    Default Nada de nadie??

    Qué significa esta oración: El presidente aseguró que no quería nada de nadie y que no era un momento para confrontaciones, por lo que tras consultar con sus asesores decidió dimitir.

    Lo creo que quiera decir: The president assured that he didn't want anything from anyone and didn't want confrontations and after consulting with his advisors he decided to step down.

    Muchas gracias para su ayudar!

    In general your translatin is fine but it would be more accruate to say "this was not a time for confrontations" instead of "he didn't want confrontations".

    I think you're right. At first sight, it doesn't sound really good in Spanish. How would you translate that sentence?

    Sujeto a correccion:

    The President assured he did not want anything from anyone and that was not time for confrontations, so after consulting with his advisors, he decided to step down.

    Just another option-
