Why did Vincente Fox assume Trump was referring to Mexico, even though he didn't explicitly mention Mexico, hmmmmmmmmm?

If he doesn't then he'd be the last person on the world to find out.

By reading what he said.  You might try it sometime, instead of assuming he said what you want him to say.

You might try reading more of what he says, instead of taking little snippets from news stories here and there.  You may have forgotten where I live.

Trump has denied using the word shithol* and there is now a member of the Senate stating that Trump didn't use those words...so I didn't vote.
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Take the "Trump" part out of it.  Is "h*thole" offensive when used in reference to a turd world country?

I wonder what Vincente must think of Lindsey Graham....

“The people coming across the southern border live in hellholes. They don’t like that. They want to come here. Our problem is we can’t have everybody in the world who lives in a hellhole come to America,”

Fox probably thinks Graham is a jolly good fellow.  Fox isn't pizzed at the lingo, but he's thrilled that Graham bends over like a Willow for Mexico, despite what he says.  Fox knows Graham doesn't mean a damned thing he says.

Absolutely not.  Some can be classified as shitholes and others are just plain hellholes.

So who is going to take the job of ambassador to shithole x, y and z? And doesn't that make the job just a wee bit more difficult if not impossible?

Yeah, because nothing bad ever happens to our embassies when a Rat is in charge.
