The President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, accused the United States Government this Wednesday of allowing violations of political ethics, by giving space to publications in its media that lack evidence.


In this regard, the Aztec president described as “slander” the information published by some media outlets in the United States and Germany claiming that he would have received money from drug trafficking organizations to finance his political campaign in 2006.



In the case of the United States, López Obrador said that in the neighboring country there is a lot of influence on the State Department's media and agencies, such as the one responsible for the fight against drugs, the DEA for its acronym in English.



“I denounce, not the journalist or the journalists, I don't denounce the media, I denounce the United States Government for allowing these immoral practices contrary to the political ethics that must prevail in all governments of the world,” he emphasized during a press conference.

López Obrador added that these types of publications are due to the election season, both in Mexico and in the United States.


In addition, the Mexican head of state said that a “double standard” also prevails in the United States, since his Government has a good relationship with his counterpart, Joe Biden, but at the same time there are some contrary actions by US agencies.


“The DEA and other agencies get involved, of course they get involved, especially when they're allowed to,” López Obrador said at the National Palace of Mexico City, while noting that “agencies do have a lot of influence and journalism lends itself to that.”


López Obrador pointed out that this type of campaign occurs because Mexico is currently going through “its best moment.”
