“We want to have a good relationship with the government of the United States,” Lopez Obrador said on Friday. He added: “We will continue to help, so that the flows of migrants, those who pass by our country to do so according to the law, in an orderly manner.”

The Trump-government threatened, before you drive back or cut off U.S. aid to Central America.
