Ex-President Vicente Fox Warns US Voters Against Trump as President

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox is urging US voters to look before they leap. The global consequences would be dramatic if Donald Trump won the presidency, he told DW's James Blears in Mexico City.

DW: Republican Party candidate for president Donald Trump has called Mexican immigrants rapists and said he would build a wall along the US's southern border, which Mexico would pay for. His plan to force the southern neighbor to foot the bill includes preventing Mexican workers in the US from sending their earnings back home. Bank of Mexico Governor Agustin Carstens has said Trump's idea for halting or freezing remittances is a serious violation of property rights for Mexican people.

Vicente Fox: It is really stealing money away from people. We're talking about the fruit of the efforts and work of every Mexican migrant in the United States. They make a great contribution to that nation, and it would be a criminal act to take that money away from them.

It's also stupid, because imagine if these procedures go ahead: We're going to have retaliation. And if you cannot transfer money through the United States to Mexico, maybe in that war which everybody loses, money from corporations operating in Mexico could not be transferred to the United States. So he's provoking hate, division, conflict in every word and every public policy that he's suggesting. Every word that he says would have a profound effect on what we've built in history as an economic free-market system, trade relations among nations and regulations on foreign investment.
