Chatting recently with “Access Hollywood Live” while promoting her new film “6 Ways To Die,” Fox weighed in on controversial comments Trump as made while campaigning for the Republican presidential nomination. While she will always have respect for the business mogul, Fox voiced her disagreement with Trump over what he’s been saying.
“[Trump] as a presidential candidate has not went too well in my opinion,” she said. “He’s leading the Republican Party as far as the percentage of votes… everyone’s talking about him. He’s getting folks out, but some of the statements he’s making are quite offensive.”
As a former competitor on “Celebrity Apprentice,” Fox has seen how Trump can be. As the leader among the field of Republican presidential hopefuls, the controversial executive has emerged as the man to watch as he heads into the first official GOP debate on Thursday (Aug. 6).
In recent weeks, Trump has garnered negative feedback among many people for offensive comments targeting undocumented Mexican immigrants.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you,” Trump said in July. “They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
Responding to Trump’s remarks about Mexicans, Fox clearly didn’t share the same views.
“To lump all Mexicans and call them rapists… it was just a bit much,” the entertainer said. “We live in the United States of America. We have beautiful nationalities that are all doing well. I think he forgot about some of his Republican Party members even having significant others that are Mexicans.”
As for whether she could ever vote for Trump for President, Fox didn’t leave much for speculation.
“No, absolutely not,” she said. “He will not get my vote.”
