The Mexican government plans to travel to Washington, D.C. on Wednesday for an impromptu summit with the U.S. following President Trump's threat of aggressive, incremental tariffs on goods imported from Mexico, the Washington Post reports.

Details: On Friday, Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard announced on Twitter that he would lead his country's delegation, while Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is expected to represent the U.S. Trump will not be present for the meeting, with travel to Europe previously scheduled.

Why it matters: Stemming the surge of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has remained a consistent theme throughout Trump's political career, per the Post, and he has returned to the issue numerous times in an attempt to fire up his base. Whether the White House believes a fix can be found at next week's face-to-face remains to be seen.

A federal judge early on Sunday temporarily blocked a Trump administration order banning the downloads of the Chinese-owned, global messaging app WeChat.

Bill Clinton slams McConnell and Trump: "Their first value is power"

Former President Bill Clinton on Sunday called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) vow to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg's vacant Supreme Court seat before the next presidential inauguration "superficially hypocritical."

The big picture: Clinton, who nominated Ginsburg to the court in 1993, declined to say whether he thinks Democrats should respond by adding more justices if they take back the Senate and the White House in November. Instead, he called on Republicans to "remember the example Abraham Lincoln set" by not confirming a justice in an election year.

Pelosi: Trump wants to "crush" ACA with Ginsburg replacement

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that President Trump is rushing to replace the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg because he "wants to crush the Affordable Care Act."

Why it matters: Pelosi wants to steer the conversation around the potential Ginsburg replacement to health care, which polls show is a top issue for voters, especially amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Trump administration has urged the courts to strike down the law, and with it, protections for millions with pre-existing conditions.
