Jorge Ramos Blasts Mexican President for Donald Trump Meeting: ‘He Is the Loser’

”He left Mexico City with his immigration plan still intact and without offering an apology to the Mexican people,“ Ramos says of Trump

Univision and Fusion anchor Jorge Ramos blasted Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto for the way he handled Donald Trump during their meeting in Mexico, saying Trump “won” the meeting while Mexico’s leader “is the loser.”

“Would-be U.S. president Donald Trump and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto are two of the most despised and hated politicians by Mexicans on both sides of the border,” Ramos wrote in an op-ed for the Washington Post published on Thursday. “So they made for a strange couple Wednesday in Mexico City: It was the meeting of the most unpopular.”

Ramos explained that both leaders felt they could win, “but, in the end, only Trump did.” Ramos said that “Peña Nieto was not ready for Trump.”

“He left Mexico City with his immigration plan still intact and without offering an apology to the Mexican people. Not only that, he took full control of the news conference, taking a few questions in English, while his host, Peña Nieto, waited patiently,” Ramos wrote.

Ramos said the “timing for the hurried meeting was completely off” because it was hours before Trump’s speech on immigration and one day before Peña Nieto’s State of the Union address. Ramos also wrote that Peña Nieto has a terrible approval rating and “needed a big, defining moment confronting Trump” to win back the respect of Mexican people.

“However, he couldn’t pull it off. He is the loser. Again,” Ramos wrote.

It should be noted that Ramos’ daughter, Paola, works for the Clinton campaign.
