Mexico’s peso continued its downward slide on Wednesday in response to US President-elect Donald Trump’s comments during a press conference in New York.

Mexicans have already been hit by a sluggish economy and a petrol-price hike of 20 percent and many worry about the effects of a Trump White House.

Analysts predict the currency might fall even further as Trump’s policies become clear.
