WINNING: Mexico Wants to Negotiate NAFTA With Trump!

Mexico’s foreign relations secre­tary says the country wants to negoti­ate changes to the North Ameri­can Free Trade Agree­ment as soon as possi­ble.

Luis Videgaray said there’s “enormous uncer­tain­ty” in the wake of the U.S. election. President-elect Donald Trump has pressured U.S. firms not to move jobs to Mexico, warned he would tax compa­nies who do and wants to renego­ti­ate NAFTA.

Videgaray said in a Radio Formu­la inter­view Tuesday that Trump’s actions have caused unease, adding “that is why this (negoti­a­tion) process is so impor­tant, to dispel this uncer­tain­ty.”  He said talks should start “as soon as possi­ble,” the Associ­at­ed Press report­ed.

Videgaray said Mexico is willing to negoti­ate Trump’s plan to build a border wall but Mexico won’t pay for it.

In Trump’s latest state­ments on the border wall with Mexico, he said the U.S. would initial­ly pay for the wall and then be reimbursed at a later date.

“The dishon­est media does not report that any money spent on build­ing the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!” Trump tweet­ed Friday.
