Donald Trump’s plan to build a massive wall along the U.S.-Mexican border — and to make Mexico pay for it — has now gotten former Mexican President Vicente Fox telling everyone what he really thinks.
“I declare, I’m not gonna pay for that f***ing wall,” said Fox, who previously led Mexico’s conservative National Action Party, in an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos. “He should pay for it — he’s got the money.”
“Are you afraid that he’s gonna be the next president of the United States?” Ramos asked. “What would that mean for Mexico?”
“No, no,” Fox replied. “Democracy cannot take us to crazy people that doesn’t know what’s going on in the world today.”
The two then discussed Trump’s latest victory in the Nevada Republican caucuses, in which the entrance poll indicated that Trump won a strong plurality of even Latino GOP voters.
“Forty-four percent of Hispanics — I’d like to know who those Hispanics are?” Fox said. “Because they — again, they’re followers of a false prophet. And he’s gonna take them to the desert. And if they think that they would benefit with an administration led by Donald Trump, they’re wrong.”
Fox implored the Latino voters in the United States to stop Trump: “They must open their eyes. Please, you Hispanics, Latins, in U.S., open your eyes. It’s not defend our race; it’s not to defend our creed. It’s to defend this very same nation that is hosting you — this nation is going to fail if to goes into the hands of a crazy guy.”
“What is Trump?” he further asked. “He’s not a Republican — absolutely not. Those are not the Republican principles. He is not a Democrat. He’s just himself — he’s egocentric.”
Update: Donald Trump has responded with outrage — that someone else is using profanity in this political debate!
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!
