Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador isn’t happy.
Mexico just sent a diplomatic note to the US claiming they are funding “coup plotters”.
Mexico has sent a diplomatic note asking the United States to suspend funding for an anti-corruption group critical of the government, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Friday.
Lopez Obrador said the formal protest was sent because of financial backing for Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity (MCCI), a group that investigates political corruption. The president says the group is seeking to undermine his government.
“It’s interference, it’s interventionism, it’s promoting coup plotters,” said Lopez Obrador, describing funding that includes money from the U.S. Agency for International Development, commonly known as USAID, as an affront to Mexico’s sovereignty.
“That’s why we’re asking that (the U.S. government) clarifies this for us. A foreign government can’t provide money to political groups.”
