Trump Talks with Mexico’s President-Elect on Border, NAFTA

We also must wait and see what type of relationship the United State and Mexico will eventually have with Trump and AMLO as their presidents.

We want to hear from you.

Mr Trump has congratulated the President-elect on his victory and tweeted he was looking forward to working with him and the pair have had a lengthy phone conversation.

After the Trump administration in May slapped hefty steel and aluminum tariffs on its allies, Mexico hit back with $3 billion worth of retaliatory levies on United States goods. "At the appropriate moment, we are going to get in touch, to reach an understanding" with the Trump administration.

The United States Border Patrol on Sunday allowed reporters to briefly visit the facility where it holds families arrested at the southern USA border, responding to questions over the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" policy.

A cover of his recent book features Mr Lopez Obrador pointing his finger, accompanied by the words "Listen, Trump!" Consequently, President Carlos Salinas de Gortari signed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1994, starting a new era of economic cooperation between Mexico and the US.

There also are question of whether he will be able to work with Trump on trade and immigration.

Carlos Urzua, Lopez Obrador's pick to be his finance minister when he takes office on December 1, told Reuters on Monday that the new government will aim to reform the pension system and to reduce costs at Pemex during its six-year term. The winning candidate said he will make that proposal in a meeting Tuesday with current President Enrique Pena Nieto. He further assured, "We're gonna have them taken care of". The peso fell more than 1 percent against the USA dollar overnight as Lopez Obrador was elected.

Mexico has elected a new president - Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador or AMLO for short.

Mexican presidents are limited by law to a single term.

Following his overwhelming majority win, Mexico's president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he supports reaching a deal on renegotiating NAFTA with the United States and Canada. "I desire with all my soul to raise the greatness of our country on high".

Pena Nieto said Sunday that the vote "should reaffirm us in our democratic vocation". "The changes will be profound, but in accordance with established order".

Candidate Jose Antonio Meade of Pena Nieto's Institutional Revolutionary Party has been running third in most polls, behind front-runner Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador of the leftist Morena party and conservative Ricardo Anaya of a right-left coalition. Canada has retaliated with $16.6 billion in counter-tariffs and the US midterm elections are in the fall.

Lopez Obrador surged to victory on promises to help the poor and reform corruption in the country, as well as brandishing fiery nationalist rhetoric, famously promising that Mexico would not be the "pinata" of any foreign government.

"There will be no confiscation or expropriation of assets". Peña Nieto has been criticized by many who say he failed to adequately deal with crime, corruption and economic inequality.

According to a poll by Oraculus, Lopez Obrador was favored by 48.1 percent of voters.

"Behind this exercise in democracy is the dignity and freedom of every human being, called to participate in social life", they said. Lopez Obrador has promised a "transformation" of Mexico and pledged to give scholarships or paid apprenticeships to youth, and increase support payments for the elderly.
