Former Mexican President Vicente Fox has issued a formal apology to GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. The apology came after Trump demanded an apology from Fox for issuing a derogatory, sear-filled, criticism of Trump’s plan to build a wall along the Mexican border.
Earlier this year Fox called Trump crazy, egocentric, nasty, ignorant and a “false prophet” during an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos. He went to state that Mexico:
“will not pay for his [expletive] wall!”
Fox’s original statement that sparked the controversy can be seen here:
“I apologize. Forgiveness is one of the greatest qualities that human beings have, is the quality of a compassionate leader. You have to be humble. You have to be compassionate. You have to love thy neighbor”

Fox went on to invite Trump to visit Mexico and see the border from “the other side” so that Trump can have a better understanding of Mexico and the relations between the two countries. He focused his invitation on the importance of trade ties between the two countries.
Do you think Fox’s apology was sincere or an attempt to build relations with the GOP frontrunner and possible future president of the United States? Share your thoughts in the comment section!
