It would be catastrophic for the United States and its bilateral relationship with Mexico if Republican candidate Donald Trump wins the presidency, said the leader of the Chamber of Deputies, Jesús Zambrano Grijalva.
In an interview, the Institutional Revolutionary Party legislator said that a Trump victory would be a triumph for irrationality.
“Of course if he wins, it will be a triumph for irrationality and, practically speaking, the start of a new era in the development of international relationships and in particular, a new era of bilateral relationships, because if he’s announcing possible invasions of our country before he even arrives to a governmental post, imagine what he’ll do if he wins.”
The only thing he has done is awakened the demons of have.”

In this sense, Zambrano Grijalva condemns the behavior of Trump, saying that the only thing the candidate has accomplished is awakening “the demons of hate.”
“It’s absolutely condemning from our point of view that this kind of behavior, these kinds of promises are what will win Trump the elections for the United States presidency. The only thing he has done is awakened the demons of have, taking them out to walk and wake the basest passions that exist in a sector of North American society against another sector that has helped to build the grandeur of this country, of this empire and now they want to see this sector as being capable for the problems that exist there.”
He said that hopefully there are people who will act as the antidote, that these people are legion, and that they will act to avoid that Trump wins the elections.
He said that the warnings like those of the Republican politician, like that of his possible war with Mexico if the country refuses to pay for a border wall, haven’t been heard since the US invasion of Mexico in 1847.
“If he’s announcing possible invasions in our country before he arrives to the government, imagine what would happen if he won. He’s going to take up a collection and see if he can move the border to the Suchiate River,” he quipped.
