Trump and Former Mexican President Trade Jabs on Twitter

On the same day that Donald Trump was scheduled to arrive in Mexico to meet with the current Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, the GOP nominee traded barbs with former Mexican president Vicente Fox.

Fox has been critical of both Donald Trump and Enrique Peña Nieto for the visit, calling it a “desperate move on both sides.”

“I think the president, Peña, is taking an enormous political risk by hosting Trump. If he’s considered as going soft on Trump, it will hurt him greatly. He will even be considered like a traitor,” Fox said in an interview with CNN on Wednesday.

“He is not welcome to Mexico. By 130 million people, we don’t like him. We don’t want him. We reject his message,” the former Mexican president said of Trump’s visit.
