Here comes the press again misleading the people, why I'm not surprised? Your head story should be AMLO is the first president in the history of the continent fighting openly against corruption and that's exactly why The Financial Times is against him, free does not exist, you are here just to manipulate people so they stay quiet when the real bosses do something stupid or inhumane. And AMLO is not a strong man. Learn some real mexican history and politics before you do deceive even more people.

Listen to the british of Financial Times using the same buzz-words of always like : " populist", or "Strong man" to describe leaders as dictators, or as men above every one in their countries every time these leaders do not follow the capitalist, stock markets sermon...

Financial Times what are you smoking? AMLO is a sweetheart. Not a strong man you physchos. We all can see what you are doing. Setting up the stage to attack him so the U.S. oil companies can continue selling the oil they steal from Mexico back to Mexicans. It is not going to work! He is the most loved president in Mexican history. #handsoffamlo #amlo

This article lies. The president of Mexico is not a communist like Castro, Chavez or Maduro. He proposes a mixed model, with free market, private companies, international trade, the best of capitalism with some things of "socialism" as public and free education, healt care, and some sectors in government hands such as oil, electricity and water, because history has shown that when these sectors are handled by giant companies they charge abusive prices and basic needs for living become a big business. Unlike Chavez, AMLO is aware that a country can go to a broken bank if it does not take care of its ingrates and expenditures, also knows that there is no debt to the IMF because they charge very expensive loans. It is different from the communists, because it does not think it stays in power perpetually, nor is it against private property. To whom in Mexico we can study a university career, without getting into debt or paying abusive prices, water and electricity have fair prices. Financial Times is in collusion with huge companies that do business with basic needs and oil companies, so he does not like AMLO and says he will be a communist dictator. Greetings from Mexico.

Nothing to compare AMLO with Bolsonaro, our Mexican president is not violent, he is making a lot of changes in only two months, he will be the best president of Mexico’s history. Bolsonaro comes from the military and he is as crazy as Trump, he is an aggressive man who is wanting a war in Venezuela.

What a disgraceful video, made by people who don't understand a thing, who've probably only been in Mexico or Brasil on a very short beach trip (or worse, who have never been in any of "those" countries). I don't think you understand what "populism" means... Why would you call AMLO a "populist"? He has been elected democratically by many people, young and old, by intellectuals and handworkers, by both poor and rich, and he's a defender of a real democracy, where every voice is heard (not like in many western countries nowadays, where we tend to be more and more radical and polarized). He has accepted his defeat twice in the past, the country wasn''t ready for this change, but after more than three decades of pure corruption, people voted, indeed for a radical change, but against corruption, in favor of a positive, democratic change. How can you compare a militarist, a Trump admirer, with someone like AMLO? Please do your job well, make real news, not fake news and make documentaries only about the things you understand... I would have expected much more from FT... Perhaps it would be good to do some studying on words like "democracy", "populism", before making such a misleading documentary...

AMLO is a protestant-evangelical protestant in a Catholic country and a leftist-communist in a conservative and democratic nation. // AMLO likes baseball but Mexico likes fútbol. // AMLO is in fact, a U.S leftist puppet dictator and must be impeached with his boss Donald Trump.

It is clear that you do not know anything about the history of each country by not knowing how to compare the very different problems that each country has, as well as it is clear that you can't portray any factual information about politics and the economic situation of any country in under 3 minutes.

AMLO is receiving *death threats* for finally fixing damages in Mexico that were left untouched by former presidents. Corrupt individuals tried to bribe him already and he informed the country immediately. Many countries who support USA have thrown shade on him. He wants the country to be independent and make it out as an exemplary first world country filled with culture. Articles of business ppl from Europe, Asia and USA have testified that they desire for MX to go down hill for them to exploit its natural resources, GDP, including its inhabitants.
