Former Mexican President Again Compares President Trump to Adolf Hitler

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox stood by his comparison of President Trump to Adolf Hitler, and the Republican Party to the Nazi Party, while appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe on Friday.

Fox initially made this claim during an interview on CNN International saying, “When I saw today’s gathering of the Republican Party retreat, Trump being there reminded me of Hitler addressing the Nazi Party.”

Fox found President Trump’s proposed 20% import tax on Mexican goods, and claims that Mexico would build the wall, to be most upsetting.

NBC’s Willie Geist pressed Fox on this comparison, saying there is a long way to go from disagreements on trade policy to comparing a president to Hitler.

“Hitler was used to embellish, used to get in love by his nice talking, by his promises by their grand dreams,” Fox told Geist.

After Fox’s interview had concluded MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said, “There’s a bit of a jump from a 20% border-adjusted tax to exterminating six million Jews.”
