Kushner award angers Mexicans

It is the highest honor Mexico gives to foreigners — the Order of the Aztec Eagle — and this week, it will be awarded to Jared Kushner.

President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser is being honored for his "significant contributions in achieving the renegotiation of the new agreement between Mexico, the United States and Canada," according to Mexico's foreign ministry. The three countries hashed out the deal over the past year to replace the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Speaking Tuesday at an unrelated event, outgoing President Enrique Peña Nieto called Kushner a "grand ally of Mexico" and an important player in maintaining a good relationship between his country and the Trump administration.

The award choice has shocked many in Mexico, however, where President Trump is not well-liked.
