Ex-Mexican President challenges Trump to debate
Beijing, June 3: Former Mexican President Vicente Fox has announced that he wants to debate presumptive Republican presidential candidate Dold Trump one-on-one.
In an interview with New York-based WABC Radio on Thursday, Fox said he "would love to" debate the presumptive Republican nominee, initially stipulating that it should only happen in Mexico, Politico reported. "One condition ... that it's done in Mexico ... because I need him to see what Mexico is all about, to see what we Mexicans are all about. He will change his attitude toward Mexico," Fox said.
But shortly after, the former Mexican leader softened his home-country requirement, saying he would be willing to meet in the US as long as it was solely with the Manhattan businessman himself. "I'm willing to come here, to come here, to the States, if it's for a debate, direct persol debate with him ... so that we are bringing our arguments and we discuss what can really be the answer to ... how the economy works and how the jobs are created ... Yes, I would debate him here in the States or invite (for) a free lunch in Mexico." (IANS)
