A government spokeswoman says Treasury Minister Luis Videgaray has resigned after Donald Trump's visit to Mexico.

Treasury minister spokeswoman Claudia Algorri said that Videgaray presented his resignation to President Enrique Pena Nieto on Wednesday.

Algorri gave no reason for the resignation, but it comes in the wake of the Republican presidential candidate's meeting with Pena Nieto in the Mexican capital last week.

The president's office announced earlier Wednesday that Pena Nieto would have a message later in the day about a change in his government.
