AMLO says that border wall is an “US domestic issue”
US President Donald Trump made a case for a wall on the border with Mexico in a televised address on Tuesday, saying the situation is a “humanitarian crisis – a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul”.
Regarding Trump’s declarations, at his daily conference, Mexican President was questioned by local journalists,
When asked “You as the representative of all Mexicans, are you going to reply to Trump or not?”
“We are not going to comment on a matter related to US Domestic policies. This is a United States political issue, as always happens in any country when elections are close”, said AMLO
Lopez Obrador also said that the key is working on the causes of immigration,
“We are trying to persuade and convince the US government that the best solution is promoting development in Central America and Mexico. If Central America becomes more productive and generates more jobs, immigration would be optional instead of being a need.” said Lopez Obrador
“We just want to keep a relationship of cooperation with United States, that is all I can say”, said AMLO
