“When you speak out of the White House [with] this aggressive, violent language, when you discriminate, when you’re a racist, that’s what you get,” Fox said of Trump on HBO.

Fox said he had to “stand up” to Trump in light of statements made that he said offended hundreds of millions of Mexican people.

“We need harmony. We need love. We need happy communities,” Fox said in the wake of the shooting that killed 17 and wounded several others.

He reiterated his promise that Mexico will not pay for the president’s proposed border wall and held up a sign reading “I arrived here by tunneling.”

Fox also discussed the state of drug cartels and illicit narcotics in Mexico and the United States, saying that his country is hosting a Global Cannabis Summit to seek legalization of marijuana.

He said such a move would deflate the price of drugs, dissuading criminals from using that particular form of commerce as their enterprise.
