MEXICO CITY—President Enrique Peña Nieto held a press conference on Wednesday evening to address Donald Trump’s victory and tell reporters he called the U.S. president-elect to congratulate him and his family on the win. “It was a cordial, friendly and respectful conversation,” Peña Nieto said.
“We both agreed that we must work towards a relationship of trust, a shared future, because our countries are very important to each other,” the Mexican president said. “When Mexico does well, the U.S. also does well.”
Peña Nieto said his administration will begin working with Trump’s transition team to create a new work agenda focused on “security, cooperation, and prosperity.”
