Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador,the leading presidential candidate in the Mexico elections has vowed to hit back at US president Donald Trump if he insults Mexico on Twitter.

 Lopez who holds a double digit in this coming July 1st presidential race said”If he makes an offensive tweet, I’m going to take responsibility for answering him,”

“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,”said Lopez during a campaign rally in the southern district of Oaxaca.

Enrique Pena Nieto who is Mexico’s current president has rarely replied to Trump with his foreign team insisting that  all diplomatic issue will not be discussed on the social media.

 Mr Lopez Obrador who is making his third presidential bid has come from being an occasional tweeter to increasing the use of social media during his campaign.
