MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump told Mexico's President-elect in a letter that a quick renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) would bring more jobs for both countries, but warned of a "very different" path otherwise.

In a letter to Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who won Mexico's presidential election on July 1, Trump said that he was looking forward to working closely together to build a great relationship. Mexico's next Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard read out the letter in a news conference.
