Trump hosts Mexican president for first visit at White House

President Trump is hosting Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador at the White House Wednesday to recognize the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which took effect earlier this month.

Mr. Trump's visit with López Obrador, which is their first, included a bilateral meeting in the Oval Office followed by the signing of a joint declaration at the Rose Garden. This evening, they will hold a working dinner and deliver a joint statement.

Speaking before the agreement was signed in the Rose Garden, Mr. Trump said that "the relationship between the United States and Mexico has never been closer." He praised López Obrador, calling him a "tough negotiator."


My comment: "calling him a "tough negotiator" ...I am guessing Obrador did not bring the check for the wall?
