Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump received a devastating blow Wednesday when a popular Mexican warlock predicted he will be defeated in the 2016 election.
Antonio Vazquez, who styles himself the “Brujo Mayor,” or “Grand Warlock,” has made annual predictions regarding both international and Mexican affairs for decades. He’s also a popular TV guest and has written several books.
During a press conference Tuesday, Vazquez was asked about Donald Trump’s future, and offered an extremely grim outlook for the businessman as he dealt out cards from the tarot deck he uses to make predictions.
“Two triangles of spades! … The man has countless problems,” he said after one card was revealed, according to a Buzzfeed translation. “And see, here is the devil himself! He will never become candidate for the Republican party. And there’s more! I’m certain that in December, Trump will fall into a nervous crisis and will probably have to be sent to a psychiatric hospital.”
Besides forecasting Trump’s failure, Vazquez also predicted that escaped drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán will be killed this year by Mexican police, that Mexico’s economy will thrive, and that World War III will not break out. He was less optimistic about Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro, whom he said would tumble from power in a bloody revolution.
“I think that his reign ends this year but not without blood. There were will be strong clashes within the population,” the Grand Warlock said.
That said, Vazquez has been wrong in the past. In 2006 he predicted Germany would win the World Cup (Italy did), in 2008 he predicted the death of Fidel Castro, and in 2012 he had to shave his beard after incorrectly predicting that President Barack Obama would fail to be reelected.
