Mexicos president-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, on Monday thanked President Trump for congratulating him on his election win and said the pair will reach an understanding," according to The Associated Press.
López Obrador, who triumphed in Sundays presidential election over the ruling PRI party, is a leftist who has previously criticized Trump. He wrote a book titled "Oye, Trump" ("Listen Up, Trump"), which criticizes the U.S. president's plans to build a wall along the U.S. southern border.
Trump tweeted his congratulations to López Obrador on Monday.
"I look very much forward to working with [Lopez Obrador]," Trump tweeted on Monday. "There is much to be done that will benefit both the United States and Mexico!"
López Obrador described the congratulations as very respectful.
We are never going to disrespect the U.S. government, because we want them to respect us," López Obrador said in an interview with the news network Televisa, according to the AP. At the appropriate moment, we are going to get in touch, to reach an understanding.

Trump knows what he’s doing.
Winning? I hope so, because I’m not even a little bit tired of it.
Understanding? Mexico is responsible for anyone crossing into US from Mexico. Either they stop it or we close the border and all commerce. More? Mexico should prepare and take back the 25% of its citizens that are infesting the US.
AMLO had better flip on his flops muy pronto
Now that the radical left has power in Mexico, the economy will take a dive and there will be a surge of migrants heading to the US. Better build that wall quick and expand ICE.
Understand this: no more breaking into America from Mexico.
If you really wanted to make things interesting....go down to the major universities in Mexico with a US HR team, and seek to recruit their best and brightest for jobs in the US. Take an entire generation into the US. By summer of next year, we will be onto Trump’s next million (we are 3.2 million jobs now) jobs.
Very true, and that includes realizing AMLO is stuck between a rock (Trump) and several hard places - the cartels, AMLO's communist "supporters" and Mexico's economy.
Elections over, mochacho.
And the Trump Bank wont cash that check your mouth wrote.
I have a feeling that Trump is going to solve the illegal crossing problem by the fact that it is not the PRI that he is dealing with now in Mexico.
Yup. Just like what he did to Romney, he has the Vito Corleone rule down to a science. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
One good thing is leftists always increase the welfare spending to buy votes, so more of their free stuff crowd will stay there. Give bums free food and they never leave.
And drill ANWR, because any moves toward privatizing oil in Mexico will cease.
Start saving your pesos, O Labrador, you’ve got a wall to pay for.
Oh really? I happen to be an American of Mestizo heritage and my IQ and that of most of my family is quite high, never been in jail, and served in our nations military. What is your evidence for this?
The only agreement needed is: you keep your filthy illegals on your side of the fence, which you will pay for.
