As I write, it looks like AMLO has crushed the second-highest candidate vote two-to-one and swept the House of Deputies. However, his coalition of parties is, as of the moment, showing poorly in the Senate race, way below pre-election polling data.
AMLO: Arrest Trump
Mexicans have had enough of the Trump-ito grifters who have held the Mexican presidency, usually by theft, for decades.
President Peña Nieto made his nation cringe with his invitation to Trump during the US Presidential campaign, boosting Trump's candidacy. And he's not had much to say about the caging of children on the border.
Although Trump's child prisoners and their families detained at the border are not Mexican citizens (most come from Central America), AMLO has called for Trump's arrest for the kidnappings as violating international law.
That's just one indication AMLO's victory is Trump's nightmare. AMLO has shown he is not afraid of privileged pricks, even if they try to make themselves look fierce by staining themselves orange.
Weirdly, Lopez Obrador has also been called "The Trump of Mexico," simply because they both speak to the desperation of their nation's working classes. And both have few good words for NAFTA.
But Trump's act, the billionaire turned class warrior, was always a fake. AMLO is for real.
