We Are Lucky To Have POTUS indeed!!!
Mexico is our third-largest trading partner. We sell more to Mexico than we do to China, India, and Russia combined. Every year, millions of tourists and businesspeople and friends and family cross our border legally. Every day, $1.5 billion in trade and investment crosses our border — and that’s trade that supports over a million jobs right here in the United States.
On a whole host of issues, from our shared security to climate change, Mexico is a critical partner and is critically important to our own well-being. We’re not just strategic and economic partners, we’re also neighbors, and we’re friends, and we’re family — including millions of Americans that are connected to Mexico by ties of culture and of language.
A reporter challenged the two Presidents to respond to the Republican presidential nominee who called, once again, for a wall. Isn’t Trump’s success an indictment of your Presidency, he asked Obama. And how do you partner with a person that you’ve previously compared to Hitler and Mussolini, he asked Peña Nieto.
Obama’s reply demonstrates how incredibly lucky Americans are to have him as POTUS.
