JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Former Mexican President Vincente Fox slammed Donald Trump again on Friday, telling CNN that the Republican presidential candidate reminds him of Adolf Hitler.

Fox told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that Trump would weaken the United States, not strengthen it.

“He’s going to take that nation back to the old days of conflict, war, and everything,” he said, adding that Trump “reminds me of Hitler.”

Fox made headlines this week admonishing Trump for insisting that Mexico will pay for a wall along the southern border of the United States. Fox told media outlets twice, that Mexico is “not going to pay for that fucking wall.”

Trump responded by saying that he will now build a higher wall and called on Fox to apologize for cursing.

Fox told CNN on Friday that he will make “no apologies,” but would be willing to speak to Trump.

“He has offended Mexico, Mexicans, immigrants. He has offended the Pope. He has offended the Chinese. He’s offended everybody,” he told CNN.
