Andrés Manuel López Obrador, also known by his initials AMLO, is a Mexican politician serving as the 65th president of Mexico since 1 December 2018.
He won a landslide victory for promising to end corruption in the judicial and political system and reduce drug war violence in Mexico.
He is considered a central left candidate, yet in terms of his economic reforms, he has been criticized as a protectionist from Western countries that believe Mexico should be more open to foreign conglomerates. In turn, Western Media has led to a wave of negative news coverage of the Mexican President.
During his Term, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has implemented austerity measures to reduce Mexico’s debt. Western Media had tried in vain to paint López Obrador into an Ultra-leftism President. Instead, his Policy has been considered compassionate Conservatism, deciding to give bailouts to the ordinary people during the Covid Pandemic instead of large corporations, all while paying down Mexico’s debt.
The Mexican President has also called out monopolies in Mexico’s economy and even started new state-run companies to introduce competition in a market run by (monopolies) in order to lower prices via competition.
Anti Price gouging policy was also implemented after Gas Production went up and prices did not follow. Not surprisingly the Gas monopolies in the Mexican market were not happy about this action.
