Mexico's La Jornada published an editorial calling Trump a "dangerous clown" (Rolling Stone)
Mexican officials have began to sing a different song about presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. As there is now the possibility that he could win in November, members of the Mexican government have taken a softer tone towards the controversial Trump.
...But Mexican media has taken the opposite stance. La Jornada, a paper that noted intellectual Noam Chomsky once said was "maybe the only real independent newspaper in the hemisphere," has hardened their line on Trump.
They published an editorial on May 4 that refers to Trump as a "dangerous clown." La Jornada says that the success of both Trump and Democratic contender Bernie Sanders reveal the discontent felt by the U.S. populace, especially regarding economic neo-liberalism.
The paper highlights that Trump has the highest unfavorability ratings of the three remaining candidates, and that Sanders or Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton could easily defeat him.
Many say "it would be very difficult for Trump to occupy the White House in November," the paper comments. "But they said the same thing when his campaign kicked off 11 months ago, against 16 Republican contestants."
Now, "the clown doesn't make any smile, and he's more dangerous than ever."
