U.S. President Donald Trump met with his Mexican counterpart Andres Manuel López Obrador at the White House on Wednesday, July 8, the Albuquerque Journal reported.
It is noted that this is Orador’s first visit to the White House and his first meeting with Trump, as well as the first foreign visit since taking office in late 2018.
The meeting was timed to coincide with the entry into force of a new trade agreement between the United States, Mexico and Canada on July 1. This agreement replaced the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The publication also reports that in case Trump wins the presidential election, which will be held in November 2020, the Mexican president expects allied relations between the two states.
Orador said June 29 that he is going to visit Washington and meet with Trump.
