The United States could use some neighborly advice right about now.
Vox’s Liz Plank recently hit the streets of Puebla, Mexico to ask citizens about their views on the U.S. in light of Donald Trump’s election. During her trip, she asked her Facebook followers to weigh in on specific questions she should be asking the people of Mexico.
One native Mexican responded by suggesting Plank ask for “advice on how to deal with authoritarian presidents and government. We have a loooong history of surviving oppression and normalizing violence.”
The host asked residents to offer some words of advice to Americans who are worried about what Donald Trump’s America may be like.
The result: some earnest, insightful thoughts.
