Vice President Mike Pence will lead a delegation of U.S. officials to Mexico for the upcoming inauguration of President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador at the San Lazaro Legislation Palace in Mexico City on Dec. 1, the White House announced today.
The delegation includes:
- Pence and his wife, second lady Karen Pence
- Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen
- Energy Secretary Rick Perry
- Ivanka Trump, President Trump’s daughter and advisor
- John Creamer, the top American diplomat at the U.S. embassy in Mexico City
- Kimberly Breier, assistant secretary of State for the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs
The event will also be attended by a host of Latin American leaders, including Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro.
Maduro’s presence at Mexico's president elect Lopez Obrador's inauguration ceremony will be a serious blow to the 14-country Group of Lima, which has tried to isolate the Venezuelan regime.
