Vincente Fox on Donald Trump

Former Mexican President Vincente Fox to Donald J. Trump: I’m NOT going to pay for that f****g wall.”

Posted by Jorge Ramos on Thursday, February 25, 2016

In an interview with Jorge Ramos on Fusion, former Mexican President Vicente Fox said emphatically that if Donald Trump were to be elected to the Oval Office in November and make good on his promise of building a wall along the US-Mexico border, Mexico should not foot the bill, as Trump has suggested.

“I declare: I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall,” Fox said. “He should pay for it. He’s got the money.”
