Mexico's Presidency/Handout via REUTERSMEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Monday denied that Mexico had agreed to capture a cartel leader for the United States in order to secure the return of ex-defense minister Salvador Cienfuegos from U.S. custody. Reuters reported last week that Mexico agreed with U.S. Attorney General William Barr to seek the arrest of a high-level Mexican drug cartel leader as part of a deal to get U.S. drug trafficking charges against Cienfuegos dropped. He said it was wrong to suggest that the United States sent Cienfuegos back so that Mexico would send Washington a leader of organized crime. Mexico’s government, angry it was not forewarned about the investigation, hailed Cienfuegos’ return on Wednesday as a diplomatic achievement and a win for the nation’s sovereignty.

Mexico's Presidency/Handout via REUTERSThe face-to-face survey of 1,000 Mexicans between Nov. 12-18 by polling firm Buendia & Laredo showed Lopez Obrador had the support of 64%, bolstered by his social spending programs. Lopez Obrador is gearing up for mid-term elections due on June 6, 2021, which will determine whether he can retain control of the lower house of Congress. Easily the most popular of the president’s policies cited by respondents were welfare spending schemes which target the elderly, students and poorer rural areas, the survey showed. While Mexicans still support his handling of the pandemic, they are becoming more skeptical about it, the poll showed.

REUTERS/Carlos Jasso/File PhotoMEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Sunday called on the Group of 20 (G20) major economies to improve external debt conditions for poor and middle-income countries, as the global economy suffers a recession from the coronavirus crisis. The leftist president has warned against taking on debt and bailing out companies, even as Mexico’s economy is set to contract 10% this year, its worst slump since the Great Depression. “Our proposal consists in ... making a reality the commitment to remove sums of debt and debt-servicing to the poor nations of the world,” Lopez Obrador said in a video as part of the G20 summit. Lopez Obrador also said Mexico’s economy is meeting the government’s expectation of V-shaped recovery, and projected that by next March the number of formal jobs will bounce back to 20.5 million, the amount before the pandemic hit.

REUTERS/Carlos Jasso/File PhotoMEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Saturday urged fellow leaders from the 20 biggest world economies (G20) to steer clear of debt and bailouts in the efforts to handle the COVID-19 crisis that has caused a global recession. Within G20, Mexico is the country with the least fiscal support spending as a percentage of gross domestic product. “Avoid taking on debt and even less so if it’s for the benefit of a few, at the cost of the suffering of many,” he said. Lopez Obrador also called on countries to avoid “authoritative measures” such as confinement and curfews, and to have more trust in people to act responsibly in curbing the spread of the novel coronavirus.

MEXICO CITY/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Mexico has committed to the arrest of a high-level cartel leader under a deal with U.S. Attorney General William Barr to drop U.S. drug trafficking charges against a former Mexican defense minister, a senior Mexican source told Reuters. In return, Mexico privately told Barr it would work with the United States to arrest a high-level cartel leader involved with trafficking large quantities of the synthetic opioid fentanyl, the source said. It has not been previously reported that Barr extracted a promise to hone in on a senior cartel leader in return for releasing Cienfuegos. The United States flew Cienfuegos back to Mexico on Wednesday, after a U.S. federal judge dropped charges against him at Barr’s request. It is the leading cause of overdose deaths in the United States.

MEXICO CITY — Mexico passed the 100,000 mark in confirmed COVID-19 deaths, becoming only the fourth country to do so amid concerns about the lingering physical and psychological scars on survivors. José Luis Alomía Zegarra, Mexico’s director of epidemiology, announced late Thursday that Mexico had 100,104 confirmed COVID-19 deaths, behind only the United States, Brazil and India. Mexico’s number includes only test-confirmed deaths; the true toll is far higher. “Just because the ones who used to steal and loot don’t like what we are doing, or don’t like seeing us in power? ”Mexico’s point man on the pandemic, Assistant Health Secretary Hugo López-Gatell, bristled Thursday when asked about Mexico reaching 100,000 deaths, criticizing the media for “being alarmist.” López-Gatell has angrily rejected criticisms that the government is undercounting COVID-19 deaths or providing contradictory and weak advice on using face masks.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s Senate approved a landmark cannabis legalization bill in a landslide vote on Thursday, paving the way for the creation of the world’s largest legal marijuana market if the initiative passes the next hurdle in the lower house of Congress. Marijuana leaves are seen next to Mexico's Senate building at the protest cannabis garden of the Cannabico Mexican Movement in Mexico City, Mexico November 19, 2020. Lopez Obrador’s left-of-center Morena party, which backed the initiative, holds a majority in both chambers of Congress with its allies. Weed companies have expressed interest in a future Mexican legal market, including Canada's Canopy Growth WEED.TO and The Green Organic Dutchman TGOD.TO, as well as a unit of California-based Medical Marijuana Inc MJNA.PK. Sales to adults in authorized businesses would be allowed, provided the product abides by maximum levels of psychoactive ingredients.

MEXICO CITY—Mexico said Thursday it will no longer allow officials accused of corruption to be tried in the United States, a move that could end a decades-old tradition in which most of Mexico’s high-profile drug-trafficking and corruption cases have been tried north of the border. Ebrard's statement was not clear on whether Mexico would continue extraditing accused drug traffickers to face charges in U.S. courts, as it has done often in the past, or whether he was only referring to officials accused of collaborating with drug gangs. That decision came after reports that Mexico had threatened to expel the Drug Enforcement Administration’s regional director and agents. He was also accused of introducing cartel leaders to other corrupt Mexican officials. Mexican officials complained that the U.S. failed to share evidence against Cienfuegos and that his arrest came as a surprise.

Lopez Obrador’s statement during his regular morning news conference came after multiple outlets reported Mexico had threatened the agents’ expulsion after the United States arrested the powerful Mexican general at the Los Angeles airport last month. Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard reiterated that Mexico had warned of a review of security cooperation in retaliation for not being given advance notice about the investigation and arrest, but emphasized that there was no specific threat regarding expelling agents. The United States dropped the drug trafficking and money laundering charges earlier this week and turned over the investigation to Mexico after diplomatic tensions over the case.

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Thursday said his government did not threaten to expel U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents from Mexico in retaliation for former defense minister Salvador Cienfuegos’ arrest on American soil. “They are saying that we threatened to expel the DEA agents; we did not threaten anyone. General Cienfuegos, defense secretary under Mexico’s then-President Enrique Peña Nieto, was arrested in October at the Los Angeles international airport and accused by U.S. prosecutors of collaborating with one of Mexico’s most powerful drug cartels. Both the Mexican president and foreign minister emphasized that Mexico was committed to conducting a proper investigation of the powerful general. Some international security analysts have questioned whether Cienfuegos will be properly prosecuted in Mexico.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge was expected on Wednesday to grant a U.S. government request to drop drug corruption charges against former Mexican Defense Minister Salvador Cienfuegos Zepeda, to allow Mexican officials to investigate him. Cienfuegos, 72, had served as Mexico’s defense minister from 2012 to 2018 under former President Enrique Pena Nieto. The Mexican government said its case was based entirely on evidence provided by the United States. Following the arrest, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador threatened to review agreements establishing how U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents operated in the country. Cienfuegos’ case set off a flurry of frantic calls between Barr, DEA Acting Administrator Timothy Shea, and Mexican officials to calm tensions.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcel Ebrard said the retired army general could be flown back within days. The Mexican government said its case was based entirely on evidence provided by the United States. While in office, Cienfuegos had worked closely with U.S. counterparts on cross-border criminal matters and was a leading Mexican figure fighting that country’s drug war. Following the arrest, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador questioned the work of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents in the country, saying they had been close to Cienfuegos for years. The case set off a flurry of frantic calls between Barr, DEA Acting Administrator Timothy Shea, and Mexican officials to calm tensions.

Cienfuegos, 72, was Mexico’s defense minister from 2012 to 2018 under former President Enrique Pena Nieto. The charges prompted Mexico’s current government to threaten a review of agreements allowing U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents to operate in the country. Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said Cinefuegos’ arrest had damaged the trust needed for bilateral cooperation fighting drug gangs, and the dismissal of the charges laid a foundation for future cooperation.

The feeling in the room was not that Mr. Cienfuegos should have been spared prosecution, but that American law enforcement had violated their trust by keeping Mexico unaware of the investigation of such an important figure, the people said. Enraged military officials pushed the government to take action. The frustration quickly began to spill out into the public sphere. When asked how to interpret the lack of communication from U.S. officials, Mr. López Obrador did not mince his words. “There will be a revision,” of Mexico’s collaboration with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, Mr. Ebrard said in an interview with Proceso magazine.

Carlos Barria | ReutersPresident Donald Trump's continued refusal to concede 2020 elections poses a host of national security dangers. President-elect Biden wishes to counter President Trump's continued influence and fulfill his goal of being the unifying leader for all Americans and for global democracies. To do so, they'll need to study the four central motivations for President Trump's actions that have followed the Nov. 3 elections. President Trump believes law may allow him to even pardon himself, a concept that almost certainly would be tested, up to and including the Supreme Court. President-elect Biden on the campaign trail has said he wouldn't pardon Trump.
