Peña Nieto invited both Trump and Hillary Clinton to a visit on Friday, according to The Washington Post.
In July, he said there was "no way" that Mexico would pay for a wall between it and the United States. Peña Nieto also said he disagreed with Trump's characterization of Mexican illegal immigrants.
