At his daily morning press conference at the National Palace, the president recalled that the “scribe,” as he was nicknamed when he was a presidential candidate during his failed political incursion in Peru in 1990, made such statements during a lecture he gave in the United States, and there he showed his decadence.
He was invited to the United States for a lecture. He gave a speech explaining what was happening in Latin America, a speech that contributed nothing, a speech of common places, a speech of defeat, a speech without options, without alternatives, even from his positions, the president said.
It was nothing more than lamenting Latin America, which has already been taken over by the left, according to him.
Regarding Mexico’s reality, Lopez Obrador considered that politicians’ main mistake is that they have not been able to understand the new reality.
He said that you cannot put new wine in old bottles, nor can you do politics as before; it is very simple, people’s mentality is different; it is not easy to accept it. Imagine decades of doing politics in one way and suddenly understanding that things have changed.
He said that the 75 percent approval rate of his administration at the moment is due to the fact that there are also middle class sectors that support him, which are well informed, not manipulated, not conservative, but very human, very fraternal.
