By now, every American is familiar with one of Donald Trump’s most famous--and outrageous--campaign promises that he's going to build wall along the Mexico-U.S. border and make the former nation pay for it.
However, the consensus among Mexican presidents past and present is: the hell we will.
Former Mexican President Vicente Fox is the latest head of state to weigh in, and the prospects for Trump don’t look good.
"I’m not going to pay for that fuc*ing wall! He should pay for it. He’s got the money," Fox told Jorge Ramos on Fusion.
Ramos then wondered if Fox is worried about a President Trump and what that would mean for his country.
"No, no, no, democracy cannot take that, crazy people that don't know what is going on in the world today. This worries me, the last caucus in Nevada... he won 44 percent of Hispanics."
"I’d like to know who those Hispanics are, because they are followers of a false prophet," he added. "He’s going to take them to the desert, and if they think that they will benefit with an administration led by Donald Trump, they’re wrong. They must open their eyes. Please, you Hispanics in the U.S., open your eyes."
"It is not to defend our race, it is not to defend our creed, but to defend the same nation that is hosting you. This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of a crazy guy."
"What is Trump?" Fox asked. "He’s not a Republican. Absolutely not. Those are not the Republican principles. He is not a Democrat. He is just himself. He is egocentric."
And it’s not just Fox making such claims. His successor Felipe Calderon mocked Trump and insisted Mexicans “are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall!”
Similarly, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's administration said there’s absolutely no truth to Trump’s assertion that Mexico will pay for the wall.
"Of course it's false," Eduardo Sanchez, Pena Nieto spokesman, told Bloomberg. "It reflects an enormous ignorance for what Mexico represents, and also the irresponsibility of the candidate who's saying it."
