WASHINGTON — Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández is in Washington only days after U.S. federal prosecutors accused him of essentially running a narco-state and of having received campaign contributions from cocaine traffickers in exchange for protection.
Hernández denies the accusations and on Tuesday sent a tweet of himself jogging at the National Mall. Hernández plans to meet with Luis Almagro, Secretary General of the Organization of American States. His office says he plans to attend a meeting of the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission.
Both President Donald Trump and members of Congress are out of Washington due to the summer recess.
A spokesperson from the Drug Enforcement Administration says there are there are no planned meetings with Hernández.
