Former Mexican Leader Vicente Fox Wants to Run for President - of the United States

Vicente Fox Is Running for President of the United States (Super Deluxe)

The United States just elected an outsider president, and now Vicente Fox is hoping it will elect a Mexican.

The former Mexican president announced his spoof candidacy in the 2020 U.S. presidential election last week, in a five-minute video statement shellacking President Donald Trump with profanity and mariachis belting out his "Vicente for Presidente" campaign song.

"Donald, every time I make fun of you, which I do a lot, people say, ‘Why can’t you be our president?"’ said Fox, who emerged last year from a sleepy post-presidency on his ranch in central Mexico to become an Internet sensation as one of Trump’s most consistent and brutal comedic critics.

"America, I feel your pain. We all do. And that is why today I am proud to announce my candidacy for president of the United States," said Fox, who pulled on a Trump-style campaign red cap that read: "Always ask before grabbing a pussy."

Fox, president of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, re-emerged into the public eye last year when he gave interviews to The Washington Post and another media outlet ripping Trump over his proposed border wall. He said Mexico would never pay for the wall, deploying very un-presidential and headline-grabbing F-bombs to punctuate his anger.

Since then, Fox has become a salty and often brutal alternative voice to Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who has about 20 percent approval ratings in the polls and is widely seen in Mexico as not nearly tough enough on Trump. No country has been singled out for criticism by Trump more than Mexico, and Mexicans have responded by bashing Trump-effigy piñatas.
