Mexican Senators Hang Anti-Trump Banner Outside Senate

HeadlineMar 30, 2016

In Mexico, senators hung an anti-Trump banner outside the Senate in Mexico City to criticize Trump’s rhetoric calling Mexicans rapists and vowing to make Mexico pay for a border wall. The banner, which read “[Mexico] against Trump,” was launched by Senate Leader Miguel Barbosa.

Sen. Miguel Barbosa: “A call from Mexico, from any part of the world, to the society, to the American people, to reject that strategy and reject the initiative of Donald Trump to become, first, the candidate of a political party and, then, president of the most powerful country in the world and, with that, put at risk the stability of peace on our planet.”
