Latin American Reactions to the U.S. Presidential Election
Congressman Farr’s Latin America on the Rise Briefing Series
Thursday, September 22nd, 2016
Congressional Meeting Room North
Capitol Visitors Center
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

This panel is part of a monthly briefing series I host called Latin America on the Rise, which convenes experts to address a wide range of issues affecting the Western Hemisphere and U.S.-Latin America relations. If you have
any questions, please contact Ana Sorrentino (firstname.lastname@example.org) in my office.
