Bill Clinton has apologized to Mexicans for the U.S. drug war, according to Fusion. Clinton recently spoke to Mexican students, entrepreneurs and other opinion makers, saying that he was sorry that the drug war has lead cartel activity past the Mexican border. Many Mexicans have widely accepted this apology on social media, and they fully support his views in that he shares part of the blame.
A director of the Drug Policy Alliance, Ethan Nadelmann says Clinton has been doing a lot of apologizing over the last few years for his actions. He believes that Clinton wishes that he did the right thing during his term as president regarding the drug war, but it is always better to apologize than to never apologize at all. And maybe the ex-president’s regrets could shape future policy makers. Nadelmann thinks Clinton’s words have changed some influential people, especially his wife (and presidential hopeful) Hillary.
