Jared Kushner heading to Mexico to meet with Peña Nieto

President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is traveling to Mexico on Wednesday to meet with President Enrique Peña Nieto, the Mexican Foreign Ministry announced Tuesday.

Kushner, who was stripped of his access to top secret intelligence in late February, is one of the White House's foreign policy advisers, and he will likely discuss with Peña Nieto Trump's announced tariffs on steel and aluminum. Peña Nieto was supposed to make his first trip to the White House in February but canceled after a tense phone call with Trump, where Trump once again brought up Mexico paying for a border wall between the two countries.
