Mexico on a Trump Victory: 'We Haven't Even Considered That Seriously'

How Donald Trump Can Short Sell Mexico to Win Presidency (wochit News )

GOP presidential contender Donald Trump's remarks about immigration and Mexico have rattled some nerves there, but many Mexicans don't believe he'll win the White House, the Washington Post reports.

"We haven't even considered that seriously," a senior diplomat in Mexico’s Foreign Ministry tells the Post.

In a statement on Trump's recently released immigration plan, the Foreign Ministry said it continues "to stand by our position that these comments reflect prejudice, racism or plain ignorance," the Post reports.

"Anyone who understands the depth of the U.S.-Mexico relationship realizes that those proposals are not only prejudiced and absurd, but would be detrimental to the well-being of both societies," the statement said, the Post reports.

The Miami Herald reports the Trump immigration plan includes a provocative proposal to block the money sent home to families in Mexico.
