Mexico, Canada to work with next US president, despite Trump worries

The leaders of Mexico and Canada express willingness to work with whomever is the next leader of the US, even as they have deep reservations about policies advocated by Republican Donald Trump.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said Trump's demagogic rhetoric would tear down what has taken decades to build and went so far as to compare it to that used by Adolf Hitler or Benito Mussolini.

The leaders pointed to the benefit of a regional free trade agreement with the United States as well as immigration between their countries.

"Our world is interconnected in so many ways that it is much better that we engage, that we work through our challenges together," Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says.
