Two years of López Obrador: “Progressive” Subordination to Trump and the U.S.

Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has become friends with President Trump. No longer is AMLO attempting to fake standing against the northern neighbor; the subordination of Mexico continues unabated. Only class struggle on both sides of the border will help the Mexican worker.
