As world leaders continue to felicitate with the US President-Elect, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, VP Elect, the Mexican President, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Saturday that it was too soon to congratulate Joe Biden and he would wait for “all legal issues” in the presidential election to be resolved.
Lopez Obrador told reporters, “We don’t want to be imprudent. We don’t want to act lightly and we want to respect people’s self-determination and rights,”.
“We have a very good relationship with the two candidates,”
“President Trump has been very respectful with us and we have reached very good agreements, and we thank him because he has not interfered and has respected us,” said the left-wing populist.
And “the same” go for Biden, Lopez Obrador added.
After the major US television networks announced Biden as the winner of the razor’s edged presidential election, Trump launched a slew of legal challenges and refused to concede.
Trump, during his 2016 campaign as a Republican candidate, sparked anger when he branded Mexican migrants “rapists” and drug dealers and vowed to build a wall across the southern US border.
But Lopez Obrador has managed to maintain cordial relations with Trump and even visited him in July on his first foreign trip since taking office.
