Former Mexican President Vicente Fox wants Donald Trump to know that Mexico will not be paying for his f***ing wall. Mr. Trump signed several immigration-related executive orders yesterday to make his supporters happy. The Republican has kept his promise and requested the construction of a giant physical wall along the Mexican and US border. Yes, there will be a wall, who will pay for it, is a $25 billion question. The US Government Accountability Office estimates that it will cost between $15 billion to $25 billion to build Trump’s beautiful wall that will be about 1,300 miles long.
The $15 billion to $25 billion price tag does not take into account labor and land acquisition costs. According to Trump, Mexico will handle the bill for his controversial project.
Trump did his first interview from the White House Wednesday evening, and he gave a tour to ABC’s David Muir. The real estate magnate spoke about the size of the crowd at his inauguration, the false voter fraud story, and how he will force Mexican officials to sign a check for the wall.
POTUS said: “We’re going to be starting those negotiations relatively soon. And we will be, in a form, reimbursed by Mexico.” Moments after Trump made the statements, Vicente Fox used a few F-bombs to make his point.
He tweeted at Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer: “Sean Spicer, I’ve said this to Donald Trump, and now I’ll tell you: Mexico is not going to pay for that f***ing wall.”
In a press briefing on Wednesday, Spicer, who must have been happy to produce more alternative facts for reporters to digest, explained the reasons for the wall by saying: “Building this barrier is more than just a campaign promise, it’s a common sense first step to really securing our porous border. This will stem the flow of drugs, crime, illegal immigration into the United States. And yes, one way or another, as the president said before, Mexico will pay for it.”
The former Mexican President was never a Trump fan. During the election, he bashed Trump at every occasion he got, and he slammed Mexico’s current President Enrique Peña Nieto for meeting with the Republican. Trump was quick to criticize Fox and demanded an apology. When Cuban dictator Fidel Castro died, Fox said: “By the way, that kind of dictatorship, that kind of totalitarian leaders, is very similar to Trump. They lie, they cheat, they are false prophets, they promise many things, but they are not going to be able to comply.”
In 3,2,1, expect Trump to answer or complain about Fox’s tweets.
