Former Mexican Prez Vicente Fox drops F-bomb on The Donald

By Thom Fain/Briefing

In an early effort to woo working-class whites who’ve seen their fortunes plummet over the past eight years, GOP front-runner Donald Trump pledged something early and often on in his 2016 bid for the White House: “We are going to build a big, beautiful wall” between the U.S. and Mexico.

And the Mexicans are going to pay for it? Not so, says former President Vicente Fox in an interview Fusion released portions of on Thursday.

“Please, you Hispanics, Latinos in the U.S., open your eyes. It’s not to defend our race. Not to defend our creed. It’s to defend this very same nation that is hosting you. This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy,” Fox said of Trump.

Immigration policy has been a touchy subject over the past several elections, but it’s reached a fever point in an era of Big Government fears and a white majority melting into a new multicultural America that’s seen the rise out of poverty for families of both African and Mexican origin.

The white middle-class has, nonetheless, been moved away from the center of policymaking it’s been accustomed to being positioned in since the mid-20th century. With promises like “Yes We Can” feeling empty, and “A Future We Can Believe In” sounding too good to be true, the rise of Trump and his (supposed) plans to insulate America are looking more and more like a grand bargain.

The conservative movement (or non-movement), meanwhile, is looking at all of its options — Rubio and Cruz — to stop the momentum of Trump as the election process moves swiftly toward Super Tuesday states and then Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana and Maine on March 5.
