Lopez Obrador Welcomes Trump’s Friendlier Tone toward Mexico

MEXICO CITY – Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador expressed gratitude for the “respect” that US President Donald Trump has recently shown toward him and Mexicans in general.

“I appreciate the respect shown toward us and I also appreciate that, for some time now, he has been cautious when referring to Mexicans. He hasn’t made any offensive remarks,” Lopez Obrador, who will be sworn in on Dec. 1, said regarding the US president.

At a rally in West Virginia on Tuesday, Trump said that he liked the new leader of Mexico.

“I like the new leader. I think he’s going to be terrific,” Trump said.

Lopez Obrador reiterated during a press conference on Friday that he seeks “a very good relationship with the US government, as well as with all of the world’s governments.”

“We need good neighborly relations, we need to achieve a relationship of respect and cooperation to spur development. So far, things are going well,” the president-elect said.

“There has been a show of respect for what we represent,” Lopez Obrador added.

The president-elect also spoke of the ongoing negotiations to amend the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) between Mexico, the United States and Canada, saying they were “on the right track.”
