'No intervention:' Mexico president reacts to Trump's cartel terrorism plan
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Wednesday rejected “interventionism” after U.S. President Donald Trump said he was working to designate the Latin American country’s drug cartels as terrorist organizations.
Lopez Obrador said Mexico would take up the issue after the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday and that he had asked his foreign minister to lead talks.
“Cooperation, yes, intervention, no” Lopez Obrador said in a morning news conference when asked about Trump’s comments.
Cartels “will be” designated, Trump said in an interview with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly, broadcast on Tuesday, adding he had been working for 90 days on the process.
