"Don't play around with us, we can jump walls, we can swim rivers, we can defend ourselves.... We're coming back to the era of the ugly American. The gringo was hated all around the world, and this guy pretty soon he got the title. He is the ugly American, he is the hated gringo, because he's attacking all of us, he's offending all of us. Imagine, I mean that could take us to a war. Not to a trade war."
- Mexican president, Vicente Fox
