Donald Trump reminds the former Mexican President Vicente Fox of Hitler, and Fox wasn’t the only one to make the comparison.
According to CNN, Vicente Fox is punching back after Trump assured the Mexican people that the wall he insists on building would be “ten feet taller.” This statement came during the latest GOP debate when Trump was reminded of Fox’s earlier remarks saying that he was “not going to pay for that f***ing wall.”
Donald Trump has insisted Mexico will pay billions of dollars for the wall he intends to build between Mexico and the United States to keep illegal immigrants out.
The former president of Mexico said he would not apologize for his remarks laced with profanity, and instead said that Donald Trump reminded him of one of the world’s most infamous dictators, Adolf Hitler.
“Today, he’s going to take that nation (U.S.) back to the old days of conflict, war and everything. I mean, he reminds me of Hitler. That’s the way he started speaking,” Fox said.
Although Hitler was known for great leadership skills and being vivacious, he was a megalomaniac who ordered the extermination of millions of Jews and others. His superior oratory skills drew people into his twisted ideals, and his aggressive foreign policies paved the way for the birth of World War II.
The comparison of Donald Trump to the dictator is not completely shocking, as it has been done before.
Anne Frank’s stepsister, Eva Schloss, compared Trump to the evil man by saying he was “acting like another Hitler” in her essay to mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day posted in Newsweek.
“If Donald Trump becomes the next president of the U.S. it would be a complete disaster. I think he is acting like another Hitler by inciting racism. During his U.S. presidential campaign he has suggested the ‘total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,’ as well as pledging to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico to keep illegal immigrants out.”
If Donald Trump is acting like an egotistical and maniacal dictator-to-be, his supporters aren’t worried. Donald Trump is leading the Republican party, and with an extra boost from New Jersey governor Chris Christie’s recent endorsement, other Republicans are scrambling for a way to stop Trump before he becomes the next official Republican presidential nominee.
The time to attack Trump was months ago, but the other candidates are seemingly only coming around to do so now. Donald Trump stands ready to fight against Hillary Clinton, but not all Republicans are so sure he has the strength to beat the Democratic party in a presidential election. The Republican party is obviously divided, and the diversion is certain to deepen if Trump continues to be the front-runner.
According to The New York Times, while supporters of Trump believe he’s riding high, the Republican party’s biggest benefactors cannot commit to him. A recent presentation given by the billionaires Charles G. and David H. Koch, the most generous donors in the country to the conservatives, their political advisers slammed Donald Trump as inappropriate for the presidency. From his record to what he currently supports, Donald Trump clearly isn’t the choice for them.
Despite what others think, including the former Mexican President, Donald Trump continues to campaign his way which seems to be working for him to gain many loyal supporters.
