Vincente Fox Says Trump Not Welcome in Mexico: This Is a 'Political Stunt' (CNN/Raw Story)

Update: Donald Trump Greeted by Protests as He Arrives in Mexico City for Last Minute Meeting with Mexican President (The Telegraph)

Donald Trump’s surprise decision to visit Mexico, the country he wants to seal off from the US with a security wall, has not been warmly received south of the border.

Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, who has previously compared the Republican presidential nominee to Hitler and Mussolini, tried to strike a more emollient tone, tweeting: “I believe in dialogue to promote the interests of Mexico in the world and to protect Mexicans wherever they are.”

Many of his countrymen, however, were rather blunter as they anticipated the arrival of a man who has accused Mexico of “bringing their worst people” to America, including criminals and “rapists”.

“@realDonaldTrump you are not welcome in Mexico,” tweeted Miguel Barbosa, of the opposition party of the Democratic Revolution. “Get out! You’re coming to get your picture taken with the very people you’ve offended.”

Barbosa also attacked Peña Nieto, saying his invitation to Trump was not worthy of the Mexican government.

The former president Vicente Fox, who has frequently criticised Trump for his conduct towards Mexicans, was equally direct. “There’s no turning back, Trump, your insults to Mexicans, Muslims and others have dropped you into the hole where you find yourself today. Goodbye, Trump!”
