Now We Have a Foreign Head of State Comparing Trump to Hitler and Mussolini
Mexico's president Enrique PeÃ±a Nieto has become increasingly vocal in addressing the looming possibility of a Trump presidency. On Monday, PeÃ±a Nieto announced that Trump's offensive language about Mexicans has unequivocally damaged relations between the two countries. The president confirmed that Mexico would not pay for Trump's proposed border wall as early as August 2015, two months after Trump announced his candidacy, despite the frequency with which Trump reiterates this false statement.
Trump's proposed border wall has to be at least 20 feet high and stretch five feet below ground, according to an engineer writing for the National Memo. Trump told MSNBC in early February he was envisioning something between 35 to 40 feet tall.

While Trump has been compared to Hitler since proposing "special badges" for Muslims, PeÃ±a Nieto's comments are the most forceful any political leader has yet spoken against Trump.
