Trump considers attending December inauguration of López Obrador

Mexico City, Mexico — In a bid to build stronger ties with Mexico’s next president, Donald Trump is weighing the idea of attending the December inauguration of Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

Larry Rubin, representative of the Republican Party in Mexico, says that the attendance of President Donald Trump and the White House would be valued during the inauguration of Andrés Manuel López Obrador on December 1.

The Senate of the Republic said that there is an interest by the American president to meet with the man who will be the next president of Mexico.

“President Trump wants to visit Mexico. For him it is important to strengthen ties with president-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

“There is a relationship that is building. For President Trump, Mexico is a priority and they are definitely analyzing the idea in the White House to make it possible for him to be here on December 1 and failing that he could not come, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would be here,” explained Rubin.

He said that it is also the interest of the United States to strengthen communication with the Mexican Legislative Power after the change of government because issues regarding the bilateral agenda continue to advance and remain a priority.
