The peice that you are missing is that Mexico has always viewed its Northern Neighbour with envy, perhaps some resentment, but respect.
Hes the opposite of Teddy Roosevelt, that official quipped to Guajardo about Trump. He speaks loudly and carries a small stick.
Everyone Ive spoken to around the world is laughing, Guajardo said.
To be fair, I wonder if Mexico and Mexicans realize how they are perceived as a nation by the rest of the civilized world, based on social, cultural, and economic factors.
He who laughs last and all that.
