“I mean, he reminds me of Hitler. That's the way he started speaking,” Fox added.
 
"He has offended Mexico, Mexicans, (and) immigrants. He has offended the Pope. He has offended the Chinese. He's offended everybody."
 
Fox has gone on a media offensive against Trump in recent days. 
 
He insisted on Thursday that there’s no way Trump will convince Mexico to pay for a border wall, as Trump repeatedly claims on the campaign trail.
 
“I declare — I’m not going to pay for that f---ing wall,” he said. "[Trump] should pay for it. He’s got the money.”
 
Fox continued: “This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy. Democracy can’t take us to crazy people that don’t know what’s going on in the world today.”
 
Fox doubled down in another interview Friday, repeating that “I am not going to pay for that f---ing wall,” adding: “I am not, and [Trump] should know that, and I am not going to apologize.”
