Three Political Powerhouses Meet in Mexico
President Obama, and his Canadian and Mexican counterparts met in Mexico for a fun filled afternoon while they discussed the Olympics, and took a walk through a beautiful Mexican garden while posing for the cameras.
This meeting was not as fun as everyone hoped it would be, there were a series of topics that have been pressing in the last couple of years and needed to be discussed. Although they have discussed in the past, to make it easier to travel within the three countries there were still a few topics that have been left unresolved, trade, immigration and the Keystone pipeline being among those topics.
Mr. Obama arrived in Mexico with little to offer, he didn’t set anything in concrete and left most of the topics unresolved. Later on in the day Mr. Obama was pressured by media to cover these areas and he didn’t get too specific but did in fact specify that immigration legislation “remains one of my highest priorities” he also pledged to complete negotiations on the trade agreement that had been proposed.
Mr. Pena Nieto was also pressured for not speaking to Mr. Obama in regards to immigration. The U.S.A had deported a significant amount of Mexicans and had no delivered promised overhauls.
Of course Mr. Obamas choice of conversation seemed to be the Olympics. His brother in Law is Canadian and of course he told Mr. Harper that he should know that he has to like Canadians!
