AMLO claims modest possessions, income
President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) has published a financial disclosure form that reveals relatively few possessions — and the fact that his wife makes more than he does.
Lopez Obrador cut his own pay to about $65,000* per year when he took office on Dec. 1. His wife, writer and academic Beatriz Gutierrez, makes about $72,000*.
“I have never been interested in money, I fight for ideals,” Lopez Obrador said Friday. He claimed he has never had a credit card.
The president has about $23,000* in savings, apparently in bank accounts; Gutierrez has three times that much.
