Government to Counter Negative Tone of US Presidential Race with Diplomatic Push

Donald Trump hasn’t said the nicest things about Mexicans, so AJ+ took him south of the border to see what they think about him. (AJ+)

The Mexican government has come up with a plan to confront criticism of the country during the U.S. presidential campaigns, but it doesn't include getting into verbal duels with the candidates.

The government instead will approach the campaigns of the Republican and Democratic nominees once they are chosen and share information about how the U.S. relationship with Mexico is an opportunity and not a threat, Francisco Guzman, an official in President Enrique Pena Nieto's office, said Tuesday.

Outlining the plan to journalists, he said Mexican consulates in the U.S. have been instructed to start meeting with organizations and public opinion leaders to discuss the contributions Mexicans make to the United States.



Republican front-runner Donald Trump, in particular, has drawn attention in Mexico by talking about Mexican migrants being rapists and bringing drugs to the United States, and he has repeatedly promised to build a wall along the entire U.S.-Mexico border.

Two former Mexican presidents struck back at Trump in the past week. Vicente Fox called him crazy and a false prophet, while Felipe Calderon compared Trump to Hitler in the way he plays on people's anxieties.

Guzman said Mexico's current administration will not get into confronting individuals.
