White House hopeful Donald Trump loves telling his supporters (and anyone who'll listen) that he plans to build a big wall between Mexico and the United States, and he has a plan to MAKE Mexico pay for the wall.
In a recent interview Vicente Fox, former President of Mexico, said Trump has another thing coming.
From Real Clear Politics:
In an interview Thursday with Jorge Ramos on Fusion, former Mexican president Vicente Fox responds to Donald Trump’s plan to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexican border. “I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall! He should pay for it. He’s got the money,” Fox said.
“Are you afraid that he’s going to be the next President of the United States?” Ramos asked. “What would that mean for Mexico?”
“No no no, democracy can not take that, crazy people that don’t know what is going on in the world today. This worries me, the last caucus in Nevada… he won 44 percent of Hispanics.”
“I’d like to know who those Hispanics are, because they are followers of a false prophet,” Fox said. “He’s going to take them to the desert, and if they think that they will benefit with an administration led by Donald Trump, they’re wrong. They must open their eyes. Please, you Hispanics in the U.S., open your eyes.”
Trump did boast that he won 44% of Hispanic voters in Nevada. What he fails to articulate is that the 44% represents the total of Hispanic voters who took part in the REPUBLICAN caucus. Hispanic voters comprise about 16% of all voters in Nevada. Which means he actually got about 7% of the Latino vote.
In any case, Trump continues to say Latinos love him, but the facts say otherwise.
