HuffPost Launches Mexico Edition

This is HuffPost's 16th international edition.

In an effort to combat Donald Trump’s racist views, The Huffington Post has partnered with Mexico media outlet Grupo Imagen Multimedia to launch HuffPost Mexico.

The Spanish language site will debut in September with a team of reporters based in Mexico City.

“At a time when Trump is running on a platform that includes putting up a wall between the U.S. and Mexico while calling Mexicans ‘killers and rapists’ and challenging the integrity of an American judge because of his Mexican descent, it’s more important than ever to open up the conversation, nurture the longstanding ties between our two countries and counter this false and dangerous narrative,” said HuffPost co-founder and editor Arianna Huffington, in an announcement. “We’ll do this by not only reporting on Mexico’s challenges, but also focusing on all the ways Mexicans are responding to them, overcoming great odds, and working toward solutions with ingenuity and compassion.”
