Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he will make a last-minute trip to Mexico on Wednesday, hours before he delivers a highly anticipated speech on immigration.

Trump announced his visit on Twitter shortly after rumors started circulating that he’d make the trip.

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. His office says the invitation was well received, and now Trump has accepted the invitation.
