Trump ‘looks forward’ to working with Mexico’s new president Obrador

US President Donald Trump has congratulated his newly elected Mexican counterpart, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, after multiple polls and an early count showed the leftist anti-establishment candidate decisively leading the vote. “There is much to be done that will benefit both the United States and Mexico!” Trump tweeted Sunday night. Although Obrador, 64, has vowed to reduce Mexico’s dependence on the US, triggering fears of a further escalation of tension with Trump, the US leader added that he looks “very much forward to working with him.”
