Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has publicly “condemned” Republican candidate hopeful Donald Trump’s outlandish remarks made about the U.S.’ southern neighbor.
Not content with claiming that all Mexicans are “criminals”, Trump continues to bulldoze on with his plans to construct a wall separating between the two countries, to be funded by Mexico.
Peña Nieto added that Trump’s statements “are damaging to the relations which Mexico has attempted to establish with the U.S., in the creation of treaties, dialogues and an improvement (in communication), in an attempt to provide solutions for common problems through agreements and shared aims.” BBC Mundo reports.
In an additional interview with daily Excelsior, the president compared Trump to Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini, Fascist European leaders from the Second World War.
“That’s how Mussolini and that’s how Hitler rose to power: they made the most of the context, perhaps, in the form of a problem which humanity was experiencing at that point, afterwards this was through an economic crisis.” The mandate added.
