2:11 am
their president has treated us with kindness and respect long live the friendship of our 2 nations. i'll be speaking to our correspondent in mexico city emmanuel rapinoe in just a moment but 1st to my kana in washington d.c. mike a controversial visit for the mexican president but both leaders very keen to stress their friendship and a new beginning in the u.s. mexico relationship. indeed years and very much a u.-turn from the nature of the relationship in the past certainly the 2 presidents in a warm relationship explain. complements to each other making very clear their view of the importance of this new trade deal which was formally signed by the 2 presidents in the course of the day one must remember that president trump when he was threatening to break down the previous trade deal that was an element of real
2:12 am
threat to mexico which is exceedingly reliance on its relationship both the united states and with canada that was in a way what brought the mexican president around that threat of economic action being taken by the president can see signed on to the new trade deal a trade deal which is now in force and a one in which both presidents expressed hope will see for one thing a greater use of local content for example so certainly this a major step forward in terms of the relationship between mexico and the united states mike thank you very much for that let's get the view from mexico city now and speak to man you're a rapper lil money this trip to meet with president trump is lopez obrador 1st overseas trip since winning the election 2 years ago how is it being seen in mexico . even before the trip began it was seen as very controversial opinion was split here in mexico for
2:13 am
a variety of reasons the 1st being that people here in mexico are well aware that there was an election campaign season taking place in the united states and there was a concern of distrust that this invitation by the white house could be used as a sort of ploy for a photo opportunity between president trump and lopez of brotherhood where he could tout the success of the u.s. m.c.a. as a sort of foreign policy. a foreign policy success for the trumpet ministration and we should we should note and we should stress that president trump is not well liked in mexico a majority of people here see him as a racist as a zina folk and that has to do with the rhetoric of the u.s. president toward mexico and toward mexicans for the last few years where he's spoken about migrants of mexico as bad people calling them rapists and murderers of course that is not the rhetoric that we heard in the rose garden today in these meetings between the 2 world leaders it's as mike said a u. turn from previous rhetoric that we've heard from president trump instead they spoke about a unique relationship that exists between the u.s.
2:14 am
and mexico built built on respect but one of the best and now sees that i've heard recently regarding this relationship and regarding this meeting is that there is no such thing as friendship between nations only interests and if you listen to the 2 the speeches from both world leaders today it's apparent that those interests were met for each of them thank you for that money man a rapper known for us in mexico city tyson ahead on the program the growing fallout for konami as military that has spock's national outrage past why he beirut business been jailed in the u.s. for providing millions of dollars to has been law is back home. we're watching the development of something vaguely tropical in georgia in the
