It’s true that Lopez Obrador seems unlikely to help President Trump stem illegal immigration.

Mexico president-elect says will invite Trump to inauguration

  Mexico president-elect says will invite Trump to inauguration Mexican president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Thursday he will invite US President Donald Trump to his inauguration on December 1, the leftist leader's latest olive branch after two years of deeply strained ties. "We are neighboring countries, we have economic and trade relationships, ties of friendship. It is very important to us to cooperate on development. We share 3,180 kilometers of border. So President Trump will be invited," Lopez Obrador told journalists.Whether he comes "will depend on his agenda and his decision," he said, adding: "We are also going to invite the prime minister of Canada.

President Trump is taking a first step toward keeping his signature campaign promises on immigration. He plans to sign executive orders to start building a

But Lopez Obrador has grand plans for expensive social programs to help the Mexican people. He needs lots of money to help pay for these plans. If he thought cooperating with President Trump on a border wall and immigration would get him some of that money, he might be willing to work with the U.S.

Lopez Obrador’s leftist past will make it especially challenging for him to get the resources he needs to fulfill his campaign promises, because international investors might flee Mexico, fearing the nation might follow the Venezuelan path to socialist ruin.

If President Trump and Lopez Obrador become friends, the U.S. president could vouch for Lopez Obrador’s good intentions towards businesses, to help Mexico attract foreign capital. A Trump promise to not impose tariffs on Mexico would further help the country get new business investments.

Normally, it would be politically perilous for a U.S. president to give huge sums to Mexico, and few Mexican leaders could survive being seen as helping enforce American immigration policy. But both President Trump and Lopez Obrador have successfully positioned themselves as strong nationalists willing to stand up to their neighbor – so both could likely win public support for the deal.

President Trump ordered the construction of a Mexican border wall in January. The contentious pledge to build a wall and force Mexico — or Congress — to pay for it has been a touchstone of his presidency .Published OnJan.

Lopez Obrador could justify the wall to his citizens by saying they need physical protection from U.S. drug buyers. Mexico’s drug cartels have been causing record-breaking violence in the country.

President Trump could shift from saying we need the wall to keep illegal Mexicans out to claiming that “good fences make good neighbors.

As another incentive to Mexico, President Trump could offer Mexico a jobs program where the U.S. not only pays for the wall but also primarily hires Mexican citizens to do the construction. First dibs could go to Mexican immigrants illegally living in the U.S. who agree to move back home.

A Trump-Lopez Obrador deal could solve one of President Trump’s biggest political problems – the left’s accusations of racism against him. If Lopez Obrador supported Trump and his wall, it would defang Democratic charges that Trump is somehow motivated by anti-Latino animus.

President Trump and Lopez Obrador need to reach an understanding because of the harm they could do to each other. Trump could crush Mexico’s economy by restricting imports from the nation. Lopez Obrador could exploit Trump’s political weakness – an inability to deal with illegally immigrating minors – by flooding the U.S. southern border with child immigrants from throughout the Western Hemisphere.

The visuals of all these desperate children would energize the liberal media throughout Trump’s presidential re-election campaign.

This grand plan to build a wall and take other immigration control measures with Mexican help, funded by the U.S., might never get off the ground. But it’s worth a try. If it succeeds, it would be evidence that President Trump can be innovative and truly understands the art of the deal. It could be part of his lasting legacy.
