In Mexico, President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador says he’ll take a 60 percent pay cut after he’s inaugurated in December as a gesture toward cracking down on wasteful spending and government corruption. The pledge came as López Obrador—known as AMLO—said he’s open to a debate on the legalization of drugs in Mexico, in a bid to end a drug war that’s seen tens of thousands of Mexicans killed. This comes days after top Trump administration officials traveled to Mexico City last week to meet with AMLO. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was joined by senior White House adviser Jared Kushner and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
