President Andres Lopez-Obrador of Mexico has finally met someone that he can’t fool anymore. For the last few years, the man nicknamed AMLO has pretended to be the leader of the Third World, the representative of everyone with a grievance, and the one who makes things happen. (A lot of Mexicans would say that he is making things a lot worse, but that’s for another post.)
A few months ago, President Lopez-Obrador stepped on it big time. He got involved in Peru’s politics, a sin by Mexican standards. After all, hasn’t Mexico always preached the idea that your business is your business? Non-intervention has been the “mantra” of Mexican presidents until “El Presidente del mundo” decided that he couldn’t resist sticking in his nose.
