Former president of Mexico Felipe Calderon studied Law and economics before moving into politics. His policies as a social conservative and fiscal liberal struck a chord with voters, and when he came to power in 2000, he ended 71 years of rule of the International Revolutionary Party.

CNBC catches up with the former president at an event in Cairo to discuss what he's learnt when he was in power and what other countries, such as Egypt, can learn.

Speaking with CNBC's Hadley Gamble, Calderon weighs in on how to fight drugs and corruption, while discussing how the energy sector has a big influence in fixing climate change. The former leader also reveals what he really thinks about U.S. presidential hopeful, Donald Trump.
