After famously saying that Mexicans were “bringing drugs” to America and calling them “rapists,” and threatening to build a wall across the Mexico/U.S. border and making them pay for it, Trump will seize the opportunity Wednesday in a meeting with Nieto.

Yet, the real estate mogul’s decision to head south of the border was trolled on social media.

Director Rob Reiner said: “Clearly we’re not sending our best to Mexico.”

Other users chimed in to express their thoughts.

Peña Nieto had invited both Trump and Hillary Clinton to Mexico for a visit. Trump announced Tuesday night that he would meet with Nieto in Mexico before attending a rally in Arizona where he will lay out a new immigration platform.

“I have accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow,” Trump tweeted.

Peña Nieto later tweeted that he believes in dialogue in order to “promote the interests of Mexico in the world and, principally, to protect Mexicans wherever they are.”

In the past, the Mexican president has compared Trump to both Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.

"Hitler, Mussolini, we all know the result," he said in June when asked about Trump during a meeting with President Obama and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau. "It was only a call for reflection and for recognition, so that we bear in mind what we have achieved and the great deal still to achieve."
