What Mexicos ex-President Vicente Fox says about bust of El Chapos wife

Former President Vicente Fox tweeted out a jab at the country’s current jefe, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, over Monday’s US drug bust of Emma Coronel Aispuro, the spouse of narcotics kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo’’ Guzman.
“Don’t worry Emma, the president will come to the rescue !! The US detains Emma Coronel, wife of ‘El Chapo,’ for drug trafficking,” Fox wrote.
Fox was apparently referring to the fact that the lefty Lopez previously pressured the Trump administration to release former Mexico Defense Secretary Salvador Cienfuegos, who was busted in the US in October on drug charges, back south of the border before trial.
Mexican prosecutors in Lopez’s administration then officially cleared Cienfuegos of the raps last month, sparking widespread criticism.Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador at the National Palace in Mexico City on Feb. 23, 2021. REUTERS/Luis Cortes
Just after Lopez took office in January 2019, Fox also ripped the self-proclaimed man-of-the-people for boasting that he owns no property. Records show everything is in Lopez’s wife’s and kids’ names.
“Only his grandmother could believe this. Wake up, Mexico!!!” Fox tweeted at the time.
The pair’s bad blood goes back at least to 2004, when Lopez, then mayor of Mexico City, routinely publicly took on then-President Fox.
