A 'Beautiful Wall' and the Volatile Peso: How Mexico Is Covering The U.S. Election

In the "U.S. Election" episode of "Mosaic," we look at how broadcasters around the world are covering the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Mexico has come to stand for especially divisive issues in this election. What matters most: Trump’s plan to build a wall, and to curtail immigration in an attempt to bring jobs back to the U.S. The drug trade has also proved divisive. But the financial roller-coaster ride this election has created for Mexico and world markets is getting attention from CBS News, NDTV, and Japan’s NHK.
