Latin American Reactions to the U.S. Presidential Election

Congressman Farr’s Latin America on the Rise Briefing Series

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

10:00-11:00 a.m.
Congressional Meeting Room North
Capitol Visitors Center


Dear Colleague:

U.S.-Latin America relations are generally not a hot topic in presidential elections, but this year has been an exception. Both presidential candidates have weighed in on U.S. policy toward Latin America; Donald Trump recently traveled to Mexico; and Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine has lived in Honduras.

How have Latin American governments and citizens reacted to the U.S. presidential election? What kinds of challenges could the new President face vis-à-vis the U.S. relationship with Latin America as a result of electoral rhetoric?

Please join us at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 22nd
