Mexicans are tired of the killing. The massacres earlier this year in Uruapan (where 19 people were killed) and Minatitlán (where 14 died) were a mere fraction of the many deadly tragedies that have shattered the nation.
It is by no means normal for a U.S. president to ask a foreign leader to launch an investigation into a political rival. But thats exactly what happened during a July 25 phone conversation between President Donald Trump and President Volodymyr Zelenskiy of Ukraine.
MEXICO CITY — The honeymoon is still going strong. Surveys — and his strong support on social media — suggest that millions of Mexicans still back President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (or AMLO, as he’s known) and are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
As we all know by now, the Russian government launched a cyberattack against the United States during the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election.
The Mexican president has systematically discredited journalists and media outlets. He is powerful and popular but he is not untouchable.
Mexico is an extremely dangerous country. The main challenge facing Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Mexicos new president, is to stop the killing..
More than 30 million Mexicans voted for a change in the last election, and that’s exactly what they got.
Juan Guaidó is really shaking things up in Venezuela. Twenty years after the Bolivarian revolution was begun under Hugo Chávez, Guaidó, the 35-year-old opposition politician, has finally forced the government of Nicolás Maduro to play defense.
Nicolás Maduro’s lack of legitimacy lies at the very heart of the Venezuelan crisis. Why isn’t he the rightful president of the country? Well, for starters, the two elections he won (in 2013 and 2018) were fraudulent. On top of that, he has “killed hundreds of young people in the streets,” according to his former intelligence chief, Hugo Carvajal, and has used repression to crush his people and hold on to power. It’s no wonder Venezuelans call him “the usurper.”
Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Mexicos new president, has gotten off to a fast start. This is a dramatic change from past administrations, but its no surprise, given that AMLO, as he is known, has been waiting for over 12 years for this moment. Now that hes in power, López Obrador hasnt hesitated to shake things up.
