López Obrador’s trip to Washington will be his first trip abroad since he is president.
The visit of the Mexican president has sparked controversy as some voices say that a weakened Donald Trump could use his presence there to campaign ahead of the November elections.
“It is going to be a political meeting in the good sense of what politics is, which has to do with my faculties, which gives me, which gives me, the Constitution,” he replied before acknowledging that he does not know if the Canadian President Justin Trudeau.
Just last week the same Foreign Secretary announced that it was Mexico who proposed the meeting in Washington between the three signatories of the Free Trade Agreement (T-MEC).
Andrés Manuel López Obrador reported that during his visit to the United States where he will meet with President Donald Trump, he will not request credit, and he ruled out meeting with Joe Biden, the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, because “it would not be correct to speak with candidates.”
At a press conference, and at an express question, the head of the federal Executive pointed out that his visit to Washington has the sole purpose of witnessing the beginning of the Treaty between Mexico, the United States and Canada (T-MEC).
“We do not need credits, we have healthy public finances, that is a difference from what happened before when the crisis that President (Ernesto) Zedillo faced had a rescue of the United States, they made 20 billion dollars available to us, we had to leave mortgaged oil, that does not happen now, we do not have that need, “he said.
“So I am not going to do that, I am not going to apply for credit, I am going to participate in witnessing the beginning of the Treaty that I consider will help us a lot to the three nations, Canada, the United States and Mexico. That’s basically what I’m going for, that’s why I’m not going to speak, it wouldn’t be correct to speak with candidates because it’s a work visit ”.
And he added: “I am going to meet with the President of the United States and if he decides, the Prime Minister of Canada (Justin Trudeau) would also be there, but they are going to solve that.”
