The US President Donald Trump on Monday announced his intention to appoint the new US Ambassador to Mexico. This post is very important because of the difficult situation on the border between the two countries.
In a statement issued by the White House, Trump announced his intention to appoint Ambassador Christopher Landau, who is a lawyer on constitutional and appellate issues, has experience of proceedings in the Supreme Court, Federal appellate courts and the appellate courts of the States.
Previously, the United States Ambassador to Mexico was Roberta Jacobson, who held the post since 2016. She officially left Mexico City in May last year, when bilateral relations deteriorated due to the fact that the United States demanded that Mexico pay for the construction of the border wall to protect against illegal migration.
Recall that on March 11, D. Trump presented to Congress a draft budget for fiscal year 2020, demanding 8.6 billion dollars for the construction of additional sections of the wall along the border with Mexico.
