According to Reuters, Mexico’s new Treasury and Public Finance secretary (SHCP) delivered a stern reproach to Donald Trump on Thursday September 8, saying that the only thing he agreed on with the U.S. Republican presidential candidate was that his predecessor in the ministry was an excellent public servant.
The comments follow the resignation of Luis Videgaray as treasury secretary on Wednesday after he came under fire for Trump’s visit to Mexico City last week, which Mexican diplomats said he was instrumental in arranging.
Trump has infuriated Mexicans with a series of broadsides against the United States’ southern neighbor, and his hastily arranged visit to meet President Enrique Peña Nieto a week ago sparked heavy criticism of the government.
Presenting the government’s 2017 budget plan just a day after his appointment, the new treasury secretary, José Antonio Meade Kuribreña, did not mince his words when he was asked about recent comments by Trump on Videgaray at a news conference.
“I’d like to point out that the only thing, absolutely the only thing I agree on with candidate Trump is that Luis Videgaray is an exceptional public servant,” Meade Kuribreña said.
