WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump says on Twitter he’s accepted invitation to visit Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, looks forward to meeting him Wednesday.

Trump has made illegal immigration and his call for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border a centerpiece of his presidential campaign. However, he’s suggested recently he could soften the hardline positions he staked out during the Republican primaries.

Last week, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto extended an invitation to both Trump and Hillary Clinton.
