At one point of agreement submitted by the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), it was questioned that the federal government so far has shown disregard for the statements made by Trump against the Mexican people and the Mexican government.
Deputy Victor Hugo Romo warned about the risk of such messages and said that Trump’s personality was “primary, self-centered and primitive”.
Deputies from other parties, such as José Manuel Delgadillo PAN, acknowledged that he usually does not support initiatives that are outside the sphere of local issues, but warned the risk posed by Trump, who could be the next president of the United States if he wins the nomination of the Republican party for the presidency of the United States.
“I have always been critical to touch issues that are outside the jurisdiction of the Legislature, that are outside the jurisdiction of Mexico City, but on this issue we can not remain silent and let it happen.”
The voice of rejection by the Legislative Assembly joins others that have issued similar statements, like Felipe Calderon and Vicente Fox, who have warned of the risk not only for Mexico but for the world if Donald Trump is elected president.
