The Mexican government has aligned itself with the Democrats and is working hard to defeat Donald Trump. They are unhappy that Trump wants to stop illegal immigration from Mexico into the United States. The irony is that in opposing Trump the Mexican government makes clear that they want to get their least educated, least employable citizens out of Mexico and into the United States. “We don’t want them, you take them,” would be a fair way to sum up Mexico’s attitude towards its own citizens.
And in order to accomplish their purposes the Mexican government is willing to break longstanding diplomatic tradition and take sides in a foreign country’s elections. Mexican President Pena Nieto has compared Donald Trump’s popularity to the rise of Hitler and Mussolini in the years leading up to World War II. The Guardian reports it this way:
“There have been episodes in human history, unfortunately, where these expressions of strident rhetoric have led to very ominous situations,” Peña Nieto told the Mexican newspaper Excélsior in an interview published on Monday. “That’s how Mussolini got in, that’s how Hitler got in: they took advantage of a situation, a problem perhaps, which humanity was going through at the time, after an economic crisis.”
Peña Nieto’s pronouncements are the most forceful so far against Trump, whose rise to the top of the Republican primary races has spooked Mexicans of all social strata.
And just this past week, former Mexican President Vicente Fox, the grandson of German immigrants to Ohio names Fuchs (later changed to Fox), met with Nancy Pelosi and gave the single finger salute to Donald Trump.
There are several public signs of a shift in Mexico’s posture toward Trump, a man many in the Latin American country call “El Payaso” — “The Clown.”
The Mexican embassy in Washington on Thursday issued a sharp statement announcing that Carlos Sada Solana had assumed his role as the country’s new ambassador to the United States and that his “clear and precise” mandate is to defend the interests of Mexico and Mexicans.
In what appeared to be a swipe at the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, the statement went on to say that the new envoy “recognized the need to reposition the image of Mexico in the United States in its just and rightful place.”
The new undersecretary (Carreno) landed in his current position just weeks ago as part of a major Mexican leadership shakeup in apparent response to the Trump phenomenon. Around half of the consuls general at Mexico’s 50 U.S. consulates were reshuffled or replaced. The government also named Sada as the new Mexican ambassador.
Carreño, who has an extensive communications background, pointed out that educational campaigns about U.S.-Mexico relations aren’t new. In the 1990s, when U.S., Canadian and Mexican leaders were promoting the North American Free Trade Agreement (a pact Trump despises), similar efforts helped sell the deal, he said.
Mexican Government Plotting Against Trump With Democrats
After meeting with Pelosi, Vicente Fox had this to say:
“What I’ve been saying here, I told her. Count with us, with all Mexicans, to support the Democratic Party because you’ve done much better with us than the Republican Party,” he said.
This has barely been reported. Agents of a foreign government are openly conspiring with Democrats to undermine the integrity of the American presidential election. The silence speaks volumes about the integrity and loyalties of the NeverTrumpers who say nothing. Our elections must remain inviolable, free from foreign influence regardless of one’s feelings about the candidates.
