“There are two things that never change: walls and wheels … There are two things that will never change in a thousand years: a wheel and a wall. They work,” he said, highlighting the “fantastic” work of the “great knight” Andrés Manuel López emerged Obrador, the Mexican president, whom he received at the White House on Friday.
