MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Tuesday that the peso currency “slipped” following his announcement that a partially-built new Mexico City airport will be canceled once he takes office.

Lopez Obrador, who will assume the presidency at the start of December, said in a recorded video message that the peso will recover and that it did not suffer a “devaluation.”
