Mexico City, February 27 (RHC)-- U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has slammed Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's rhetoric regarding immigration as "dangerous, damaging and incredibly ill-advised."
"The message that is coming out of the United States as a consequence of the presidential campaign, about American attitudes toward Mexicans and Mexico generally, the entire hemisphere and our place in the world, is disturbing," Biden said during a visit to Mexico City.
"But here's what I'm here to tell you: They do not, they do not, they do not represent the view of the vast majority of the American people."
Trump, a billionaire real estate mogul, has infuriated Mexico from the start of his candidacy by declaring that the country was sending "criminals" and "rapists" across the border and that he would force the neighboring government to pay for a giant wall to keep illegal migrants out.
He has promised, if elected president in 2016, to expel undocumented immigrants in the United States and build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Joining the chorus of outrage, in an interview with the U.S. television network Fusion on Thursday, former Mexican President Vicente Fox called Donald Trump "crazy" and used the F-word to lash out against Trump's demand for Mexico to pay for a border wall. Fox said: "I am not going to pay for that f***ing wall. He should pay for it. He's got the money."
