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.

Fox News host appears confused how phone calls work while doubting impeachment witnesses
On Tuesday's edition of "Fox & Friends," co-host Brian Kilmeade questioned the impeachment testimony of State Department aide David Holmes — and in the process, revealed his confusion about how telephone calls work.
"Now the big thing is, something that's not addressed, nobody else has seen, and no one's really questioned, is that when David Holmes came out and said, I was hanging out in a restaurant, having a bottle of wine, and I listened over, and there's the E.U. ambassador talking to what I think's the president," said Kilmeade. "Amazingly, he heard both sides of the phone call, and at which time Sondland said to the president that Zelensky 'loves your [ass]' ... Now we have not seen Sondland say that's true or not true, and I also find it hard to believe that people just accept that you can hear both sides of a phone call 3,000 or 5,000 miles away. I've never heard both sides of a phone call when you have it to your ear!"
Elise Stefanik shredded by local columnist for selling out to Trump: ‘She’s not one of us’
Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has been dubbed a "rising star" by President Donald Trump for her sycophantic defenses of him during the House impeachment inquiry.
But Ken Tingley, a newspaper columnist at the Glens Falls Post Star in upstate New York, believes that her strident defenses of the president will cost her dearly in her district.
In his latest column, Tingley offers a scathing assessment of Stefanik's character by pointing out that she swooped into the district despite not living there after a career that suggested she'd rather be running the Republican National Committee than representing New York's 21st district.
FBI officials are scared to look into Ukraine — because of what Trump did to the ones who investigated Russia: report
According to Yahoo News, the FBI is interested in interviewing the CIA whistleblower whose complaint about President Donald Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine triggered the impeachment inquiry — but at least some FBI agents are frightened of getting involved because of how the president declared partisan political war on the agents who investigated his campaign's contacts with Russia.
One former senior FBI official said that while many agents were eager to pursue this evidence, others "didn’t want to touch [the whistleblower complaint] with a 10-foot pole because of the Russia investigation."
