MEXICO CITY (AP) - An official at the Mexico City international airport says a private plane carrying Republican candidate Donald Trump has touched down at the airport.

 
The official was not authorized to be quoted by name, nor did he provide the plane's registry number, or say how Trump would reach the official residence of President Enrique Pena Nieto, where the meeting with the Mexican leader is to take place.
 
Pena Nieto's office has confirmed there will be a meeting and subsequent press statement at the residence, which is across town from the airport.
 
Trump appeared likely to fly to the residence by helicopter, rather than cross town in any kind of motorcade.
