File this one under “Huh?”:
I have accepted the invitation of President Enrique Pena Nieto, of Mexico, and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow.

Seriously? It’s not that I think Trump would ever make up something like this, but….
El Señor @realDonaldTrump ha aceptado esta invitación y se reunirá mañana en privado con el Presidente @EPN.

Well, OK then. This should go well, don’t you think? Sort of like this:
DJT: So you’ll pay for the wall, right?
DJT: How about just the half that faces Mexico?
DJT: You’re a tough cookie. OK, then, I’ll get Deutsche Bank to finance the wall, and Mexico will join the loan syndication. You’ll make out like banditos. I mean bandits.
DJT: Hmmm. What if I throw in a free stay at the Trump National golf club?
DJT: I’ve met my match. You’re the toughest negotiator I’ve ever faced off with. I’ve always said I admired the Mexican people. Let’s go have a taco bowl.
It’ll be great. Just Donald and and Peña Nieto in a quiet, private meeting. We’ll finally find out what happens when someone who’s not a moron negotiates for the United States.
