Mexico-U.S. Relations: López Obrador Proposes to Trump Comprehensive

Agreements to Work Together on Trade, Migration, Regional Development and


La Jornada: Enrique Méndez

At a press conference held yesterday [Sunday, July 22] at noon, President-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador [aka AMLO] made public the letter he sent to the U.S. President, Donald Trump, on July 12th. López Obrador and Marcelo Ebrard, his choice to be Secretary of Foreign Relations, said they decided to make the contents of the letter public once they were certain that Trump has it in his hands. Now, they said, they hope to receive an answer this Monday.

…In the letter, AMLO proposed making an effort to move forward in a comprehensive manner in four substantive areas: trade, migration, economic development and security. This would be done in the spirit of finding a common path regarding each of them. In this way, progress will be made on other issues in the bilateral relationship.

AMLO told Trump that his plans seek to start a new stage in the relationship between the two countries, as well as to reach a friendly understanding and mutual respect. The new understanding must lead to a dignified and respectful treatment of the Mexican community in the United States and of U.S. citizens who reside in Mexico.
