President López Obrador launches his new Tiktok account with an apology to trans representative whom he called a ‘man dressed as a woman’.

The Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, announced this Tuesday that he opened an account on the social network TikTok to reach out to a younger audience, which contrasts with foreign governments that prohibit their officials from officially using this network.

“I want to make it known to everyone, because it is broadcast this morning, sometimes I upload videos on the networks, I communicate with many citizens, many people, and I had not been able to be present on a network that young people see a lot,” said the president. at his conference.

“Since I don’t speak in a rush (fast) and there are short messages, since I had not participated in that network, which is known as TikTok, then I am going to be on TikTok,” he added.

The Presidency of the Republic shared that López Obrador’s official account is @presidenteamlo_, in which he appeared with more than five thousand followers less than an hour after its launch.

I’ll be on TikTok now. We started on this network that young people watch a lot. I had not participated here because I do not speak in a row and they are short messages,” says the first publication.

The president began with a video of his morning conference this Tuesday in which he offered an apology to a trans representative from his party, Salma Luévano, for having called her “man dressed as a woman.”

“I want to start on TikTok by offering an apology to a colleague who identifies as a woman and that yesterday I spoke about being a man dressed as a woman, I am very respectful and I believe in freedom, and people should assume themselves, anyone, as identifies,” he said.

López Obrador’s foray into TikTok contrasts with the position of the governments of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and the European Union, which last year prohibited their officials from having this application on government devices due to the alleged threat of espionage from China.

The Mexican ruler is one of the Latin American leaders with the best performance on social networks, with 4.14 million subscribers on YouTube and more than 10 million followers on both Facebook and X, formerly Twitter.

Even, according to the StreamCharts site, López Obrador was the most viewed streamer (live broadcaster) in Latin America in 2023, with more than 49 million hours watched by different users, the majority derived from his conferences uploaded to YouTube.
