The United States and Mexico are locked in a heated standoff as Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto is set to leave office on Tuesday, leaving a vacuum that could see the world react in different ways, depending on what happens next.
The White House has made it clear that Mr Peña is not going to be leaving office anytime soon.
It’s possible that President Donald Trump will stay in office, but it’s more likely that Mr Trump will be impeached.
But if the Republican president does step down, there is no guarantee that Mr Nieto will leave office in the same way as the Democrats, who lost a midterm election in 2017 by a huge margin.
The US president is likely to face a difficult time in the wake of his latest defeat, but he is also facing the reality that a new president is unlikely to do anything to advance the peace process with the countrys political adversaries.
Mr Peña’s departure would mark a dramatic and dramatic shift in US policy in the face of the deepening crisis in the country’s northern border, with the Trump administration now facing the prospect of a full-scale war with Mexico, something the US president has long opposed.
It would be the biggest shake-up of the Trump presidency since the first days of his presidency, when he was sworn in.
The White House said the move was aimed at ending the conflict in the north-east of Mexico and ending the crisis.
The move would also send a message to Mexico that the United States is serious about moving to address the country s territorial dispute with the US, said a White House official, who was not authorised to speak publicly about the matter and requested anonymity.

If Mr Peño leaves, he would be leaving a country which has never before seen a Mexican president leave office.
There has been no official announcement of his departure, but a spokesman for Mr Pena said the two leaders had a “constructive meeting”.
The Mexican Foreign Minister was also expected to visit Washington this week and hold talks with the President.
“We are deeply disappointed to hear the news about President Peña,” Mexico’s foreign minister, Hector Timerman, said in a statement.
“The Mexican side is deeply concerned about the deteriorating situation in the North-East, and we strongly hope that the US will respect Mexico s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
Mr Timerman said that the two sides had reached a “common understanding” that the crisis in North-Easterly was the “most serious threat to peace in the region”.
Mexico and the US have long fought over the country and the border, and the latest flare-up in the conflict was sparked by Mr Trump’s decision to halt a planned trade deal with Mexico.
At the time, the US had already signed a bilateral trade deal that would have sent $1.5 billion worth of goods and services from the United Sates to Mexico.
Mr Trump said he had decided to pull out of the deal because of “a number of issues” and the failure to “agree on the best solution”.
In the weeks since the deal was signed, the dispute escalated with the United Nations, which has repeatedly called for an end to the crisis, which now has a death toll of more than 100 people.
Mr Trump, who has been criticised for not doing enough to stem the conflict, was criticised for his decision not to announce a peace deal with the Mexicans at a time when Mexico is negotiating an agreement with the other two major world powers, the United Kingdom and France.
In a speech on Monday, Mr Trump accused Mexico of failing to pay for border wall construction.
“The US is not paying for the wall, it’s not paying,” he said.
“If we’re going to have a border wall, we’re not going take Mexico’s money, we are not going do it on our own.
We are going to take Mexico s money.
It will be paid for by us.”
Mexico has also been criticised over the treatment of refugees, who are being sent to the United State under the terms of the Mexico City Agreement, which President Peña signed in 2013.
The agreement has allowed Mexicans to apply for asylum in the United United States.
Under the terms the deal, US citizens who enter Mexico through the southern border will be allowed to remain and work for a year, unless they prove they are fleeing persecution or persecution due to their country of origin.
