Mexico’s incoming president to meet with Trump son-in-law
Leftist President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is enjoying a bit of a honeymoon with U.S. President Donald Trump, and he was effusive Tuesday in praising the U.S. leader’s restraint in not bringing up his proposed border wall.
Instead of confrontational talk, Lopez Obrador will get a visit by Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, and U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo on Friday. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen also will be at the meeting at Lopez Obrador’ campaign headquarters.
One and a half years ago, Trump’s insistence on talking about the wall — and insisting Mexico pay for it — forced current President Enrique Pena to cancel his first planned official meeting with Trump.
