In this awesome clip, former President of Mexico Vicente Fox (in office from 2000-2006) slams Trump for his absurd, discriminatory, and inhumane plan to “build a wall” across the southern border and “make Mexico pay for it.” In an interview with Fusion Network‘s Jorge Ramos, who has had several run-ins with Trump in the past, Fox says that:
“I declare — I’m not going to pay for that f*cking wall. He should pay for it. He’s got the money. This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy. Democracy can’t take us to crazy people that don’t know what’s going on in the world today. It worries me, this last caucus in Nevada. He won 44 percent of Hispanics. I’d like to know who those Hispanics are because they’re followers of a false prophet.
He’s going to take them to the desert. If they think they would benefit from an administration led by Donald Trump, they are wrong. Please, you Hispanics, Latinos in the U.S., open your eyes. It’s not to defend our race. It’s not to defend our creed. It’s to defend this very same nation that is hosting you. He’s not a Republican — absolutely not. Those are not Republican principles. He’s [also] not a Democrat. He is just himself — egocentric.”
Trump did win a good number of Republican Hispanic votes – in a poll that included around 135 people and has a 10% margin of error. However, the former President makes some excellent points about the absurdity of the Trump campaign and the danger that he represents to Americans of every race and color.
