Tom Steyer and Amy Klobuchar Cannot Name Mexican President

In recent Spanish-language television interviews, Democratic presidential candidates Tom Steyer (D-Calif.) and Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) were unable to recall the name of the President of Mexico, as The Daily Caller reports.

When asked during the Telemundo interviews, both the billionaire and senator simply responded “no” when asked if they could name the Mexican President, Andres Manual Lopez Obrador, who is frequently referred to as “AMLO.” South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-Ind.) was able to correctly name the Mexican leader.

The interviews followed a presidential town hall that was hosted by the League of United Latin American Citizens, an advocacy group advancing the concerns of Hispanic Americans. Buttigieg, Klobuchar, and Steyer were the only presidential candidates in attendance at the event.

Both the interview and the town hall were held in preparation for the upcoming Nevada caucuses on February 22nd, the third contest in the Democratic primaries and the first to be held by a state with a significant Hispanic population.
