Mexican ex-president compares Trump to Hitler


MEXICO CITY: Mexican ex-president Felipe Calderon tore into US Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump on Saturday, comparing him to Adolf Hitler and blasting him as a racist. Calderon, a member of the conservative National Action Party (PAN), warned that Trump’s rise in the Republican Party presidential primaries was fueling anti-Americanism around the world. Fellow conservative Trump’s anti-migrant rhetoric is not aimed at all immigrants, but rather “he is talking about migrants that have a different color than him — and that is frankly racist,” said Calderon, speaking after an event in downtown Mexico City. Trump is exploiting the social fears “that in his time Hitler himself did,” Calderon told reporters. He warned that Trump “is turning the United States into a neighbor that we’re all going to end up rejecting and hating,” and that was not in the best interest of the United States.
