Breitbart: SANTA MONICA, California — During an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, former Mexican President Vicente Fox apologized Wednesday for the vulgar language he has used regarding GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s proposal to build a wall along the southern border and invited the likely Republican nominee to Mexico to see the border from the other side.
Earlier this year, Fox said that he would not pay for Trump’s “xxxxxxxx wall,” and called Trump ““Ignorant … crazy … egocentric … nasty … [a] false prophet.” Trump then called on Fox to apologize.
On Wednesday he did.
Opinion: I am trying to like Donald Trump. He describes himself as “really, very conservative,” and the “most conservative person in the world.” But whenever he gets specific on policy, he makes a sharp left turn, e.g., his opinion that the government should provide universal health care, non-gender specific bathrooms or that President Bush lied about Iraq.
I admit that the border wall got my attention, especially the part about Mexico paying for it; and now watching Vincente Fox apologize is a bonus.
And perhaps Trump’s best idea of all was shutting down importing unvetted Muslim refugees until the government could figure out how to avoid importing ISIS operatives.
There are, however, serious problems: I wanted to believe that slapping taxes on Chinese and Mexican goods is the right thing to do, but the research that I did on a possible trade war in yesterday’s post says the opposite.
I wanted to believe that he would deport illegal aliens and only allow law-abiding aliens to come back would work, but deporting what is now undoubtedly 30 million people is not only unlikely, it may cause more problems than it solves.
Then, there is the secret New York Times interview that Mr. Trump refuses to release, where rumor has it, he has no intentions of deporting anyone.
And I am trying to find something I like in his constantly changing policy on what he calls “the deal” between Israel and the Jordanian people (whom the world calls Palestinians) but his knowledge of the conflict is lacking.
Mostly, I am trying to find something, anything, beyond populous political slogans that will get me to vote for him, since the alternative is much worse:
Jesus spoke of a time of trouble just prior to His return that would grow in frequency and intensity, followed by tribulation “such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” Matthew 24:8, 21
So, how could the build up to that be anything but perilous, 2 Timothy 3:1?
