[Ed. – And his opinion is important why?]
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox is comparing Donald Trump to Fidel Castro, saying the president-elect is “very similar” to totalitarian leaders.
“Cuba is going to be a great Latin American nation as soon as they get rid of the Castros,” Fox told host Dagen McDowell on Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria” Tuesday. “So nobody needs dictators.
“By the way, that kind of dictatorship, that kind of totalitarian leaders, is very similar to Trump. They lie, they cheat, they are false prophets, they promise many things, but they are not going to be able to comply.”
McDowell quickly rebuked Fox for linking Trump to Castro, a Communist figurehead and longtime antagonist of the U.S. who died last weekend.
“Comparing Donald Trump to Fidel Castro is beyond the pale,” she said. “Fidel Castro was a murdering thug who tortured people, who imprisoned people. Quite frankly, Mr. President, I ask you to take that back, comparing Fidel Castro to Donald Trump.”
