Former U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Roberta Jacobson says that a victory by leftist presidential candidate Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador — known as AMLO — in Mexico’s general election could lead to a more positive relationship with the United States, even as President Trump and Mexican officials continue to butt heads over regional issues like trade, drug trafficking and the border wall.
“One of the things that he [Lopez Obrador], both in my discussions with him and many of his conversations and advisers conversations ahead of these elections have emphasized is the relationship with the United States and that it be positive,” Jacobson said on “Face the Nation” Sunday. “They’re going to work hard on that, which does not mean it’s going to be easier than it has been with current Mexican government. I think there a number of issues on which it’s going to be difficult and maybe harder.”
The article goes on to state the following:
She added that Lopez Obrador “has been at pains to reassure people that he takes this relationship seriously, that he does not think that it needs to be — descend into insult, and he has the leftist credentials to stand up politely in a way that I think he’s got the credibility to do that.”
What’s at stake in Sunday’s elections is whether or not the U.S. continues to cooperate and work with Mexico as a partner, according to Jacobson, including areas like the economy, immigration and security. She said the most important aspect to consider is “whether that partnership we built over the last 30 years begins to deteriorate.”
