Former Mexican President Vicente Fox appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Friday to ask President Trump to “please grow up.”

“Now you’re president of a great nation — of the most powerful nation in the world. Please grow up. Be, or try to be, a real president,” Fox said.

“We take you seriously,” Fox said. “As seriously that President Nieto decided not to come to the United States. It was not a mutual decision. It was our president’s decision, because we are offended.”

A meeting between Trump and Nieto was canceled on Thursday and both sides have claimed they decided not to meet.

Fox has recently compared Trump to Hitler, which “Morning Joe” co-host Willie Geist asked about during the interview.

“Well he’s a populist. A real populist… The way he spoke to the senators and the congressmen from U.S. Congress, it’s incredible. I mean, he’s playing around with everybody and that’s why I make the comparison,” Fox said. “When he comes to Congress and tells them ‘I need the money or the wall, I need $25 billion for the wall,’ what is Congress going to say?”
