Vicente Fox: ‘I really apologize for Trump’s Mexico visit-Trump Using Mexico to push sinking polls'

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto “is taking an enormous political risk” by hosting Donald Trump in Mexico City on Wednesday, former President Vicente Fox said, decrying the Republican nominee’s visit as “opportunistic” and a “political stunt” while apologizing on behalf of the country for the president’s invitation.

“Trump is using Mexico, is using President Peña to push his sinking poll numbers,” Fox said in an interview with CNN’s “New Day” hours ahead of the scheduled meeting in the Mexican capital.

If Peña Nieto is seen as “going soft” on the businessman, Fox warned, “it will hurt him greatly.”

“He will even be considered like a traitor because we don’t accept to be offended,” he added, remarking, “I think this is a big mistake on the part of President Peña.”

Fox rejected the notion that the trip could improve the standing of either Trump or the sitting Mexican president among Mexicans.
