“President I don’t think he’s getting up, and I don’t think he’s done the thinking and I’m sorry to say, how he spoils Mexico.”
This phrase from former President Enrique Peña Nieto has echoed in my head in recent days, especially in the morning when I turned on the television and the President of the Republic appeared at his morning conference, with a tired and bloated figure already. Without letting go of that problematic attitude he assumes every day when there are no accomplishments to show off.
Only this week it was noted that it has attacked the World Health Organization (WHO), calling it ineffective for not giving certifications to the Sputnik and CanSino vaccines, where millions of vaccinated Mexicans have been vaccinated. Travel to countries where the effectiveness of these vaccines is not recognized because they have not been validated by the World Health Organization.
“I understand things are going slow at the palace, but I don’t accept that elsewhere,” he said.
The head of the federal executive authority considered that the global health authorities acted negligently in this regard and warned that the certification of vaccines should not be subject to ideological and political criteria.
“The United States has decided that only those who have been vaccinated with the vaccines they authorize enter (their country), based on the authorization of the World Health Organization, and the obstacle is in the World Health Organization, and hopefully they can solve it soon, and they can do it in 72 hours, they remained in This is for a long time and there can be no political or ideological justification involved, it would be absurd for the WHO to act on political criteria.I think it is more laziness.
What Lopez might not expect was a strong and quick response from the organization’s director, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who told him in a few words not to talk about what he didn’t know and that if he had doubts, “send your experts,” referring to someone with a greater understanding and knowledge of the subject.
The National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) was another victim of the president’s attacks this week. On Thursday, he said, UNAM had lost its essence and became individualistic after the neoliberal period passed. A day later he insisted on criticism and lamented that the establishment had “turned to the right”.
“Not only UNAM, all universities have succumbed to neoliberal thought, all of them. It is unfortunate that the UN mission has shifted to the right as it has recently.”
But the authorities of the National Autonomous University of Mexico have not been silent either, and through a press release, they replied that in their classrooms and facilities “upright citizens are formed, with independent thought, without imposed ideologies.”
He stressed that “the historical commitment and solidarity of the National University with the homeland is beyond doubt.”
President López Obrador is accustomed to giving his opinion of everything without knowing the facts, criticizing without controversy, judging and making judgments, being the one with the last word and looking for enemies at every morning conference, almost always without an answer.
AMLO is a president who, as we already know, neglects forms, does not understand diplomacy and does not care about harming businessmen, scientists, international organizations, educational institutions and all that is a distraction to disguise his bad government. He does it every day in La Mañanera, and then I have doubts about the famous Peña Nieto ferry. No president gets up and thinks about how to spoil Mexico?
