Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has compared the rhetoric of U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to that of German Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
In an interview with Mexican daily Excelsior, he called Trump’s rhetoric “strident”.
He added that “that’s how [Italian fascist leader] Mussolini got in, that’s how Hitler got in”.
The Mexican leader also said that Trump had hurt US-Mexico relations.
Donald Trump has said that if he is elected he will build a wall along the US-Mexico border to keep migrants from crossing into the US illegally.The Republican candidate has also insisted that Mexico would pay for the border wall, which President Pena Nieto dismissed out of hand.
He said there was “no scenario” under which Mexico would ever pay for such a wall.
