Far more damaging in the long run might be what some have termed the Trump effect – the impact of Trump on the domestic politics of other countries.Thanks to intelligent leadership in Mexico City and consistent bipartisan engagement by Washington, the United States and Mexico have become friendly neighbors, active trading partners and allies in national security.Over the last year, as candidate Trump and now President Trump has attacked and demeaned Mexico and its people, the political landscape there has shifted. President Enrique Pena Nieto's already-declining approval ratings have plummeted after he was seen as too conciliatory toward Trump. Lopez Obrador has described Trump as a "neofascist," attacked the Pena Nieto administration for being too weak to confront Trump, and promised to get tough with Washington.Trump has casually delivered a number of slights to one of America's closest allies, accepting wholesale China's claim that Korea once belonged to it and threatening to tear up the U.S.-South Korea free trade agreement.
