If Trump wins, August 31st will go down as a milestone, with Trump’s lightning visit to Mexico immediately followed by his blockbuster immigration patriot speech in Phoenix. The visit, and Trump’s conduct, set the non-governing-party Mexican eliteinto a hysterical tailspin.
There’s not just one Mexican elite, you see. In this case, the elite affiliated with ruling PRI (Partido Revolucionario Institucional) party was opposed by the other political parties and assorted high-profile intellectuals. They are furious Trump didn’t apologize for his comments about Mexican illegal alien criminals in his campaign opening speech in June 2015 , allegedly a horrible insult to the Mexican people. The fact Trump showed up in Mexico City without an abject apology drives them even crazier.
