COMMENTARY & OPINION:
A couple of weeks ago former Mexican el presidente Vicente Fox stated during an interview that Mexico is not going to pay for Trump’s “f*cking wall” and went on to suggest Trump himself pay for it since he has so much money. Fox was referring to GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s assertion that a wall should be built between Mexico and the US and Mexico be made to pay for it.
And just went Trump thought the world had forgotten the issue yesterday sitting Mexican el presidente Enrique Pena Nieto echoed Fox’s comment staying that Mexico has no intention to pay for Trump’s Wall. But Pena Nieto went even further than Fox.
Pena Nieto compared Trump’s rhetoric to that of former WW2 dictators and FASCISTS Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler! He also said electing Trump to the US presidency would hurt US-Mexico relations. Several other nations including allies have recently expressed concerns over Trump possibly being elected and have warned that his election will hurt US relations with those nations also.
The Mexican president said that Trump seems to have the idea that he can use simple solutions to solve complex problems and noted such approaches have led to “very fateful scenes in the history of humanity.” He continued saying, “That’s the way Mussolini arrived and the way Hitler arrived.” I might note that both of these WW2 dictators used the same approach and it all sounded good on the surface but ended up in a devastating world war in which millions lost their lives. Trump says he’s a “unifier” but to me he appears to be a divider. Hitler and Mussolini considered themselves unifiers as well but they most certainly were not.
President Pena Nieto said during the interview that there is NO WAY in which Mexico would pay for Trump’s Wall. He added that he would hope that cooler heads would prevail. It must be noted that walls are not only built to keep people out BUT WALLS ARE ALSO BUILT TO KEEP PEOPLE IN! Wake up America!!!
Trump has gotten further than most thought he would in his campaign. However, IMO he’s playing on people’s frustrations and he’s creating bigger divisions rather than attempting to unify the American people. He is a very divisive figure. Does this nation really need anymore division??? A REAL LEADER would be trying to unify people not divide them. That’s what real and GREAT leaders do.
Further, Trump is trying to paint a picture that he is not a Corporatist but, in fact, he is IMO. He’s playing a con-game and thus far it’s gotten him a lot of support. IF elected to the presidency I strongly suspect America will quickly see Trump’s true colors and those true colors are the colors of Corporatism NOT Main Street America!
