Trump: I did a great job in Mexico

Mexico’s finance minister Luis Videgaray resigned following Donald Trump’s controversial visit to the country, with the US Republican presidential candidate boasting it showed his trip had been a success.

“I let them know where the US stands,” Trump said during a televised forum.

“If you look what happened, the aftermath today, people that arranged the trip in Mexico have been forced out of government. That’s how well we did.”

Videgaray, a confidant of President Enrique Pena Nieto, stepped down amid a fallout from the New York billionaire’s visit, which he helped arrange.

Pena Nieto said he accepted Videgaray’s resignation but made no mention of reports he played a crucial role in setting up Trump’s August 31 meeting.

The Washington Post last week reported Videgaray was a leading advocate for liaison with Trump.
