Donald Trump has called undocumented Mexicans in the United States rapists and criminals. Today Trump makes his first foreign trip as the Republican presidential nominee — to Mexico.

He’ll visit Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, who’s likened Trump to Hitler. Trump also will give a much-anticipated speech on immigration, in Arizona.

Meanwhile, Trump’s rival Hillary Clinton has her first public appearance in days. She’ll give a speech to the American Legion national convention in Cincinnati.
