Republican nominee Donald Trump accepted an invitation from Mexico’s President Enrique Pena Nieto to meet Wednesday and discuss their differences on certain policies.
Rather than arriving in Mexico with his usual flare, Trump chose to charter a smaller plane instead of the Boeing 757 with his name in large letters on the side.
The decision to use a less conspicuous form of travel was made as a result of security concerns voiced by the Secret Service as well as Mexican officials.
Word of the use of a smaller plane made it to Twitter where Trump was accused of being afraid of showing up in his own plane.

This assertion quickly got responses from Twitter users.
@davemorgannyc Dave, your lack of Intelligence is scary. “Afraid”? NO, it’s SMART.

@davemorgannyc No, more than likely his Secret Service detail advised him to fly in that way. Mexican Drug Cartel death threats swirling

The Gateway Pundit posted news about the unmarked plane to its Facebook page, where people were also quick to respond.
One follower wrote, “Very smart on his part. No need to wave a red flag by bringing in his plane. Low key and to the point. Trump was priceless with this move!”
While another posted, ” Smart move, this is Trump, always thinking!! Go Trump!!!”
Accompanying Trump on the quick trip was former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus.
