Former Mexican President Vicente Fox Lets Loose On ‘Hated Gringo’ And ‘Ugly American’ Donald Trump:

I am not saying that Trump is the best thing since sliced bread was thought of. What I am saying; fools that live on the bottom of a hill in glass houses should not throw stones or roll boulder down the hill.


Controversial comments made by The Fox

  • In March 2002, two days prior to the International Conference on Financing for Development held in Monterrey, Nuevo León. Fox called Cuban President Fidel Castro and instructed him to limit his comments about the United States, and that he should leave Mexico after he delivers his speech and eats a meal.[citation needed] This led Castro years later to call Fox “despicable and treacherous”.[citation needed]

  • In May 2005, a controversy arose over comments Fox made during a meeting with Texas businesspeople in which he said, “There is no doubt that Mexicans, filled with dignity, willingness and ability to work, are doing jobs that not even blacks want to do there in the United States”. This angered many African-Americans in the United States, prompting many black leaders to demand an apology from Fox. The Reverend Al Sharpton requested a formal apology from Fox to the African-American community and called for an economic boycott of Mexican products until an apology was received; he and many African-Americans felt that Fox’s comments were insensitive and racist. The Reverend Jesse Jackson, during a news conference concerning Fox’s statement about African-Americans, said that he felt that the comments were, “unwitting, unnecessary and inappropriate” and added that “[Fox’s] statement had the impact of being inciting and divisive”.[22]
  • Fox was also known to have mispronounced the name of Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges as “José Luis Borgués” in theRoyal Congress of the Spanish Language. This error sparked accusations of an “uncultured” President.[23]
  • On 30 May 2005, President Fox told reporters that the majority of the female homicides in Ciudad Juárez had been resolved and the perpetrators placed behind bars. He went on to criticize the media for “rehashing” the same 300 or 400 murders, and said matters needed to be seen in their “proper dimension”.
  • In 2006, after Bolivian President Evo Morales refused to sell natural gas, Fox said, “Well, they’ll either have to consume it all themselves or they’re going to have to eat it.”[24]
  • In yet another controversial move he decided to cancel the parade commemorating the 96th anniversary of theMexican Revolution to take place 20 November, arguing that it is an obsolete celebration in which nobody wants to participate any more. Some analysts considered that this was a response to Andrés Manuel López Obrador‘s assumption of an alternative presidency to take place the same day. Some considered it a smart decision, while others viewed it as a sign of political weakness.[25]
  • On 8 March 2006, in the wake of the murder of Canadian couple Domenico and Nancy Ianiero at a resort inCancun, Fox said that there was evidence that pointed to Canadian suspects from Thunder Bay, in order to assert that Cancun remained a safe vacation resort. Fox’s comments were criticized by the Ianieros’ lawyerEdward Greenspan for compromising the investigation, which Mexican authorities were considered to have largely mishandled. Quintana Roo attorney general Bello Melchor Rodriguez later stated that the Canadians were never considered as suspects.[26][27]
  • In November 2006, the TV network Telemundo released a video that had been recorded previous to an interview with President Fox in which he stated: “Ya hoy hablo libre, ya digo cualquier tontería, ya no importa, ya total, yo ya me voy” which means “Now, I speak freely. Now, I say whatever nonsense. It doesn’t matter anymore. Anyway, I’m already leaving.” Then, during the interview he talked about the violent situation in Oaxaca. The President’s office complained about the release of this images and said he was not aware of the camera and microphones being turned on. News agency EFE accused Telemundo of acting unethically, because the video was EFE’s intellectual property.[28]
  • In a lecture in the United States, in which he was a keynote speaker, he identified Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa as a Colombian Nobel laureate (Spanish by naturalization) and, at the time, was not a Nobel Laureate.[23] Later, in October 2010, Fox congratulated Vargas Llosa on Twitter for winning the Nobel Prize in Literature, but he incorrectly attributed a Nobel Prize to Jorge Luis Borges.

As we can see Vinnie has a propensity of running his mouth like Trump does. He has no room to criticize Donny. It would be my guess that he has a very healthy relationship the PPPP that are trying to run the big gun out of town.

Back off   Vinnie and go back to taking care of business south of the boarder. You have enough to deal with down there.

In all fairness; Fox did a lot for Mexico when he was the president.
