President Donald Trump lauded his relationship with Mexican leader Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and boasted that the two countries’ bond is “better than ever” in a last-minute effort to win over Hispanic voters before next week’s election.

Trump, who won office in 2016 on a promise to block immigration from Mexico and is currently trailing in the polls behind Democratic opponent Joe Biden, wrote that his re-election would benefit Mexicans. Mexico profits “when the economy of the United States is strong and when the United States is respected in the world,” he said in a written interview published Friday in Mexican newspaper El Universal.
