Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador this week defended Donald Trump, saying a potential indictment of the former president could be a move to prevent him from seeking reelection.
“Right now, former President Trump is declaring that they are going to arrest him,” López Obrador, who is also known by his initials AMLO, said during a press conference. “If that were the case…it would be so that his name doesn’t appear on the ballot.”
The leftist president’s support for Trump may seem unlikely, given the latter’s past comments about Mexico, such as insisting that the country pay for construction of a 450-mile wall along the southern border. (López Obrador’s predecessor, Enrique Peña Nieto, denounced Trump’s wall-financing demand, and Mexico did not fund the wall.)
