This essay analyzes the opportunities that Mexico could have, as a signatory of the “United States, Canada, Mexico Agreement” -USMCA-, within the arrival of Joseph Biden to the presidency of the United States. This change of baton unleashed singular expectations; first, by simply replacing Trump and proposing domestic social and economic policies of high social content and, second, by announcing the American return to the diplomatic forms exercised since the end of World War II. Whether it is domestic or foreign policy, it is clear and often explicit that the central motivation of the United States is the defense of the American national interest, which is to reduce inequality, ethnic discrimination and strengthen the economy. It is legitimate and necessary, therefore, for Mexico to identify its interests and opportunities to advance them within the framework of the reorientation of internal and external politics of the new Democratic administration, without forgetting that Biden is an expert politician with long experience, for whom “those own interests” express personal ambitions, partisan needs, national aspirations and personal desires.
