Former Mexican President, Vicente Fox, is neither a fan of Donald Trump nor his ideas for building a wall to separate Mexico and the U.S.
More specifically, Fox is against Mexican taxpayers funding the wall.
“I’m not going to pay for that f**king wall. He should pay for it. He’s got the money,” exclaimed Fox to Jorge Ramos of Fusion.
“FMR PRES of Mexico, Vicente Fox horribly used the F word when discussing the wall. He must apologize! If I did that there would be a uproar,” tweeted Donald Trump in response.
Fox has been on record as believing that Trump will lose the presidential race, but even he was surprised to see that Trump won the votes of 44% of Latinos in the Nevada caucus.
“Please, you Hispanics, Latinos in the U.S., open your eyes. It’s not to defend our race. Not to defend our creed. It’s to defend this very same nation that is hosting you. This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy,” warned the former Mexican commander-in-chief.
There have been a number of world leaders to express their reticence at the possibility that Donald Trump might become the next president of the United States and Fox is not the only former Mexican president to be outraged by the wall and the idea that Mexico would help pay for it.
“If this guy pretends that closing the borders to anywhere either for trade (or) for people is going to provide prosperity to the United States, he is completely crazy,” proclaimed former Mexican President, Felipe Calderon.
