If you were wondering how former Mexican President Vicente Fox felt about Donald Trump’s Cinco de Mayo taco bowl with an “I love Hispanics!” caption, there’s an answer coming. It seems that Fox wasn’t impressed at all, for he’s reignited his rivalry with the real estate mogul. This is actually good news for those who wondered how Trump could possibly cope without an ongoing feud with someone. Fox is here to bring that political friction in spades.
Over the past several months, Mexican’s current president, Enrique Nieto, has kept things civil by merely criticizing rhetoric and acknowledging jeopardized relations between the U.S. and Mexico as a result of Trump’s rise. Yet Fox won’t hold back, which was why folks were surprised when Fox apologized to Trump (and invited him to Mexico) right before the taco bowl shenanigans began. This seemed like a generous gesture by Fox, but also a message that Trump’s presumptive-nominee status was being taken seriously.
These two have quite a history, with Fox taking offense at Trump’s ridiculous proposed wall. Of course, Fox also offended Trump by dropping an F-bomb while shouting, “I’m not going to pay for that f*cking wall!” After Trump called out the naughty word, Fox gleefully repeated himself as a Fox Business anchor’s jaw hit the floor. Then came the bizarre apology, which was swiftly destroyed by the taco bowl debacle.
