An afraid Enrique Peña Nieto sees Trump’s policies

Donald Trump signed an executive order this Wednesday to begin as soon as possible with one of his controversial promises. Build a wall between Mexico and United States that prevents the passage of migrants. And Enrique Peña Nieto did not remain silent. Before the imminent meeting that both presidents will maintain at Washington, he has sent a message to the Mexicans that from Emotion Research Lab we wanted to analyze. But he has not been able to calm the spirits. And Trump was quick to respond. Perhaps he cancels this meeting if Mexico does not accept the payment of the construction of the wall. As he communicated today in his favorite social network, Twitter.

Negative emotions of Enrique Peña Nieto during the message that has spread in networks, calls out stridently attention. It is consistent not to do so when trying to show a picture of antipathy and disobedience towards Trump’s policies. But when do you try to defend Mexicans living in the United States? FEAR and the ANGER also does not give way to the hope for those millions of Mexicans.

Negative emotions monopolize Enrique Peña Nieto’s message


Peña Nieto’s emotional pattern is dominated by negative emotions (72%), which helps the consistency of his message at times. But in other parts of his speech, he does not protect his engagement to Mexicans residing in the United States.

In addition to FEAR about it, HATE, AVERSION and ANTIPATHY as a result of the speed with which Trump has decided to begin the construction of the wall that separates the United States from Mexico, are consistent with his message. However, these negative emotions continue to be shown when referring to the help that Mexicans living in the US will receive from the State of Mexico if they need it. Enrique Peña Nieto tries to give them hope at a difficult time for them. But he is not convincing. CONCERN or GUILTY are some of the emotions he shows when addressing them. Peña Nieto is aware of the difficulties that his government will encounter. Trump’s executive staff is not going to make it easy. And the DISGUST or the LONELINESS in the message of commitment of Peña Nieto with their compatriots does not call to their tranquility.

If there is something that still regrets more the Mexican people, it is that Trump pretends that México is the one who pays the wall. Enrique Peña Nieto assured that “Mexico will not pay any wall”. But security he shows is not clear. PANIC, CONCERN and even COWARDICE appears on his face as he mentions this phrase. He knows that it is a complicated and controversial subject that Trump championed from the beginning of his campaign. And the magnate will not give in so easily.

Faced with this complicated situation, everything seems to indicate that next week Donald Trump and Enrique Peña Nieto will face each other. It will not be a relaxed meeting. We only hope that it will serve to approach positions and they arrive at the best possible decision for both countries.
