AMLO says: “I’m not a sellout”

He stated that he will travel on a commercial flight and not on an Armed Forces aircraft

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador affirmed that he will visit President Donald Trump in Washington in the coming days to celebrate the entry into force of the Trade Agreement between Mexico, the United States and Canada ( T-MEC ).

During his morning conference at the National Palace, the chief executive announced that he will travel to the neighboring country on July 9th.

“I am going to travel to the United States, it is for the entry into force of the T-MEC, I am going to have a meeting with Trump to celebrate that the agreement was reached,” said López Obrador.

Also, he clarified: “I am not a sellout, to put it clearly […] I have no problem of conscience with traveling to the United States if all my life I have maintained that Mexico is a free and sovereign country”

He pointed out that the agreement will mean foreign investment, reactivation of the economy and well-being for the country.

“The entry into force of the -MEC is timely, we are about to emerge from the pandemic and it is important to emerge from the recession caused by COVID-19”.
