Mexico prepares contingency plan in case Trump wins
- Mexican officials are preparing to defend themselves from a potential Donald Trump victory at the US presidential election next week.
- Although a Republican win remains a remote possibility – polls give Hillary Clinton a comfortable lead – Trump’s economic plans, if he wins, would deal such a severe blow to the Mexican economy that the Peña Nieto administration has decided to prepare shock absorbers.
- Thanks to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the United States has become the Latin American nation’s largest trade partner and foreign investor. Trump’s protectionist threat is a ticking time bomb that would derail the country’s already fragile economy.
