Former President Donald Trump warned that Mexico could be at risk of nuclear destruction in the Event of WW3 breaking out from the war in the Middle East.
Trump said the potential ramifications of another nuclear war could involve the total annihilation of Mexico.
“The biggest threat is nuclear weapons,” Trump said.
“And we have a man that doesn’t even know what a nuclear weapon is as our chief negotiator. And it’s a very scary thing.”
“You could end up in World War III, and WW3 happens, probably Mexico will no longer be around, because the power of nuclear weapons are so big,” Trump said.
“If they hit us, you’re going to be wiped out, too. That’s how bad it is,” he added.
Trump spoke on the prime minister of Hungary, Viktor Orban, and his view on the violence within Ukraine and the Israel-Palestine conflict.
“I’m sure if President Trump would be the president, there would be no war in Ukraine and Europe,” Orban said at the European CPAC summit this year.
“Come back, Mr. President. Make America great again and bring us peace.”
Trump’s presence in the international arena prevented violence between Ukraine and Russia, as well as between Israel and Gaza.
“Viktor Orban, who’s a highly respected leader and really a good man, he said that Trump had this thing going so well,” Trump said in his Univision interview.
“Three years ago, we had no problems. We had no inflation. We had no Ukraine problem. We had no Israel problem. We had no problems literally whatsoever.”
“We had a border that was secure, the most secure it’s ever been. The United States economy was the strongest it’s ever been.”
“We did some job, and now everything is horrible. You’re going to end up in a world war,” Trump said.
“We have an incompetent leader of the United States. He can’t, he can’t walk off a stage.”
“He can’t find the stairs. He can’t put two sentences together. He can’t talk,” he said.
The former President also said the impact of a nuclear war could be especially harmful to Mexico.
As Newsweek reported:
Recent polls have shown Trump currently holds around 42 percent of Latino voters’ support, a relatively unprecedented level for a Republican candidate.
“The Latino vote is so incredible because they’re unbelievable people,” Trump said in the Univision interview.
“They have incredible skills, incredible energy, and they’re very entrepreneurial.”
A growing number of Latinos are identifying as conservative. While Trump took just 36 percent of Hispanic voters in the 2020 election, according to the Pew Research Center’s validated voter survey, nearly half of Hispanic voters are now aligning with Trump’s campaign heading into the 2024 election.
“They’re unbelievable, entrepreneurial people. And they like me. You know, there’s never been anything like it in the Republican Party,” Trump said.
“And they also want security if they’re in the United States or if they’re in Mexico or anywhere else. They feel strong about security, and we provide that.”
Trump went on to say that security is a key platform for Latinos in the United States, and the importance of a strong border is an increasingly salient issue.
“They live here, whether it’s permanently or part time,” Trump said.
“They don’t want to have people coming in and raiding their house or doing bad things. They want to see security. They want to have a border.”
According to polling data compiled by FiveThirtyEight this week, Trump is leading the GOP primary race by over 42 points on average.
Next in line is DeSantis, who is averaging at about 13.9 percent. According to polling results, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is third, earning 9 percent of voters’ support.
