President Taft with President of Mexico Porfirio Diaz in 1909. The meeting was held in Ciudad Juarez.
They got the drippy drip 🔥
Especially the dude on the far left with the white pants.

Diaz wouldn’t be President of Mexico for much longer after this.
Diaz is hands down my favorite Mexican president. Very interesting. His decades long run as president is known as the porfiriato and was seen as a great time for Mexican growth and modernization. Very fitting seeing him with Taft. Badass mustache gang right here
I agree that he is a very interesting President! I think the porfiriato was great but Diaz´s authoritarian actions taint his legacy in my opinion. He is a very interesting President and one of the most memorable Mexican Presidents.
Yeah like I’m not a fan of authoritarianism in general and oppose it if I have to live under it, but I really find his era to be very interesting and I think at the end of the day he was a strong leader who knew what he was doing. I like that he saw immigration to his country as a strength rather than an invasion like how some see it today. But I also see why there were people who didn’t like him
I never thought of this till now, Taft must have made the imposing figure, it seems he is taller then all those in picture, and clearly bigger.
I agree! Taft is a big man. I also enjoyed reading the letter he sent to his wife with his thoughts and experience with this historic meeting.
