Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has compared the rhetoric of US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to that of German Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.
In an interview with Mexican daily Excelsior, he called Mr 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 Mr 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.
Mr Trump, who has made the fight against illegal immigration the main plank of his campaign, outraged Mexicans last June when he called undocumented Mexican migrants “criminals” and “rapists”.

that’s how the conservatives got in and their rhetoric towards the sick and disabled is the same as that of the German Nazi leader Adolf Hitler who claimed at the time he was doing them a favor paying for them to go on holiday and never to come back
hence he got away with the murders for many years
for the record Mexico is far superior to the USA in many ways and its leadership needs to understand that and improve the life of the Mexican people so they don’t feel the need to go to the USA for work
Looks like America will get its first female president right after its first black one.
Its Hobsons choice both are undesirables Clinton because nepotism shouldnt play a part in politics and legislation is long overdue to prevent this. Trump lacks diplomacy, has a skewed version of reality and will undoubtedly feed racism globally if elected as USA president. What a choice!!!
