Donald Trump changed his immigration speech—because a tweet made him mad

Remember that little gem from the Clinton campaign?

"A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear

weapons." —Hillary

Funny, right? It’s not as if anyone, even Donald Trump, would change international policy just because someone popped a few words onto Twitter. Right? 
As Donald Trump arrived in Phoenix late Wednesday, fresh from a visit to Mexico City’s presidential palace, he had in his hands a big immigration speech that omitted the usual line that Mexico would have to pay for his proposed wall along the U.S. southern border.
Just after landing, though, Mr. Trump discovered that Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto had tweeted that he had told the Republican presidential nominee during their private meeting earlier that day that his country would refuse to pay for the wall.

Mr. Trump was peeved …
