Donald Trump, former president of the United States, assured that Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he is a socialist that "likes him", and that he does not consider him a "bad person".

The above was detailed by Trump during a rally in Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Friday night, where he again referred to the Mexican president.

"I like the president (AMLO), he's a socialist, but he's OK. That doesn't make him a bad person, but in this country (the United States) we do have some really bad people," he said.

The former US president said that Mexico "had no choice" but to put 28,000 soldiers on the border during his administration to contain migration, otherwise they would have put "tariffs all over the place".

"They said 'we'd love to give you the soldiers, free of charge, sir,' they were great," Trump told his supporters in Wisconsin-.

"You know, drug dealers, each drug dealer kills approximately 500 people in their lifetime, many kill thousands and thousands of people. I think last year we lost 250,000 people to drugs coming across our border, and two years ago we had that number at the lowest it's been in a long time," he added.

A few days ago in Washington D.C., Trump left the door open to run again for the U.S. Presidency in 2024.

"I ran the first time and won. Then I ran a second time and did much better. I got many millions more votes. Maybe we have to do it again," he said, assuring that the current situation in the country, with uncontrolled crime levels, in his opinion, makes it necessary for the Republicans to return to power.
