Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has demanded that Mexico raise the wages of all auto workers so that the US can better compete within NAFTA.
AMLO is calling Trump's bluff: he said, "yes" -- which may come as a shock to Secretary Ross" Ross owns eight of those auto factories.
Hope and Danger
The slogan of AMLO's coalition is, Juntos Haremos Historia. Together, we'll make history. But history has a way of bleeding to death in Mexico.
In March 1994, Luis Donaldo Colosio was on the cusp of winning Mexico's presidency. But his political turn to the Left infuriated his PRI bosses. At a public rally where he supposedly had government protection, one assassin, and possibly a second, put two bullets in his head.
I hope AMLO's story will have a happier ending.
