Former Mexican President Vicente Fox to Trump: We’re “Not Paying for that Fucking Wall!”

Former Mexican president Vicente Fox had strong words for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s plan to build a huge wall along America’s southern border and make Mexico pay for it.

“I declare, I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall!” Fox said in an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos. “He should pay for it. He’s got the money.”

Ramos asked Fox is he was frightened by the prospect of a President Trump.

“Democracy can not take that, crazy people that don’t know what is going on in the world today,” replied Fox. “This worries me, the last caucus in Nevada… he won 44 percent of Hispanics.”

“I’d like to know who those Hispanics are, because they are followers of a false prophet,” Fox said. “He’s going to take them to the desert, and if they think that they will benefit with an administration led by Donald Trump, they’re wrong. They must open their eyes. Please, you Hispanics in the US, open your eyes.”

Fox added that America will “fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy.”

Trump, who according to Real Clear Politics leads all Republican presidential candidates by a wide margin nationally, responded to Fox with a tweet demanding an apology:

Fox is not the first Mexican president to condemn Trump’s proposed wall. Felipe Calderon recently told CNBC that Mexico was having none of it.

“Mexican people, we are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall! And it’s going to be completely useless,” Calderon said.

“The first loser of such a policy would be the United States,” he said. “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.”

Calderon marveled that Trump has made it this far.

“It is incredible that a quite admirable society like the American society could produce such kind of candidates,” he said. “I cannot understand that. No offense, no offense to America. So Donald Trump… is an ambitious but not exactly very well-informed man, I don’t want to say ignorant, but he is not very well informed.”
