MEXICO CITY, February 13. /TASS/. Tens of thousands of Mexicans took to the streets on Sunday in order to protest against US President Donald Trump. According to official estimates, around 20,000 people participated in protests in the country’s capital of Mexico City while a march in Guadalajara, Mexico’s second largest city, drew as many as 10,000 participants. Increased security measures had been taken, no accidents were reported.
Protesters in Mexico City shouted slogans saying "Long Live Mexico, Down with Trump". According to the El Universal daily, Enrique Graue, Rector of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, also took part in the street protests - for the first time in 49 years. Graue said that it was time for the Mexican people to look to the future and send a message of unity and power to the United States.
The future of Mexican-US relations has been uncertain after Trump was elected president. He pledged to review the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), tighten the immigration laws and build a wall along the US border with Mexico.
Trump signed an executive order concerning the border wall on January 25. After that, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto called off his visit to the United States. Later, during a telephone conversation, the two leaders agreed to refrain from discussing this controversial issue publicly.
