Mexico’s president-elect, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, on Monday thanked President Trump for congratulating him on his election win and said the pair will “reach an understanding,” according to The Associated Press.

López Obrador, who triumphed in Sunday’s presidential election over the ruling PRI party, is a leftist who has previously criticized Trump. He wrote a book titled “Oye, Trump” (“Listen Up, Trump”), which criticizes the U.S. president’s plans to build a wall along the U.S. southern border.

Trump tweeted his congratulations to López Obrador on Monday.

“I look very much forward to working with [Lopez Obrador],” Trump tweeted on Monday. “There is much to be done that will benefit both the United States and Mexico!”
