Trump signs executive order to withdraw US from TPP

Trump has vowed to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico to keep out migrants and make Mexico pay for it.

Mexico's foreign minister is scheduled to hold talks with Trump administration officials in Washington next week amid growing fears that the new US president's actions on trade could devastate the Mexican economy.

President Enrique Pena Nieto, pilloried at home for meeting Trump in August after the NY businessman called Mexican migrants rapists and murderers, said on Twitter he would defend the interests of Mexico and its people in a "respectful" dialogue. "The solution is dialogue and negotiation", Pena Nieto said.

The TPP included Mexico, the United States and 10 other countries spanning the Pacific.

Pena Nieto's office said that during Sunday's conversation, Trudeau and the Mexican president "spoke about the importance of the United States for both countries, and agreed to join forces to continue promoting the economic integration of North America".

On Saturday, Mexicans, many with relatives in the United States, queued for hours outside a bank located in an appliance store in Ixmiquilpan's town center.

On Friday, people gathered outside a Ford Motor Co showroom in the capital to protest the company's cancellation of a $1.6 billion investment in an auto plant in Mexico after months of pressure from Trump.

Trump told reporters that the pair did not discuss who would pay for the contested border wall he has promised to build. Pena Nieto said he "made it clear that Mexico will not pay for the wall".

He threatened to suspend remittances sent home from the United States by Mexican migrants to their families if Mexico refused to pay for the wall.

He said he would negotiate for any return of migrants from the United States to Mexico to be "orderly and coordinated" with Washington.

The Mexican government announced last Thursday that Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray and Economy Minister Ildefonso Guajardo will travel to Washington on January 25 and 26 for their first meetings with the Trump administration.
