MEXICO CITY — Mexicans backed former President Vicente Fox in his verbal spat with Donald Trump on Friday, after Fox called the Republican front-runner “crazy” and a “false prophet” and Trump replied that he ought to be “ashamed of himself” for using a profanity.
In the streets of the capital, newspapers and social media, locals sided with the usually unpopular ex-leader over Trump, who is probably viewed even more negatively by Mexicans for campaign rhetoric denigrating immigrants as “rapists” who bring crime and drugs to the United States.
