MEXICO CITY (Reuters) –Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has won Mexico’s presidency, setting the stage for the most left-wing government in decades at a time of tense relations with the Trump administration. The 64-year-old former Mexico City mayor has pledged to eradicate corruption and subdue drug cartels with a less confrontational approach. A Lopez Obrador government could usher in greater scrutiny of foreign investment and a less accommodating approach to the United States, according to political analysts.
