    Former Mexican President Vicente Fox on Tuesday slammed Donald Trump's performance in the first presidential debate and warned that the GOP nominee's behavior should alarm world leaders. "We think he’s a danger. He’s a threat to the world," Fox, who watched the debate on Mexican television, told The Washington Post. "When he speaks about geo-economic situation and the geo-political situation and terrorism, he’s absolutely ignorant, and he’s only provoking us democratic leaders from around the world to reject everything he’s proposing. He is an imperialistic gringo." In contrast, Fox said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton looked "very presidential." "My impression...

    Donald Trump certainly knows how to manipulate the media and ruffle some feathers in order to get a reaction, this we know. Trump's plan to build a wall on the Mexican border doesn't need to be rehashed here, but one person who has let Trump's rhetoric on the subject get under his skin is former Mexican president Vicente Fox. Fox has been on an emotional roller coaster ever since Trump started in with his criticisms of Mexico. Initially, Fox took to the airwaves to let everyone know that the wall Trump has said Mexico will pay for, ya, he's not...

    SANTA MONICA, California — Former Mexican president Vicente Fox suggested Wednesday that drug trafficking and violence at the border aren’t caused by Mexico, but by drug consumption in the United States. We don’t have a consumption problem. Then, the question, why the war? Why the killings? It’s because we are in between those that consume the drugs here in the north in United States and those who produce the drugs south, Columbia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia. “And here is Mexico in this war, why? We have accepted to collaborate with United States in trying to cut the drug trafficking, trying to...

    Why a conservative economist says Trump could make America ‘the North Korea of economics’ By Jim Tankersley May 6 In his run for the White House, Donald Trump has threatened to slap tariffs on imports from China, in almost-certain violation of international rules. He has threatened to confiscate money that immigrants from Mexico wire home to their families, in order to force the Mexican government to pay for a border wall. This week, he suggested that, in an economic crisis, the government might repay only some of the money it owes to certain holders of its debt. Those threats reflect...

In an interview with The Hill Monday, Secretary of the Economy Ildefonso Guajardo said "it's not very convenient for foreign officials" to comment on U.S. elections. He said they will instead focus on the massive economic potential of the U.S.-Mexico partnership. "The mere fact that Mexico has become an item in the debate should be an opportunity to reinforce the U.S-Mexico relationship. In a way, underlying that reality is the fact that whatever happens in Mexico has an impact in the U.S....

    According to former Mexican Presidente and current POS Vicente Fox, the problem with immigration and jobs in America has nothing to do with our manufacturing being relocated abroad or with foreigners illegally here in our country taking what few jobs are available. There is no relevance to the fact that DOJ isn't enforcing the laws already on the books which prescribe multiple thousand dollar fines per each violation for hiring illegals. According to Fox, it's the victims' fault. Americans demand a fair wage rather than working for the slave wages created by open borders and unenforced immigration laws. Illegal Mexicans,...

Because what's not written in this story is the Mexican political leadership arguing about the viability of the Southern Security Wall being built. They have conceded the most important aspect. The argument has moved beyond 'will the wall be built', and now is focusing on 'who is going to pay for it'. The media will skip noticing that little nuance.

    WASHINGTON – Mexico's former President Vicente Fox is making no secret of his desire to promote a "North American Union" to compete economically with Europe and the Far East. In a promotional tour for his new book, "Revolution of Hope," Fox told NPR's "Talk of the Nation" audience: "That's part of my Americas dream, that we can build our future together. We are partners with United States and Canada through NAFTA. There are other blocs in Latin America, but at the very end a continental trade agreement and union on the long term would be a way to develop ourselves...

    In an interview last night on CNN's "Larry King Live," the former president of Mexico, Vicente Fox, confirmed the existence of a government plan to create the amero as a new regional currency to replace the U.S. dollar, the Canadian dollar and the Mexican Peso. It possibly was the first time a leader of Mexico, Canada or the U.S. openly confirmed a plan to create a regional currency. Fox explained the current regional trade agreement is intended to evolve into other previously hidden aspects of integration.

    MEXICO CITY — Former Mexican President Vicente Fox, whose election seven years ago ended decades of corrupt, one-party rule, is learning that this democracy thing has a downside. Opposition legislators called Thursday for a congressional investigation into the sources of Fox's apparent wealth. The legislators joined a growing media and political uproar about the finances of Fox's and Marta Sahagun, the former spokeswoman who became his second wife. Compared with the lucre of other past presidents, Fox's purse may seem downright plebeian. But in today's Mexico, where political opponents publicly pummel and the press feels free to allege with abandon,...

    The two leaders shared a border for six years, but former Mexico President Vicente Fox gives a tough assessment on President Bush in a new book out next month, according to U.S. News and World Report. In "Revolution of Hope," set to hit book stores October 4, Fox calls Bush "the cockiest guy I have ever met in my life," and is sharply critical of the president's Iraq policy and his immigration stance, according to the magazine. Though he describes warm relations with Bush, Fox in the book also calls the president's Spanish skills "grade-school" level and says, "I can't...

    OTTAWA — It's a threat that has left-wing Canadian nationalists and right-wing U.S. congressmen in rare and dismayed agreement: a freeway, four football fields wide, stretching from Mexico to northern Manitoba. Groups on both sides of the political spectrum say the corridor - dubbed the NAFTA superhighway - is a primary goal of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) of North America established two years ago by the leaders of the United States, Canada and Mexico. At separate press conferences in Ottawa yesterday, the road was held out as an example of the potentially repugnant effects of the trilateral partnership....

    NAFTA Superhighway Has Giuliani As Key Player Submitted by admin on Tue, 2007-06-26 20:28.A NAFTA superhighway extends North through Texas into Oklahoma and Colorado, and it's a four lane huge superhighway.On March 23, 2005, U.S. President George W. Bush, former Canadian Prime Minister, Paul Martin and former Mexican President, Vicente Fox, authorized the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP), now under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Commerce. Most Americans have little to no knowledge of this seemingly innocuous sounding unofficial treaty and therefore believe there is little reason to be alarmed.However, what could be misinterpreted as legislation which has...

As Fox puts the finishing touches on his memoirs and oversees construction of Mexico's first presidential library, he is shaping a new role for himself in a country that expects its former presidents to vanish from public life. He talks about riding his “horse of democracy” through South America to promote freedom. He daydreams about loading his family in an RV this summer and vacationing in California. He travels to Canada with...
