"Mexico loses thousands of jobs with no word on a clear strategy for confronting the next U.S. government which has presented itself as protectionist and, especially, anti-Mexican," the paper wrote. "Trump will try to recover as many U.S. companies that have set up in Mexico as possible. He will try to make them return at whatever cost, through threats or using public resources."
"Ford's decision is indicative of what awaits the economies of both countries," the daily La Jornada said. "For ours a severe decrease in investment from our neighboring country, and for the U.S. a notable increase in their production costs."
Hope said more decisions like Ford's are likely to come. And while the loss of a single planned plant probably does not fundamentally change the U.S.-Mexico economic relationship, "it certainly shows that the idea that the status quo was entrenched was false."
"This should put us on notice that when he says that he wants to renegotiate NAFTA, he means it," Hope said.

Mexico has much to fear. Their fear is a good thing.
Their misguided arrogance is about to stop.
Mexico needs to invest in a wall. Then they need to allow Americans to own land there. Then they need to make English the major language.
Just remember my FRiends, unconstitutional federal acts under Trump that seem to favor the Right (feel good tyranny) should be shunned as much as belligerent unconstitutional federal acts like those under Obama.
Protectionist tariffs, though not advisable, are not unconstitutional. I don’t know of any unconstitutional federal acts contemplated under Trump yet, but federal interference with business market decisions are generally unconstitutional.
Remember, it was Bush who greased the skids for Obama. So often it is a GOP President who unconstitutionally grows the feds in a feel-good way. But as we should all know, tyranny sooner or later becomes oppressive and miserable.
To clarify, unconstitutional acts of the feds are by definition acts of tyranny.
I hope this is scare-mongering or exaggeration. He talked of reducing regulations as the inducement at rallies.
Cue the tiny violins.
The liberal press has been falling over itself to insist that Trump had nothing whatsoever to do with Ford’s decision to make its cars in the US.
I’d say that’s a good down payment on the wall.
After 30 years of aiding and abetting the illegal alien invasion of our country, aided by our own elected officials, Mexico should be fearing US.
Pro-USA is NOT Anti-Mexican.
Well if we get the 20% of our recreational drug using citizens to stop it, Mexico could be great again also.
Take all that cartel cash and start your own damn car companies.
BOOO HOOO (weeping noises)WAHHHHHHHHH (gasp)...
My give a damn is all out.
and for the U.S. a notable increase in their production costs.”...
You don’t need third world labor to make a nice profit.
...and provide sanctuary cities for Americans illegally in their country taking their jobs.
Good. Fear is good.
