Abstract

From the very beginning of his presidential campaign more than a year ago, one of Donald Trump’s main platforms has been to build a wall at the Mexican border. This, coupled with negative rhetoric about the US’ southern neighbors, has provoked much concern in Mexico, writes Jesus Velasco. He writes that this feeling of besiegement by Mexicans which recalls past US interference in Mexican politics is made worse by the lack of a clear policy towards the US by the country’s Peña Nieto administration. While historically Mexicans have admired US culture and democracy, Trump’s rhetoric is now calling that into question.
