Former Mexican President Vicente Fox announced a faux 2020 presidential campaign against President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump admin to announce coronavirus vaccine will be covered under Medicare, Medicaid: report Election officials say they're getting suspicious emails that may be part of malicious attack on voting: report McConnell tees up Trump judicial pick following Supreme Court vote MORE in a video shared Thursday.

"Donald, every time I make fun of you, which I do a lot, people say, 'Why can't you be our president?' " Fox said in a video shared by Super Deluxe. 

"America, I feel your pain. We all do. And that is why today I am proud to announce my candidacy for president of the United States."

Fox has been a consistent critic Trump's agenda, including his promise to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and make Mexico pay for it.


On Wednesday, Fox released a video slamming Trump for his decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors from deportation.

The five-minute video shared Thursday also featured a mariachi band singing about the American president and a campaign mascot for Fox: a goat wearing a sign saying "Vicente for Presidente!" and "A taco truck on every corner!" 

"Now, I know a lot of you will say, 'How can you be president? You're a Mexican!' " Fox said. "And to those people I have three words: Donald, f---en, Trump," he said while raising his middle finger. 

Fox went on to slam Trump for not yet having won a major legislative victory.

"I'm not even president yet and we have both passed the same amount of substantial legislation," Fox said.
