according to Reuters.

Many, including former Mexican President Vicente Fox, have criticized the visit.

"We don't like him. We don't want him. We reject his message," Fox said during an interview with CNN.
