Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the President of Mexico, recently visited Washington, DC and held a press event with President Trump.
Obrador had nothing but praise for Trump and the people of the United States.
Doesn’t this defy the narrative that the liberal media has been pushing for three years?

Mexico’s president uses US visit to tout ties with Trump
Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador heaped praise on President Trump on Wednesday as the two leaders celebrated the official start of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) at the White House.
López Obrador, on his first official international trip in 19 months, hailed the Trump administration’s relationship with his country, just four months before the U.S. presidential election is set to take place.
“President Trump, like in the best times of our political relations, we have received from you during my tenure as president understanding and respect, instead of insults toward my person — and more importantly, toward my country,” the Mexican leader said at a Rose Garden ceremony.
López Obrador stuck to a historical theme for his Washington visit, comparing himself to 19th century Mexican President Benito Juárez, and Trump to Abraham Lincoln…
“That is why I’m here, to express to the people of the United States that your president has behaved toward us with gentleness and respect,” said López Obrador.

For those keeping score, in a 15 minute statement at the White House, the president of Mexico just compared President Trump to both Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.

Mexico's President has more respect for Abraham Lincoln than some Democrats in our country. https://t.co/fT6dsQV6Bf

This will completely baffle Democrats and the media, but average Americans will understand it.
