In the interview, Klobuchar, Steyer cannot name the Mexican president

-

Democratic presidential candidates Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer were at a loss when asked during a television interview in Nevada to name the Mexican president.

Klobuchar, Steyer and his 2020 candidate, Pete Buttigieg, were asked on Thursday evening in one-on-one interviews with Spanish-language broadcaster Telemundo whether they knew the name of the president whose country borders on the United States. It is Andrés Manuel López Obrador who took office in December 2018.

Klobuchar, a three-time Senator from Minnesota, replied, “No.”

Steyer, a billionaire businessman, replied, “I forgot.”

Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, was the only one of the three who knew the answer. “Lopez Obrador, I hope,” he said with a smile.

The interviews took place after a candidate forum hosted by the League of United Latin American Citizens, the largest Hispanic civil rights organization in the country. Buttigieg, Klobuchar and Steyer were the only candidates for 2020 who were present. Vermont’s Senator Bernie Sanders addressed the audience via video.

Nevada has a large immigrant population and Hispanics are a critical constituency for Democrats. The state will be the third to weigh the Democratic President’s nomination when it holds its meetings on February 22.
