Trump Congratulates Mexico’s President-Elect Lopez Obrador

WASHINGTON – United States President Donald Trump congratulated Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on his victory in Mexico’s general elections and said he looked “forward to working with him” for the good of both countries.

“Congratulations to Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on becoming the next President of Mexico. I look very much forward to working with him. There is much to be done that will benefit both the United States and Mexico!” Trump said in a Twitter message posted Sunday night.

The message was posted less than two hours after exit polls showed Lopez Obrador, of the leftist National Regeneration Movement (Morena), as the clear winner in the election.

The governing Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) conceded defeat soon after the exit poll results were released, an unprecedented move by a party that has dominated Mexican politics for almost a century.

As the polls were opening in Mexico, Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, predicted that if Lopez Obrador won, his relationship with the US president “may produce some surprising results.”

“I think people may be surprised on this and I think President Trump will follow through with the same pattern he’s used with other foreign leaders,” Bolton said in an interview with Fox News.

“They look forward to meeting with him, sitting down and talking about these things. We have a relatively long transition period between the election and the inauguration of the new Mexican president” on Dec. 1, Bolton said.
