During the daily press conference of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on April 4, Peoples Dispatch co-editor Zoe Alexandra had the opportunity to ask AMLO how he responds to right-wing attacks in Mexico and across the region.

He said that the right-wing is hypocritical and threatened by a government that builds with and for the people.
