MEXCIAN PRESIDENT Just Issued A THREAT To Interfere In American Elections…
The drug crisis at the US-Mexico border has reached a boiling point, with cartels smuggling loads of fentanyl into America. While the US is finally taking action against the cartels, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is not happy about being blamed.
He's even threatening to interfere in US elections by launching an "information campaign" against Republicans. The Mexican president has warned that he will actively discourage Mexicans and Hispanics from voting for the Republican party.
"We are going to call for them not to vote for that party because it is interventionist, inhumane, hypocritical, and corrupt," said Lopez Obrador. He also accused Republicans of disrespecting Mexico's sovereignty by using it for their propaganda and political purposes.
This comes after Republican Senator Lindsey Graham called for the US to go after the Mexican drug cartels, promising to "unleash the fury and might of the United States" against them. Graham plans to introduce legislation that would label the cartels as foreign terrorist organizations, giving the US military the power to enter Mexico and destroy drug labs that are poisoning Americans.
The President of Mexico said yesterday he would campaign against Republicans wanting to label the cartel as a terrorists organization.

But Mexican-born Republican Congresswoman Mayra Flores pointed out the hypocrisy of the Mexican president's statement. While Lopez Obrador wants to interfere in US elections, Democrats are taking an even more aggressive stance against Mexican leadership. Some House Democrats are asking the US Secretary of Homeland Security to strip away Mexican elected officials' US visas.
There is a disagreement about where the fentanyl is being produced. The DEA claims it is being produced in Mexico, while Lopez-Obrador denies this and blames the moral decay of America for the drug crisis.
"Here, we do not produce fentanyl, and we do not have consumption of fentanyl," he said. "Why don't they [the United States] take care of their problem of social decay?"
Regardless of where the fentanyl is being produced, the fact remains that it is flooding into the US and killing Americans. And while some Mexican officials are calling for cooperation and solutions, others are threatening to interfere in US politics.
As tensions rise, it's clear that both countries will need to work together to find a solution to this deadly crisis.
