AZBD Note: “Will Mexico Morph Into Venezuela-Style Failed State?”… History says yes. Prepare accordingly.
Mexico Votes: Beset by corruption, poverty and endemic violence, Mexican voters sent a message of desperation on Sunday by voting overwhelmingly to make socialist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador their next president. This is bad for the U.S., but even worse for Mexico.
President Trump did the neighborly thing in congratulating Obrador on his victory and pledged to work with him. But in fact Obrador’s win bodes ill for future relations.
