Mexico’s newly elected president, Claudia Sheinbaum, has taken an unexpected stance in the ongoing immigration debate by expressing her intention to maintain a positive relationship with Donald Trump if he wins the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

This revelation comes at a time when immigration is one of the most contentious issues in both countries, and it highlights the pragmatic approach Sheinbaum seems ready to adopt in dealing with her powerful northern neighbor. According to a report by Foreign Policy Sheinbaum, the first woman and first Jewish president of Mexico, represents the National Regeneration Movement (Morena) party.

She won the presidential election in a landslide, succeeding her mentor, outgoing President Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Her election marks a significant moment in Mexican history, not only for its groundbreaking nature but also for the timing, as the U.S. grapples with its own political turmoil and divisive immigration policies.

During an interview with Bloomberg News last month, Sheinbaum stated that she would be able to maintain good ties with the United States regardless of whether Joe Biden or Donald Trump is in office. “I think it will be good whether President Biden or President Trump wins,” Sheinbaum said in Spanish.

“We have very strong economic integration with the United States. We are now the principal trading partner and that requires us to have a good relationship.” Her comments have raised eyebrows, particularly given Trump’s harsh rhetoric on immigration and his pledge to launch the largest domestic deportation operation in U.S. history if he wins a second term.

On the campaign trail, Trump has intensified his anti-immigrant stance, telling supporters that migrants crossing into the U.S. from Mexico are criminals who are “poisoning the blood” of America. Such remarks have been criticized for echoing dangerous rhetoric reminiscent of historical fascist leaders.

Despite Trump’s divisive language and aggressive immigration policies, Sheinbaum appears ready to navigate these challenges with a focus on maintaining economic ties and protecting the interests of Mexican nationals. “Now, I think that obviously we are always going to defend Mexicans abroad. We are not in favor of any discriminatory discourse, but there is going to be a good relationship,” she asserted.

Sheinbaum also pointed out that her predecessor, López Obrador, managed to have a relatively stable relationship with Trump despite the latter’s incendiary comments about Mexican migrants. “President López Obrador in the end had a good relationship with Trump and I don’t see why we wouldn’t be able to have it as well,” she remarked.

This pragmatic stance underscores the importance of the economic relationship between the two countries. The U.S. and Mexico share a deeply intertwined economy, with Mexico being the United States’ principal trading partner. The need for a cooperative relationship, regardless of the political climate, is paramount for both nations.

Trump, who recently became the first former U.S. president to be convicted of a crime, remains a polarizing figure. His promises to deploy the military to enforce immigration laws and deport millions of undocumented immigrants have fueled fears and tensions. “We have no choice,” Trump told Time magazine earlier this year.

“I don’t believe this is sustainable for a country, what’s happening to us, with probably 15 million and maybe as many as 20 million by the time Biden’s out.”
