Mexico’s leftist President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has threatened to meddle in America’s election to help Democrats win.
Obrador, also known as ALMO, made the threat while attacking Republicans during a Thursday press conference.
ALMO was responding to Republican lawmakers who suggested suing the U.S. military to destroy Mexico’s powerful multi-billion dollar drug cartels.
Obrador’s remarks come as Republican lawmakers and top officials, like former Attorney General William Barr, have called for using the U.S. military in recent weeks to stamp out the cartels.
The dangerous cartels are behind the billions of dollars worth of drugs pouring into the U.S.
The drugs that flow across the border from Mexico are responsible for tens of thousands of deaths in America every year.
Last year the cartels made $13 billion from human smuggling alone.
The remarks from lawmakers come after four Americans were kidnapped in Mexico this week and two of them ended up being murdered.
As Slay News reported earlier, the Gulf Cartel responded to the call for the U.S. Marines to take action by apologizing and handing over five gang members behind the attack.
“We establish our position at once: we are not going to allow any foreign government to intervene, much less the armed forces of a foreign government, to intervene in our territory,” he declared at a press conference.
“And starting today, we are going to initiate an information campaign (aimed at) Mexicans who live and work in the United States, and all Hispanics, to inform them about what we are doing in Mexico and how this initiative from the Republicans, besides being irresponsible, is an offense against the people on Mexico.”
“A lack of respect for our independence, for our sovereignty,” he continued.
“And if they do not change their attitude and think that they are going to use Mexico for their propagandist, electioneering, and (dirty) political purposes, we are going to call for them not to vote for that party, (due to its being) interventionist, inhumane, hypocritical, and corrupt.”
“Because we do not accept what this senator said yesterday,” he said as he wagged his finger.
“Mexico is to be respected.
“We are not a protectorate of the United States.
“Nor a colony of the United States.
“Mexico is a free, independent, and sovereign country.”
