“I did apologize because I’m humbled, not like him, who is just stubborn. I am always promoting compassionate leadership and that’s what I see in Hillary Clinton. She is a compassionate leader. She is a loving, tending, and caring mother. In her job in politics, she also is an honorable lady. You can be strong and be aggressive, but you’re going to offend people like he has done.”
He doesn’t think Trump has a firm enough grasp on global economics to lead world’s largest economy.
“I think there is a lot of misleading information. I think that the way this guy Trump has made his campaign is with total economic ignorance and people are buying that without being conscious of what it means. Trade is a win-win situation. By trading, both economies gain jobs and gain income and drive the quality of life in those nations.”READ MORE: More Than 800 Baby Turtles Safe In Stockton University's Care Thanks To Quick Thinking, Little Innovation
Fox championed the close relationship between the US and Mexico, comparing it to other relationship the US has around the globe.
“Through NAFTA we created the largest trading balance in the world. Yes, it does have deficit to the US economy of $50 billion. But the US economy has a deficit as well with China [of] $400 billion, has a deficit with Europe [of] $600 billion, has a deficit with Latin America of $250 billion. That’s the world today.”
