Mexican Presidential Election Front-Runner Agrees with Trump – Corrupt Mexican Governments Are at Fault

On June 16, 2015 Donald Trump announced he was running for president of the United States.

During his speech Trump famously lambasted the illegal immigration catastrophe from Mexico and Central America.

Donald Trump: When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.

Of course, the liberal media was outraged that a presidential candidate would dare be so honest about the illegal immigration debacle.

Now this…
On Sunday the leading candidate in the Mexican presidential election agreed with President Trump. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador told supporters corrupt governments in the country were to blame for U.S. President Donald Trump’s bad impression of Mexicans.

Reuters reported:

Mexico’s left-wing presidential front-runner said on Sunday that corrupt governments in the country were to blame for U.S. President Donald Trump’s bad impression of Mexicans, promising to change Trump’s perception if elected.

Speaking from the tourist destination of Rosarito in the Baja California peninsula, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said Trump’s bad experiences investing in Mexico were the reason for his negative view of the country.

“He invested here in Rosarito and also in Cozumel, Quintana Roo, and because of Mexico’s corrupt governments he had to leave,” Lopez Obrador said. “That’s why he got a bad impression of our country.”

Lopez Obrador, who has a double-digit lead in most major opinion polls for the July 1 election, said his message for Trump was that he was going to end corruption in Mexico.
