Birthday tweets seldom assume overtones of attack, but on his special day the former Mexican president Vicente Fox mixed mushy messages for his wife, Martha Sahagún, with scorn for Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.
“Marta. I love you an your birthday, PRECISELY BECAUSE YOU ARE MEXICAN. VIVA MEXICO,” Fox tweeted during a dinner with his wife in Cancún on Friday.
Fox has emerged as Mexico’s most vocal and voracious Trump critic, unloading on the candidate via Twitter and denouncing him in interviews and op-ed pieces. The current Mexican government, meanwhile, is finally formulating a response to Trump trashing Mexican migrants and boasting of plans for a border wall.
