Of course former Mexican President Vicente Fox doesn’t want Trump to build a wall; he once proposed merging the U.S. into Mexico and Canada.
Fox wanted the U.S. to join Mexico and Canada into a EU-style “North American Union” which would combine all three countries into one regional government using one currency, like the Euro, at the expense of both U.S. national sovereignty and individual rights.
“I proposed a ‘NAFTA Plus’ plan to President Bush and Canada’s Prime Minister Jean Chrétien to move us toward a single continental economic union, modeled on the European example,” he wrote in his autobiography Revolution of Hope. “…At summits I took every opportunity to advocate clearly for free-market policies; showing what sound economics could do to fund social justice; arguing for globalism, NAFTA and the Free Trade Area of the Americas.”
And during Fox’s presidency, in 2005, the Council on Foreign Relations met with the Mexican government to discuss the implementation of this so-called “North American Union.”
“We are asking the leaders of the United States, Mexico, and Canada to be bold and adopt a vision of the future that is bigger than, and beyond, the immediate problems of the present,” CFR member and former Canadian Deputy Prime Minister John P. Manley wrote. “They could be the architects of a new community of North America, not mere custodians of the status quo.”
The CFR proposed “increased labor mobility” between the U.S. and Mexico, which would effectively grant amnesty to illegal immigrants, and a “North American regulatory plan” with a “unified approach” to all three countries, which would effectively end U.S. national sovereignty.
“We are three liberal democracies; we are adjacent; we are already intertwined economically; we have a great deal in common historically; culturally, we have a lot to learn from one another,” former Mass. governor William F. Weld claimed.
An EU-style North American Union would be easier to implement if the U.S. lacks effective borders, which explains why Fox lashed out against Trump’s proposal to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico.
“I’m not going to pay for that f*cking wall! He should pay for it. He’s got the money,” Fox said Thursday during an interview on Fusion.
