While failing miserably at hitting a piñata in Los Angeles, Mexican President Vicente Fox expressed his anger towards Donald Trump.

Fox was offered the chance to vent his frustration against the GOP presidential nominee while being interviewed for the radio program, “El Show De Piolin.” The former Mexican leader starts off by punching a piñata representation of Trump’s head and then swings at it with a stick.

The vocal ex-President made his opposition to Trump’s proposed border wall – which the candidate wants Mexico to pay for – known throughout the world when he told Jorge Ramos in an interview for Fusion that, “I’m not going to pay for that fucking wall.” When he finally managed to crack through Donald Trump’s piñata head, Fox said, “Empty, empty, totally empty. He doesn’t have a brain.”

Mexico’s former president has been critical of Trump throughout the presidential campaign. In the wake of Trump accepting the invitation to Mexico of incumbent President Enrique Peña Nieto, Fox said in an interview, “I apologize for our president taking this step forward.”

Fox led Mexico from 2000 to 2006. The former president apologized in May for the February remarks he made to Ramos and Fusion, saying, “if I offended you, I’m sorry.”

Before Trump’s trip to Mexico, Fox invited Trump to his homeland, saying, “I think it’s very important to invite Donald Trump to come to Mexico and to learn about the real Mexico.”
