Mexican Finance Minister Out After Trump Visit

Luis Videgaray, gone.
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has announced that his finance minister, Luis Videgaray, is out of his cabinet.

"I would like to publicly express my highest recognition, not only as president, but also personally to someone who, without a doubt, has been a collaborator who has been deeply committed with the efforts our republic's governments in order to propel Mexico's transformation," Peña Nieto said at a news conference. "He has been a government official who was committed to Mexico and loyal to the republic's president. Thank you very much, Luis, for your service to our nation."

According to CNN, a Mexican government official and a source close to the Mexican government both said that the idea to extend invitations for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton to meet with Peña Nieto came from the finance ministry.

Peña Nieto has received severe criticism in Mexico for the way he handled the visit from Trump.
