ROUGH CUT - SUBTITLED (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Mexico is in a position of strength to face the uncertain economic environment following Donald Trump's surprise win in the U.S. election, Mexican Finance Minister Jose Antonio Meade said on Wednesday (November 9). The peso currency has been whiplashed by fears of victory for Republican candidate Donald Trump, who has vowed to build a massive southern border wall and threatened to ditch a trade deal with Mexico and Canada if he cannot recast it in the United States' favor. A win for Trump over Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton is expected to further pummel the peso and Mexico's stock market. In recent weeks, Clinton's lead over Trump has narrowed in public opinion polls. Meade said the election would not result in an immediate impact on trade, financial flows and travel between the two countries.
