    US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said that she would not accept Mexican President Pena Nieto's invitation to visit his country before the US Election Day in November.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Last month, the Mexican president issued the invitations to visit Mexico to both US presidential nominees. Clinton's Republican rival Donald Trump accepted the invitation and traveled to Mexico last week.

    "No… I am going to continue to focus on what we are doing to create jobs here at home, what we are doing to make sure Americans have the best possible opportunities in the future," Clinton told the ABC News broadcaster in an interview, answering the relevant question.

    Clinton criticized Trump's trip to Mexico, saying that he had likely created a "diplomatic incident" during his trip as he did not know "how to even communicate effectively with a head of state."
