Statement by Ambassador Jacobson

Mexico City, November 9, 2016—“After a long campaign, the American people have spoken and democracy has been heard.  President Obama phoned the victor this morning to congratulate him.  The President invited President-elect Trump to meet with him at the White House tomorrowto discuss the transition.  Ensuring a smooth transition of power will be a top priority for all of us in the coming weeks as will our continued work to strengthen the ties between Mexico and the United States.  Change sometimes brings anxiety, but as I have said many times I am confident our relationship is firmly rooted in shared values and interests.   That relationship will remain strong to the benefit of both countries.”
