VoiceMexico's president engaged in a war of words Wednesday with business and civic groups that have lodged legal challenges to one of his pet projects.
Mexican president trades barbs with business, civic groups
The groups were angered when Andrés Manuel López Obrador abandoned the previous administration's partly built airport on a former lakebed, claiming the project was drenched in corruption and cost too much.
Instead, López Obrador wants to build the new airport at a military base farther away, arguing it would cost less.
