MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Wednesday replaced his close ally and finance minister Luis Videgaray after the two were heavily criticized for Donald Trump's controversial visit to Mexico last week.

Pena Nieto named Jose Antonio Meade as finance minister, the second time the Yale-educated economist has held that post.
