What a long, strange trip its been for the relationship between Donald Trump and Mexico.
While Trump’s stances on immigration, remittances and US factories moving to Mexico may not have played well with the Mexican public, public officials seem to be coming around to the distinct possibility that Trump will win in November and they had better start softening the ground now.
The biggest concession so far happened when Mexican president Enrique Peño Nieto stunned a Reuters reporter as he contorted himself into a pretzel walking back his earlier criticism of Trump.

Mexican President Enrique Peño Nieto appeared to backtrack on his initial animosity toward Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and said he would talk to him should he win the election in November.
“Yes, I would meet with him,” Nieto said during a taped television interview in Mexico on Tuesday.
“I have never met him. I can’t agree with some of the things he has said, but I will be absolutely respectful and will seek to work with whomever becomes the next president of the United States,” Reuters reported Nieto said.
Nothing succeeds like success. Trump is no enemy of Mexico and Mexico knows it. America benefits when one of our largest trading partners has a successful economy and safe environment for its citizens. Ultimately that is what will keep them from crossing into America illegally. Trump’s policies on trade, energy and the border are ultimately good for Mexico…and that’s good for America.
