Despite the popularity of Hillary Clinton in the polls prior to the election, Jim Cramer earlier this week advised investors to be prepared for a Donald Trump surprise victory.
The one stance that stood out to Cramer from Trump's platform was his stance on Mexico. Trump plans to build a wall along the border and attempt to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
"What matters for the market is that in the scenario where Trump wins the White House, he is likely also going to have Republican majorities in the Senate and House of Representatives, which means if he wants to build a wall and renegotiate NAFTA, he'll probably be able to," the "Mad Money" host said.
Cracking down on Mexican exports would likely boost American manufacturing jobs, but it could also make products more expensive for U.S. consumers.
This means a company like Cemex — a Mexican company that is one of the world's largest manufacturers of cement and concrete — could be hurt substantially under a Trump presidency.
