Funny thing is, when Fox was apologizing for his previous actions a few months ago, he also invited Trump to Mexico. So do you, or do you not, want Trump to visit, Fox? You’re giving us mixed signals.
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox was aghast at the news that President Enrique Peña Nieto planned to meet with Republican nominee Donald Trump in Mexico today.
‘I think it’s nothing more than a political stunt. Trump is using Mexico, is using President Peña to boost his sinking poll numbers,’ Fox said on CNN’s ‘New Day.’ ‘I think that President Peña is taking an enormous political risk by hosting Trump. If he’s perceived as going soft on Trump it will hurt him greatly.’
‘He will even be considered like a traitor,’ the ex-president suggested, noting that Mexicans don’t like to be offended.
But Trump, taking to Twitter this morning, was quick to point out that Fox had once extended an invitation to the GOP billionaire as well.
‘Former President Vicente Fox, who is railing against my visit to Mexico today, also invited me when he apologized for using the “f bomb,”‘ Trump wrote.
The original Fox outburst occurred in February when the former Mexican leader went on a profanity-laced tirade, saying he would not pay for the ‘f—ing wall.’
Trump has long called for a border wall to be built between Mexico and the United States, promising supporters that he’d get Mexico to pay for it.
Fox also called Trump ‘ignorant,’ ‘crazy,’ egocentric,’ nasty’ and a ‘false prophet,’ the latter of which he used to describe Trump again today.
Trump called on Fox to apologize.
That didn’t come until May when Breitbart News sat down with Fox in Santa Monica, California.
‘I apologize. Forgiveness is one of the greatest qualities that human beings have, is the quality of a compassionate leader. You have to be humble. You have to be compassionate. You have to love thy neighbor,’ he told reporters.
