The commitment to completing the Tren Maya by the end of the year is so significant that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador conducted another day of site supervision on Father’s Day.
While leaving the hotel where he stayed in Mérida, the president took the opportunity to congratulate fathers, before heading to his meeting with Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal. “Greetings, congratulations,” he expressed.
He also had a brief encounter with Alpha Tavera Escalante, the president of the Morena State Committee in Yucatán, whom he greeted from his vehicle. “Although we already know that eternal love is for mothers and the most endearing love is for children, fathers are also adorable. Congratulations on your day!” López Obrador later posted on his social media.
