America should be cautious about Mexico’s newly elected president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), who is not only an outspoken critic of President Trump but also an anti-establishment politician who may align with socialist governments in Latin America and strengthen ties with Asia and Europe, asserts RT. Though he promotes “friendly-yet-fair” relations with America, AMLO has warned of repercussions if Trump continues maligning Mexican immigrants. If relations with the US don’t head in an amicable direction, AMLO says he will tighten relations with China, Japan and the EU instead of continuing his predecessor’s close ties with Trump and America.
Despite rumors, Mexico’s newly elected president, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), is not anti-American, argues James R. Jones in the Washington Post. Driven to improve living conditions in Mexico for the country’s poor, he favors economic growth and improved economic opportunities for Mexicans, and has has come to support the North American Free Trade Agreement despite previously criticizing it. While highly protective of Mexican national sovereignty, he is critical of President Trump's rhetoric and policies that hurt Mexico and its citizens in the US. But, he favors Mexico and America working together to tackle shared problems.
