Lopez Obrador intends to wait for the results of the Trump team’s lawsuits challenging the election results.
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador once again refused to congratulate Joe Biden as the elected president of the United States, saying that the time has not yet come for this and that his country “is not a colony”.
López Obrador said he would wait for the results of the lawsuits filed by the Donald Trump headquarters in connection with the vote.
“We cannot recognize a government that has not yet been formed legally and legitimately,” he said at a press conference. – It’s not up to us, it’s government intervention.
Lopez Obrador said there will be no consequences for Mexico because of this.
That’s because we have a policy based on principles,” he said. – Besides, we are not a colony. We’re a free, independent, sovereign country. The Mexican government is not a puppet of any foreign government.
Biden’s transition team said he received phone calls from leaders in Australia and Japan and many other countries around the world.
