Amy Klobuchar, Tom Steyer couldn’t name Mexican president in interview

Democratic presidential candidates Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer couldn’t name the Mexican president when asked for it during a televised interview in Nevada Thursday.

The two, along with Pete Buttigieg, were separately interviewed by Spanish-language station Telemundo after a candidate forum hosted by the League of United Latin American Citizens.

Klobuchar, a Minnesota senator, replied, “No,” when asked who the Mexican president is.

“I forgot,” was billionaire businessman Tom Steyer’s response.

Presidential hopefuls Tom Steyer and Amy Klobuchar each reportedly drew a blank when asked to name the president of Mexico during a campaign event in Nevada.

Buttigieg, the former South Bend, Indiana mayor, was the only candidate to correctly name Mexico’s president, Andrés Manuel López Obrado, though he didn’t seem too confident.

“Lopez Obrador, I hope,” he answered with a smile.

No other 2020 presidential candidates were present at Thursday’s forum, but Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders addressed the audience via video.
