AMLO pointed out that after a start with 36,685 cases in 2018, the figure remained practically the same for two years: «I respect your point of view, but I do not share it.»

«A true tragedy, with all due respect, is what happens where you live, in the United States, a tragedy is that 100,000 people lose their lives due to Fentanyl consumption,» said AMLO.

«That is your vision, and it is the vision of our opponents, and I respect it (…) It is where there is growth, there is employment, there is well-being,» the president responded in the midst of the conflict.
