Mexico Former President: Not Paying For "That F*kng Wall"

Too funny. Vicente Fox, former President of Mexico, responds to Donald Trump's plan for a border wall saying "I'm not paying for that f*king wall. He should pay for it, he's got the money."

Fox says Trump is not a Republican, he's a crazy man, he's just himself and egocentric. He wanted to know who the Hispanics are are who are supporting Trump because they are "following a false prophet." But he's not concerned Trump will win.

Trump responded on Twitter:

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!

Don't hold your breath, Donald.

    Trump is right there would be major pearl clutching going on if he used the F bomb.

    However I found the whole thing hysterical.

    LOL! But let's be serious for a moment. (none / 0) (#2)

    Americans ought to consider the fact that Vincente Fox is a leading member of PAN, which is Mexico's conservative party. Therefore, the former president's very sharp rebuke of the GOP frontrunner is highly indicative of the pervasive offense and universal loathing which our southern neighbors are presently feeling over Trump's incendiary and xenophobic remarks. Further, that offense and loathing will likely only deepen should Trump become the GOP nominee or, Heaven forbid, the president.

    Mexicans are a proud people, who have long bristled greatly over being treated as our scapegoat and doormat. Provoking a fight with Mexico holds considerable potential to give rise to a latent but very potent anti-Yanqui nationalistic fervor in that country, which still simmers not far below its surface.

    Listening to Trump the other night, I was oddly reminded of the fact that this coming August marks the 100th anniversary of Mexican warlord Gen. Francisco "Pancho" Villa's infamous cross-border raid on Columbus, New Mexico. Baiting Mexico didn't work for Woodrow Wilson a century ago, and doing so now is not any more in our country's interests than it was back then.
