“If he makes an offensive tweet, I’m going to take responsibility for answering him,” Andrés Manuel López Obrador said Friday.
Trump has regularly attacked Mexico in speeches and on Twitter since he launched his presidential campaign in 2015.
López Obrador, the former mayor of Mexico City, said Trump needs to respect Mexican people.
“I think (Trump) is going to understand he has to get himself under control, that he can’t go around offending the Mexican people. We don’t want confrontations with him, but we are going to ask him to respect us,” he said during a campaign rally.
This is not the first time López Obrador has threatened to counter Trump’s Twitter use.
In January, López Obrador said he was going to “put him in his place.”
