Former President of Mexico Vicente Fox took aim at Donald Trump’s plan for having Mexico pay for the border wall insisting, “I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall.”
In an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos on Thursday, Fox said, “This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy.” (RELATED: Trump Threatens Mexico — ‘The Wall Just Got Taller’ [VIDEO])
“I declare, I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall. He should pay for it. He’s got the money,” Fox said of Trump.
Ramos followed up by asking Fox is he was “afraid” that Trump would become president and Fox said, “Not at all. Democracy cannot take us to crazy people that doesn’t [sic] know what is going on in the world today. It worries me this last caucus in Nevada,” and then noted Trump won 44 percent of the Hispanic vote. (RELATED: Entrance Polls: Trump Dominates Latino Vote In Nevada)
“I would like to know who those Hispanics are because they again are followers of a false prophet,” Fox claimed. “And he’s going to take them to the desert. If they think that they will benefit from an administration lead by Donald Trump, they’re wrong. They must open their eyes. Please, you Hispanics, you Latins in the U.S. open your eyes.”
“It’s not to defend our race, it’s not to defend our creed, it’s to defend this very same nation that is hosting you,” Fox said. “This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy. What is Trump? He’s not a Republican. Absolutely not, those are not the Republican principles. He is not a Democrat. He is just himself. He’s egocentric.”
The Independent Journal noted that Fox was a “longtime ally” of President George W. Bush while in office from 2000-2006.
In 2006, Bush signed a bill authorizing the building of a 700-mile border fence, Fox said the actions were, “a unilateral measure that goes against the spirit of understanding that should characterize how shared problems between neighboring countries are handled and that affects cooperation in the hemisphere.”
Trump tweeted this in response:
