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.

Will Trump peacefully vacate the Oval Office if he loses the presidential election in 2020? A lesson from 1800
As primary season heats up in the United States, the Democrats are anxiously debating the best path to unseat Donald Trump in 2020. But the question of how to beat Trump is perhaps less urgent than the issue of whether he will accept defeat.
Trump has already questioned his loss of the 2016 popular vote with baseless accusations of voter fraud. He has also repeatedly toyed with the idea of extending his presidency beyond the eight-year limit enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, even trumpeting Jerry Falwell Jr.’s assertion that his first term be extended by two years to compensate for the Russia investigation. Perhaps most ominously, Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen warned while testifying before the House Oversight Committee in February 2019:
Something is killing galaxies — and science is on the case
In the most extreme regions of the universe, galaxies are being killed. Their star formation is being shut down and astronomers want to know why.
The first ever Canadian-led large project on one of the world’s leading telescopes is hoping to do just that. The new program, called the Virgo Environment Traced in Carbon Monoxide survey (VERTICO), is investigating, in brilliant detail, how galaxies are killed by their environment.
As VERTICO’s principal investigator, I lead a team of 30 experts that are using the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) to map the molecular hydrogen gas, the fuel from which new stars are made, at high resolution across 51 galaxies in our nearest galaxy cluster, called the Virgo Cluster.
Trudeau in blackface: A symptom of Canada’s widespread anti-Black racism
The news that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau performed in blackface when he was a student and a teacher has once again made blackface the topic of the day — this time in the middle of a Canadian election campaign.
The revelation that, as a 29-year-old teacher, Trudeau appeared in blackface at an “Arabian Nights” fundraiser at his school has made news around the world. Other images subsequently surfaced that showed a young Trudeau performing in blackface at high school talent shows.
