    Morales believes that the US government has not explained in detail the facts surrounding the incident in Ohio, and instead has arrested journalists trying to report on the situation.

    “Instead of explaining, arrest journalists and try to divert the attention of public opinion. With its arms interventionism and its capitalist policies that contradict its environmental discourse, the US government is the greatest danger to the world and humanity,” he added.
