Mexico's next president is the ideal foil to Trump

Mexico's next president is the ideal foil to Trump

Lopez Obrador, the first leftist president since the end of one-party rule in 2000, won between 53 and 53.8 percent of votes, according to a quick count by the electoral authority, more than double the total for his nearest rival.

"We are conscious of the need to maintain good relations with the United States", he added.

Lopez Obrador, who is leading in the country's election, vowed to eradicate corruption in the country.

Lopez Obrador, a former Mexico City mayor, was greeted with rapturous cheers by supporters in the capital's Zocalo central square around midnight, while friends celebrated in his tiny hometown of Tepetitan, in the poor southern state of Tabasco.

"We won't do the dirty work of any foreign government", AMLO said, referring to detentions of Central American migrants trying to reach the United States border. "We'll be looking in the coming weeks for indications of the size and nature of any fiscal stimulus or signs of a more interventionist energy policy".

Both Moody's and Fitch Ratings said any adjustments of the country's risk profiles and debt ratings would depend on how Lopez Obrador's policies are ultimately implemented.

Trump has been highly critical of Mexico's control of its border. In a post-election speech, however, he has taken a more concilliatory tone saying he would like to "pursue a relationship of friendship and co-operation with the United States, always rooted in mutual respect and in the defence of our fellow Mexicans who live and work honourably in that country".

The comments from Lopez Obrador come afterTrump congratulated his new Mexican counterpart after his overwhelming presidential win Sunday.

"While Obrador's victory may ease concerns of political instability, there still remains a thick smog of uncertainty over Mexico's economic outlook", said Lukman Otunuga of FXTM.

Ricardo Anaya, National Action Party (PAN), 24 percent.

Mexican business group Coparmex called previous year for the creation of a strongly independent body to counter the tendency of Congress to approve expansive budgets. We have a border of more than 3,000 kilometres, more than 12 million Mexicans live in the United States.

"When a wall is built to segregate people or when the word "foreigner" is used to insult, disparage and discriminate our fellow men, humanity, intelligence and history are being insulted", said the president-elect, who will take office in December, in a speech in Los Angeles a year ago explaining the need to "counteract" Trump's strategy.

Trump has accused Mexico of sending criminals and rapists into the United States and is nearly universally disliked in Mexico. But Duncan also said that many people are unsure of how Lopez Obrador will be able to provide what he has promised.

Governing party candidate José Antonio Meade, Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) 14.8 percent.

Lopez Obrador has not proposed sending all troops back to their barracks.

Jaime Rodriguez Calderon, 60, is running as an independent. Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins and South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham both say they'll oppose any nominee who is openly hostile to Roe v. Wade.

Twenty-six-year-old Juan Carlos Limas said he's "concerned that some candidates are making proposals that are impossible, because they're very expensive to carry out".
