Mexico’s president said he has been discussing with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken the possibility of merging the American continent into an EU-style of governance.
“Mr. Blinken talked about consolidating the North American region, and we agreed on that,” President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said during a press conference last month.
“Not only did I tell him that we were in agreement with consolidating ourselves as a region, including the three countries—Canada, the United States, Mexico—but we were also in favor of the unity of the entire American continent to repeat our project that, just as the European community first emerged and became the European Union. That is what we want, which is [Simón] Bolivar’s dream, but integrating Canada, the United States, all of the Americas.”
Concerned that Blinken appears to be having such discussions abroad, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) sent a letter to the secretary to find out more.
“Is it your position that the North American continent should be united by a regional constitution to further the economic interests of its member states?” Gaetz asked Blinken.
“Is the position of the Department of State that the United States, Canada, and Mexico should become a union of states formed in the likeness of the European Union?”
A spokesman from Gaetz’s office said on Oct. 18 that the congressman hadn’t yet received a response from Blinken.
“Our office is actively monitoring the Biden administration’s plans and will continue to communicate our concerns with the State Department,” the spokesman told The Epoch Times.
“I don’t want my constituents living under socialist tyrannical lockdowns enacted by Justin Trudeau while their nephews get poisoned by Mexican fentanyl,” Gaetz wrote on Twitter on Oct. 14.
“But that is the globalist order the Left supports, because they never thought much of America in the first place.”
