Ruben Navarrette Jr.: Wealthy Mexicans Privately Agree With Trump

The elites in Mexico apparently agree with Donald Trump's recent remarks about Mexicans that some found derogatory.

Ruben Navarrette Jr. writes in The Daily Beast that Mexico's wealthy, despite displaying "outrage" at Trump's comments, often speak in the same manner at high-end golf courses and banquets.

During his presidential campaign announcement speech, Trump said, "when Mexico sends its people, they're not sending the best. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists and some, I assume, are good people."

Trump added that the United States is a "dumping ground for everybody else's problems."

Many have criticized Trump, including one resident of Mexico who built a piñata depicting Trump in Reynosa. NBC severed ties with Trump regarding his TV show, "The Apprentice," although Trump claims it was he who ended the relationship. The network also decided not to air the upcoming Miss USA pageant, which Trump owns.

Others, such as Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said Trump was telling the truth.

"I have been down to the border and the number I come back with is 75 percent are sexually abused on the way to the United States," King said. "I say in Donald Trump's defense, somebody is doing that to the kids being raped and abused. It's reasonable to conclude they are Mexicans."

King also pointed out that Trump didn't say "most" Mexicans are rapists, "he said they are, he's speaking generally of the criminals that are doing this ... somebody is doing that. You can't be a rape victim without having a rapist."

ESPN announced Monday it will move next week's ESPY Celebrity Golf Classic from Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles to Pelican Hill Golf Club on July 14.

"We decided it was appropriate to change the venue, and are grateful for the opportunity to stage the event at Pelican Hill on short notice," ESPN said in a statement.

"This charity outing benefits The V Foundation's Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Research Fund, providing resources for important cancer research for minority populations, including Hispanics and African Americans. Our decision reflects our deep feelings for our former colleague and support for inclusion of all sports fans. Diversity and inclusion are core values at ESPN and our decision also supports that commitment."
