BREITBART — Former Mexican President and outspoken Hillary Clinton supporter Vicente Fox has publicly called for negotiations with the drug cartels that have brought terror to his country.
During a TV interview with Mexican journalist Carlos Marin, Fox said that negotiating with drug cartels would help slow down violence, get marijuana legalized and bring in tax revenue from the sale of drugs.
“It is a priority to come to an agreement with the criminals to get them to stop killing each other and killing our youth,” Fox said in Spanish.
According to the former president, negotiating with cartel members is not important if in the end “peace and harmony” can be achieved.
During his interview with Marin, Fox said that the drug issue was not one of violence and crime but a health problem.
“That is why my proposal has been to take the money,” Fox said. “That money when its legalized it becomes tax money and that money goes into the government’s coffers.”
Fox’s push for negotiating with drug cartels and legalizing marijuana comes just days after he publicly supported Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton calling her a “loving, tending caring mother.”
