Donald Trump promised to make positive changes in the country. He brought our jobs back, Carrier is still here, Ford canceled his plans in Mexico. Well, Mexican officials didn’t like it.
“Trump leaves Mexico without 3,600 jobs,” writes El Universal, a major newspaper in Mexico.
Mexican analyst Alejandro Hope expressed his views on this one.
“It shows how much actual leverage Trump has within specific companies, which is far greater than what Mexican elites thought until recently,” Hope stated.
“They claimed that at the end of the day economic interests would prevail over political messaging. That’s clearly not the case.”
Well, we have our jobs back. El Universal wrote:
“Mexico loses thousands of jobs with no word on a clear strategy for confronting the next U.S. government which has presented itself as protectionist and, especially, anti-Mexican,
“Trump will try to recover as many U.S. companies that have set up in Mexico as possible. He will try to make them return at whatever cost, through threats or using public resources.”
“It certainly shows that the idea that the status quo was entrenched was false.”
“This should put us on notice that when he says that he wants to renegotiate NAFTA, he means it,” Hope said.
