In an interview Friday morning, former Mexican President Vicente Fox doubled down on his bold criticism of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s plan for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, repeating his brash insistence that Mexico will not be paying for “that f***ing wall.”
Fox first used the expletive in an interview with Fusion host Jorge Ramos. The initial comment was quickly criticized by Trump, who demanded an apology from the former president.
Clearly, that apology won’t be coming any time soon. Instead, Fox just shot at the billionaire businessman once again in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo, uttering the explicit phrase once again, this time on live television.
“I am not going to pay for that f***ing wall,” Fox told Bartiromo, who was visibly stunned by his comments. “I am not, and [Trump] should know that, and I am not going to apologize.”
Fox was president of Mexico from 2000 to 2006. Former President Felipe Calderón has also vehemently opposed Trump’s claim that Mexico will pay billions of dollars to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
