Things are not like they used to be.
It was well known that Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and Donald Trump had a tremendous working relationship. Obrador helped President Trump hold illegal aliens in his country before their trial in the US and Trump rewarded Obrador and Mexico with a strong border policy.
Those days are over.
Today, under the Biden-Kamala administration, the US Border is wide open and the Mexican President is not pleased with the way the Biden administration is assisting cartel leaders in Mexico with their insane policies.
On Friday Lopez Obrador accused the Biden administration of orchestrating a coup against his administration!
Then later Lopez Obrador complained after Kamala Harris walked out of their first meeting on US border! She got up and walked away because she had “other business.”
Kamala is the Biden “border czar”
ABC International reported:
Much has changed the attitude of the Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, towards the White House after the departure of Donald Trump. At his first major meeting with the US vice president, who has recently assumed the task of solving the migration crisis at the border, the Mexican president has come accusing his northern neighbor of interventionist and financier of coup plotters, to which he has added the rudeness of communicating to Kamala Harris that she was not going to stay for the entire meeting – held virtually by the pandemic – for other commitments. Even so, in the face to face, López Obrador has said: “Let’s seek understanding, don’t fight.”
US News reported:
Mexico has sent a diplomatic note asking the United States to suspend funding for an anti-corruption group critical of the government, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Friday.
Lopez Obrador said the formal protest was sent because of financial backing for Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity (MCCI), a group that investigates political corruption. The president says the group is seeking to undermine his government.
“It’s interference, it’s interventionism, it’s promoting coup plotters,” said Lopez Obrador, describing funding that includes money from the U.S. Agency for International Development, commonly known as USAID, as an affront to Mexico’s sovereignty.
“That’s why we’re asking that (the U.S. government) clarifies this for us. A foreign government can’t provide money to political groups.”
Lopez Obrador was later asked if he believed the U.S. government was seeking to remove him from office, and he responded that he did not believe that was the case.
Lopez Obrador, who has touted his good relations with both the previous Trump administration and the current Biden administration, was speaking shortly before a call with U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris about immigration.
