    Chairwoman of the Mexican Senate International Relations Committee said that Donald Trump victory in the US presidential elections coupled with the Republican control over the Congress poses threat for both Mexico and the United States itself.

    MEXICO (Sputnik) GOP nominee Donald Trump victory in the US presidential elections coupled with the Republican control over the Congress poses threat for both Mexico and the United States itself, Chairwoman of the Mexican Senate International Relations Committee Gabriela Cuevas Barron told Sputnik on Wednesday.

    "Trump represents great risk not only for Mexico, but even for the United States, because he will have a Republican majority in both chambers of the congress which will turn him into a particularly powerful candidate," Barron said.

    She added that Trump's victory has already caused anxiety not only in North America but around the world and led to the collapse of markets and the exchange rate of the Mexican peso.

    Trump has repeatedly said that he would build a wall along the US-Mexico border if he is elected president, in order to stop undocumented Mexican migrants from crossing into the United States.

    Earlier in the day, Trump won the US presidential elections despite most of the analysts and opinion polls predicting his defeat to Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton. Trump got 276 electoral votes against Hillary Clinton's 218 votes out of 270 needed to win.
