Following Donald Trump‘s game-changing win Tuesday in Indiana, former Mexican President Vicente Fox has changed his tone considerably toward the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
Fox apologized Wednesday for previous comments he has made about Trump, to include using vulgar language, during an interview with Breitbart News.
“I apologize. Forgiveness is one of the greatest qualities that human beings have, is the quality of a compassionate leader,” he said. “You have to be humble. You have to be compassionate. You have to love thy neighbor.”
The former Mexican president said earlier this year that Trump “reminds me of Hitler,” calling the real estate tycoon an “egocentric” and a “false prophet,” among other things.
He also had a message about the Republican candidate’s suggestion that Mexico pay for a border will he intends to have built.
“I’m not going to pay for that f***ing wall,” Fox said.
But that was then and this is now.
“Love your nation. Love the world,” he told Breitbart News. “Yes, I’m humble enough as leadership be, [a] compassionate leader. If I offended you, I’m sorry. But what about the other way around?”
Given Trump’s penchant for not asking for forgiveness, Fox may want to get comfortable awaiting that apology.
Nevertheless, Fox invited Trump to come to Mexico to gain a different perspective.
“I don’t think he should follow the strategy of attacking others, offending others, to get to his purpose,” he said. “There are other ways and means of doing it. I invite him to come to Mexico and to see what Mexico is all about.”
