In an interview with Univision that aired late on Thursday, former President Donald Trump appeared to threaten to destroy Mexico should World War III break out.
Trump emphasized the gravity of the possibility of international conflict by drawing a comparison between the prospect of nuclear weapons and environmental issues.
“You could end up in World War III. And if World War III happens, probably Mexico will no longer be around. Because the power of nuclear weapons are so big, if they hit us, you’re gonna be wiped out too. That’s how bad it is.” Trump told Univision host Enrique Acevedo during a recent interview.
