MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Monday that U.S. President Donald Trump had an “open” and “tolerant” attitude during talks to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement.

“The agreement gives peace of mind, gives confidence. It is creating conditions for investments to mature and for new investment in the automotive industry and the national economy,” Lopez Obrador told reporters during a visit to the state of Guanajuato.
