Macri hopes relationship with Trump will pay off

US president-elect Donald Trump and President Mauricio Macri shared a 15-minute phone call a week after the US election, during which they refreshed their personal relationship and promised cooperation moving forward. President Macri and his father, Franco Macri, had business dealings in the 1980s with Trump. The Macri administration, which had seemed to long favour and expect a Hillary Clinton victory, had been scrambling to readjust its stance toward the Republican candidate since he won the US election in a shock outcome. According to a read-out of the call distributed by the Pink House, Macri and Trump agreed to work together on a common agenda that would benefit both Buenos Aires and Washington. Since Macri has repeatedly indicated he does not believe Trump's policies will have a negative impact on Argentina.

 

Macri noted that he expects to see Trump in Buenos Aires in 2018 on the occasion of the G20 summit, and according to the Pink House, the president-elect said that he would like to welcome his Argentine counterpart at the White House. Foreign Minister Susana Malcorra, who reportedly helped coordinate the call, said that the most important element of the conversation was the "reconfirmation and reestablishment of the personal relationship -that they had many years ago" when the two politicians crossed paths through business dealings.
