President Enrique Peña Nieto is finally addressing Trump's controversial comments in an interview with Excelsior. The Mexican leader compared the GOP candidate’s language to dictators like Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini adding that the billionaire is damaging the relationship between the U.S. and Mexico."There is no scenario, I have to say that I regret (the plan), and of course, I can't agree with this American politician's position.”

Peña Nieto also took the opportunity to attack the "populism" of Trump’s presidential campaign, which he said attempts to put forward "very easy, simple solutions to problems that are obviously not that easy to solve,” Reuters reports. "And there have been episodes in human history, unfortunately, where these expressions of this strident rhetoric have only led to very ominous situations in the history of humanity," he added, “that's how Mussolini got in, that's how Hitler got in, they took advantage of a situation, a problem perhaps, which humanity was going through at the time, after an economic crisis. And I think what [they] put forward ended up at what we know today from history, in global conflagration. We don't want that happening anywhere in the world," Pena Nieto concluded.
