Ken Salazar arrived in Mexican territory in mid-2021, imposed by the president of the United States, Joe Biden, as the new ambassador; However, despite the good relationship they appear, there would be some problems with Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
The above was narrated by the journalist Raymundo Riva Palacio in his recent column for Ejecentral, where he mentioned that the president of Mexico “is angry with the new ambassador” and that he “already irritated him.”
According to the columnist, Andrés Manuel privately assures that one of his main problems is that Salazar has been in charge of hurting the existing bilateral relationship between the two countries, which is why he would seek to complain about it to the North American president.
The climax of the conflict came, according to Riva Palacio, when Ken Salazar warned that the United States supported the million-dollar investments of North American companies in the national territory, which are in danger with the electricity reform.
AMLO immediately denied that there were bad relations, but he would have expressed his discomfort to the ambassador at the meetings he has had with businessmen in the energy sector.
However, the columnist warned EjecentralObrador treads on swampy ground by directly meddling with investments, which he considered represents “a hostile act against the United States.”
“That must be understood by López Obrador to measure his words and actions. However, he does not seem to understand it, nor does anyone explain it to him, ”he wrote.
Riva Palacio also considered that Andrés Manuel López Obrador should think with a cool head and be intelligent, because “he cannot extrapolate his morning belligerence to the world because the only one who loses respect and becomes the object of mockery is him.”

The White House reported on June 15 that Democrat Ken Salazar was chosen by the President of the United States, Joe Biden, to head the diplomatic work in Mexico within his administration.
He began his career in the public sector, in the local Colorado administration, in 1986 when he became the legal advisor to Governor Roy Roemer. Years later, in 1990, he was appointed as director of the Department of Natural Resources, a site that he headed until 1994.
From 1998 to 2002 he served as Attorney General for the state of Colorado. His work in this position was recognized at the federal level due to the creation of new divisions to monitor environmental crimes, combat criminal gangs, and prosecute fugitives.
The recognition of his work led him to run for the United States Senate for the southern state in 2004, after Republican Ben Nighthorse decided to retire; took office on January 4, 2005.

After the resounding victory of the Democrat Barack Obama for the leadership of the US executive, in December 2008 he was nominated by the new president to be the Secretary of the Interior. On January 20, 2009, he was confirmed by the Senate to fill the post after a unanimous vote.
Throughout his political career, the native of the state of Colorado has been one of the most fervent supporters of the Latino vote in the United States.
It is for this reason that Latino groups, primarily those with members of Mexican descent, celebrated the news of the 66-year-old Democrat’s appointment.
