Donald Trump also congratulated Lopez Obrador on his electoral win, however, the US president also said in an interview this weekend he intends to hold off on signing a new NAFTA deal until after America's fall midterm elections.

With almost three-quarters of the ballots counted, Lopez Obrador had about 53 per cent of the vote - the most for any presidential candidate since 1982, a time when the Institutional Revolutionary Party was in its 71-year domination of Mexican politics and ruling party victories were a given.

A poll published in May by Seattle-based political research firm Latino Decisions showed that Lopez Obrador had a 23 percentage point lead over his closest rival among voting-age Mexican nationals living in the United States, especially those registered to vote by mail.

Johns Hopkins professor Christopher Sands says Lopez Obradoris is an anti-estalishment populist like Trump, but retains strong progressive values.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador won Mexico's presidential election on Sunday, and he's made it clear where he stands with President Donald Trump.

For much of the 20th century the Mexican state promoted a brand of nationalism shaped by anti-US sentiment and as a result, Mexico remained a relatively closed country both in economic and political terms.

His first interaction with Trump went more smoothly than expected, with the newly elected Mexican president tweeting: "I proposed that we explore an integral agreement of development projects, which generate jobs in Mexico and with that reduce migration and improve security".

Opponents also include the leaders of Mexico's armed forces, with Naval Secretary Vidal Soberon warning late a year ago that it would make "the state complicit in crime".

"We had a lot of good conversation, said President Trump". He added the private sector would defend recent initiatives, such as an energy reform bill that opened the sector to private investors under President Enrique Pena Nieto, "that have benefited competitiveness". He later joined the Party of the Democratic Revolution and more recently formed his own party, the National Regeneration Movement - known as MORENA.

The Mexican peso and the country's main stock index are both down about 1 percent following the crushing victory by leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in the country's presidential elections.

Lopez Obrador has said he will root out corruption and grant amnesties to certain criminals amid an intense wave of violence in Mexico.

Some also highlighted how the new Mexican leader came to power on an anti-Trump platform.

Lopez Obrador told the Televisa network Monday that he will respect the current team of negotiators, and let them continue representing Mexico until he takes office December 1. He has also struck a nationalist tone on plans to boost the economy. He has also promised to increase spending on social programs while keeping government spending under control.

Amid widespread frustrations with the status quo, all of the candidates have tried to paint themselves as the agent of real change.

The brash U.S. leader has also threatened to tear up NAFTA, the two-decade-old North American Free Trade Agreement. You shall not be disappointed", he vowed while crowds waved flags of his Morena party and chanted "President!

Mr Lopez Obrador appears well liked by his people.
