The Mexican President was criticized for visiting Trump a few months before the U.S. elections, although he argues the visit is meant to commemorate the implementation of the USMCA and to thank the U.S. for taking additional oil cuts and for selling ventilators to Mexico amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite Trump’s comments on Mexico, López Obrador has had a surprisingly warm relationship with Trump. Both presidents talk about a blossoming friendship and often complement each other.
