translated from Spanish: I celebrate that ‘El Chapo’ wants to give his money to the poor: AMLO

President Andrés Manuel López Obrador celebrated that Joaquín ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán wishes to donate his assets to indigenous communities in Mexico.
At his morning conference, the representative said that these assets should not be seized and stayed in the United States.
“I liked the statement, I don’t know if it’s true, I can’t verify it, but if it’s as it came out in the media, that a lawyer states that Guzman Loera wants his wealth to be handed over to the indigenous communities of Mexico, I see it well, I celebrate it” López Obrador said.

López Obrador said that “no matter will stop litigate when it comes to money that remains in the United States and that can be up to Mexicans. We will take all necessary legal action.”
