Vicente Fox to Trump: You’re president for ‘the wrong reason’

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox on Wednesday accused President Trump of being president “for the wrong reason.”

“Amigo, you have a ton of flaws,” Fox said in a Super Deluxe video. “But in my opinion, the one underlying problem with your presidency is you’re doing it for the wrong reason.”

“A presidency is not measured in praise or loyalty or lavish gifts,” Fox added. “It is measured in the amount of lives it improves. ... If everything you do is only designed to make life better for millionaires or billionaires, your presidency will be infamous.”

Fox, who has been an outspoken critic of Trump, hit the president for past comments about his inauguration crowd size, calling it a an example of Trump's misplaced priorities. Fox told Trump that former President Obama's crowd size was bigger, and that is shouldn't be something he cares about.

“This is you in the most solemn moment of your life,” he said while holding a picture of Trump’s inauguration. “Thinking about how big your crowd was. Worrying that the last guy had a bigger crowd than you. Donald, his is much bigger.”

During the clip, Fox also mocked Trump by pulling out "the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake you've ever seen" to keep Trump's attention.

In April, Trump said he discussed a missile strike on Syria with Chinese President Xi Jinping while eating "the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen."
