President López Obrador questioned the governor of Florida about his treatment of migrants as part of the launch of his campaign for the Presidency of the United States.
He told him he should check to see if the fentanyl has a route through Florida before he blames Mexico.
“First, do an investigation, because in one of those the drugs enter through Florida,” said the president after he asked the Hispanics of that state to “wake up” and not give him a vote.
AMLO recalled the campaigns against him in 2006
López Obrador recalled that in the dirty war of 2006 it was said that he was a danger to Mexico, and it was warned that there would be economic deterioration.
He even presented spots that circulated at that time and that were promoted by businessmen, such as the members of the Business Coordinating Council (CCE).
He said that currently no expropriations have been carried out, and that those that have been carried out are concerted. He reiterated that it is a rescue, since it is a public good.
He spoke about the expropriations that were carried out for the expansion of the Train that will connect with the AIFA. On this, he assured that they have spoken with peasants and agreements have been reached,
In the case of the Mayan Train, he recalled that those who have promoted the amparo are the businessmen, and not the peasants or ejidatarios.
President López Obrador recalled that when Carlos Salinas de Gortari’s six-year term was in office, Mexico had already climbed to fourth place with the most millionaires.
Subsequently, he presented a graph on social inequality in Mexico, which increased during the six-year term of Carlos Salinas.
He again criticized the fact that there is wealth, although he indicated that this does not necessarily represent distribution.
He also criticized that in the face of the economic crisis, it was decided to convert private debt into public debt; He told himself then, he remembered, that if the large private companies were saved, the small companies would also be saved.
The president recalled that during the pandemic, big businessmen consulted him to request debt and support them.
Instead, he said, no debt was contracted and it was decided to support “those below.”
“He who owes nothing fears nothing,” said President López Obrador when asked about the concern of residents who live near customs and the possibility that one would be expropriated to continue with works.
The president affirmed that he is not against businessmen, but against influence peddlers and corruption.
He accused that there have been influence peddlers close to power.
He said that there are those who made commitments of political subordination in the six-year term of Carlos Salinas de Gortari. According to the president, he created a compact group, which was a new oligarchy, with the assets of the people, and that was at this time when they handed over banks, mines and other assets.
The president criticized the handing over of companies to private companies and presented the book Disincorporation of Parastatals
President López Obrador presented the book “Disincorporation of parastatal entities”, where, he said, he talks about the handing over of state companies to private ones.
He spoke about the case of Banamex and Telmex, and affirmed that there has been a looting that if compared to that of colonial times, that was nothing compared to what happened in recent years.
“They created a band, a gang. A band of looters, but not only seized the assets of the people and the nation. They took over Congress; all the reforms of the neoliberal era were to favor looting, ”he pointed out.
The president presented an image in which he revealed the companies that were privatized during the previous six-year terms.
AMLO ruled on the opposition mechanism to choose its candidates
President López Obrador mocked the opposition’s method of choosing its candidates.
“They are asking for signatures, a million signatures, you have to be careful because they falsify them; I don’t speak randomly, I have proof, ”she added.
He questioned the number of applicants who will manage to get one million signatures. “They have to do work, the proposal is very good. Brilliant,” she said.
López Obrador said that from this signature the PAN will remain busy in attracting signatures and will stop criticizing his government.
President López Obrador spoke about the call to remove him from the PAN. On this, he affirmed that he has already faced accusations of this type, which occurred when he was outlawed.
He recalled that at that time the one who brought him up for these accusations was the people.
Norma Piña gave the judges “wide sleeve” by saying that they are autonomous, AMLO said
President López Obrador said that in the case of the tower that was erected in the Port of Veracruz, two judges who participated in it had conflicts of interest.
However, he recalled that if a rapist or drug dealer comes out and the government is accused.
He told Minister Norma Piña to empower judges, since in her first statements she said that “they are autonomous.” This, she added, meant giving them “broad sleeves.”

AMLO criticized Senator Julen Rementería
President López Obrador accused that the Judiciary was left in the hands of the oligarchy, because since it is a transformation, it is not possible “overnight to uproot a regime of corruption that has been imposed for a long time.”
He considered that the judiciary must be democratized and that the “best medicine” is for the people to elect judges, magistrates and ministers.
He assured that Senator Julen Rementería has benefited from the PAN, since he worked with ex-governor Miguel Ángel Yunes Linares.
He explained that due to corruption by the PAN members, a tower was allowed to be built in the historic area of the Port of Veracruz. He indicated that complaints and protections were filed, and none of them prospered.
“How is the Senator going to want to stop bossing around the Judiciary. But it is not to fight us; It is good that this debate is taking place so that the people are the ones to decide ”, he pointed out.
President López Obrador said that Senator Julen Rementería also brought in Vox, an ultra-conservative political party. “He is not frank, but it is Francoism as a policy,” he said.
And he reiterated that this type of thinking will not be successful in Mexico because “our people are liberal.”
“There has been no democracy, but oligarchy,” said AMLO
President López Obrador was questioned about the proposal to “obradorize” the Judiciary and the criticism surrounding this statement by opposition legislators.
In this regard, the president maintained that the “Judicial Power is rotten” and assured that it is a power that for many years has been subject to economic power and political power.
He said that there was a division between the Executive, Legislative and Judicial powers, but the president became “the power of powers”, since he put and removed governors, governors and ministers.
López Obrador said that with the change that his government is proposing, political power is separated from economic power.
“It is spoiled”, this is how AMLO justified the proposal of a deputy to “work” the Judiciary

He mentioned that there was a time of “gatoparismo” where things appear to change to stay the same. At this point, the president pointed out that the same economic policy and the same “potentates” were upheld.
“There has been no democracy, what there has been is an oligarchy,” said President López Obrador. Although, he reiterated, now it is different, and those who felt they owned Mexico are no longer in charge.
