Trump imprimió su firma en los cheques de rescate de 1.200 dólares que salieron del Tesoro de Estados Unidos. De forma similar, el gobierno de Bolsonaro se aseguró de que los receptores de la ayuda en Brasil supieran a quién darle las gracias [...] parte del gusto por la adulación y la proyección del propio poder habituales entre líderes populistas.
Esta es una crisis de salud pública que requiere conocimientos y ciencia para resolverse. Por naturaleza, los populistas (...) tienen un desdén por los expertos y la ciencia que se perciben como dentro del sistema. 
Brazil has a wealth of expertise and the United States does, too. But the problem is, the populist politics makes it very difficult to implement rational policies that really resolve the issue — or at least manage the crisis more effectively.
This is a public health crisis that requires expertise and science to resolve. Populists by nature ... have a disdain for experts and science that are seen as part of the establishment.
O potencial de tensão com o governo Bolsonaro é muito claro... Mas Biden tem estilo construtivo, conhece o Brasil e valoriza a parceria com o País. Dependerá, honestamente, de como o governo Bolsonaro agir.
Si bien AMLO le concedió un regalo para que Trump busque un mayor apoyo entre los votantes hispanos, el líder mexicano también consiguió lo que buscaba. Él está interesado por la política doméstica en México. AMLO (está) sintiendo un poco su caída en las encuestas por la economía y la pandemia y puede conseguir una subida modesta en las encuestas.
Trump puede presumir de uno de sus pocos logros en política exterior y afirmar que al renegociar el TLCAN, Estados Unidos terminó con un mejor acuerdo. También puede aparecer con un presidente mexicano, cuyo pueblo e inmigrantes Trump ha insultado implacablemente, sin embargo, ha sido notablemente complaciente con el mandatario de EE.UU en una serie de cuestiones binacionales.
Trump can tout one of his few foreign policy achievements and claim that by renegotiating NAFTA, the United States ended up with a better deal. He can also appear with a Mexican president, whose people and migrants Trump has relentlessly insulted but who has nonetheless been notably accommodating to the US president on a range of issues. López Obrador seems determined to keep Trump happy and keep the United States at bay.
The clearest measure of that accommodation towards Trump has been on the immigration issue, with Mexico adopting a hard-line security approach on its southern border. Mr. Lopez Obrador’s goal seems to be to keep Trump happy and the United States at bay, even more so than previous, non-leftist Mexican presidents.
Before his resounding election victory two years ago, AMLO leveled harsh denunciations against Trump and his administration that resulted in a book, ‘Oye, Trump’ (‘Listen, Trump’). He fiercely opposed [Mr. Trump’s] border wall and vowed to counter all of Trump’s anti-Mexico tweets. On that score, AMLO positioned himself as a leftist, setting up what seemed to be an inevitable clash with Trump. But right after his win, AMLO sang a radically different tune, starting with an over-the-top friendly letter to Trump that signaled a notably accommodationist stance towards the US administration, a move not exactly out of the leftist playbook.
