Former Mexican President Vicente Fox has spent the last several months attacking Donald Trump for his anti-Mexican comments and policies that attack Fox’s country. Wednesday, however, Fox took his attacks further by comparing the U.S. president to Hitler while he was speaking to the Nazi Party.
Fox explained that at no time in recent history has the relationship between the United States and the country to its south been so sour. He suggested that it was perhaps 50 years ago that the Mexico had differing opinions with the United Nations but over 100 years since the U.S. and Mexico had an unstable relationship.
“When I saw today’s gathering of the Republican Party retreat, Trump being there reminded me of Hitler addressing the Nazi Party,” Fox told CNN International. “I think it’s important to remind Congressmen with the Republican Party that fall on their responsibilities —”
It was then that the CNN International host stopped former President Fox to clarify if he actually was comparing Trump to Hitler.
“Not in that sense,” Fox clarified. “I am comparing him in the sense of the way he’s a populist, of everything that he said is pure populism, making America first. Number two, that he says jobs for everybody, what he says, business for everybody. I mean, his declarations, his creeds and his executive orders. Yes, I want to remind a Congressman is obliged with this free conscious to make decisions he doesn’t have to accept, but this guy is important to them.”
Fox also reiterated that Mexico will not be paying for any wall. Ever.

Trump losing ground among retirees in must-win Florida
Jim Farr is a staunch 77-year-old Republican in the sunny southern state of Florida, which lures retirees from all over America -- a powerful political bloc.
As the country's presidential election draws nearer, Farr dislikes the idea of voting for a Democrat. But the idea of giving President Donald Trump another term irks him even more.
Farr, who lives in Kissimmee in the central part of the state, is a devout Christian who considers abortion akin to "murdering babies" and believes in what he calls compassionate capitalism. He says it is not the Republican party that has lost a supporter -- the president has.
There’s something much more exciting happening behind the scenes of the Biden-Harris ticket
Joe Biden’s pick of Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate for the 2020 Democratic presidential ticket has generated strong responses. While many Democrats are elated at the idea of seeing a brown-skinned woman of Indian and Jamaican heritage in such a position, progressives are debating one another about Harris’ mixed record on bread-and-butter issues such as criminal justice reform, foreign policy, and health care. In many ways, Harris is not unlike Barack Obama: charismatic, intellectually brilliant, telegenic, and with just the kind of racially diverse background that symbolizes an America that most liberal-minded people want to live in. But far more hopeful than Harris’ achievement is the new crop of staunchly progressive young people of color that is chipping away at the Democratic Party establishment through electoral politics.
Scranton cheers hometown hero Joe Biden on to the White House
In a small sandwich shop in Scranton, Pennsylvania, customers crowd in with a life-size cardboard cut-out of Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential challenger who was born in the city and visited the shop as a child.
"He used to come up here when he was a little kid," says Tom Owens, the owner of Hank's Hoagies.
The place had a different name then -- it was reportedly called Simmy's, and it sold penny candy to a young Biden and his friends -- but decades later he has not forgotten his way there, as he proved with a visit in October last year.
