Mexico’s former Secretary of Foreign Affairs, Jorge Castañeda, has launched a campaign to condemn the U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump.
In a one-minute video, entitled “Proud to Be Mexican” Castañeda calls for a real answer against what he considers is a “smear campaign” to the Mexican community by the leading Republican contender, who has referred to Mexican immigrants as “rapists and murderers.”
“Silence is unsustainable and it is time to do something beyond the Mexican media,” Castañeda says. “A campaign in U.S. media spots where actors, politicians, activists and entrepreneurs stand together to refute Trump and tell Americans that Mexico is a country of successful people in our country and in yours...It’s time to stand up against someone who is not ignorant, but someone who is a disgrace.”
