Mexico’s leftist President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) has publicly humiliated Democrat President Joe Biden.
During a press conference, AMLO decried Biden over the Democrats’ efforts to indict President Donald Trump.
He said Biden can no longer lecture other countries about democracy if Trump is arrested.
“Right now, former President Trump is declaring that they are going to arrest him,” the Mexican leader said.
“If that were the case, it would be so that his name doesn’t appear on the ballot.
“I say this because I too have suffered from the fabrication of a crime when they didn’t want me to run.
“And this is completely anti-democratic.
“Why not allow the people to decide?”
He also called out Biden specifically, saying the United States cannot talk about human rights with Julian Assange detained, cartel violence with Biden bombing the Nord Stream pipeline, or democracy while arresting the leading presidential candidate Donald Trump.

According to The Hill, Obrador is finally taking the fentanyl issue seriously:
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador told U.S. lawmakers over the weekend that he would personally work with China to quell trans-Pacific shipments of fentanyl precursors that are processed into the deadly drug in Mexico, according to two of the American representatives.
The commitment was made in a long meeting in Mexico City over the weekend, where López Obrador discussed an array of issues with a bipartisan group of eight senators and four House members.
“One of the interesting parts is he agreed to meet with China on how they could prevent getting some of the raw materials, the precursors, from China,” Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-Texas) told The Hill.
“So that in itself acknowledges the fact that China is sending these things through, mainly through Manzanillo and some of the ports on that side of Mexico.”
A Mexican official said the meeting was respectful and constructive but did not confirm the specific claim.
