Former Mexican President Vicente Fox is comparing Donald Trump to Fidel Castro, saying the president-elect is “very similar” to totalitarian leaders.

“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.”
