Former Mexican President Vows Not To ‘F—king’ Pay For Border Wall, Trump Responds With Threat

Video Transcript:

Former Mexican President Vicente Fox has now vowed twice not to pay for Donald Trump’s border wall.

FOX: I declare, I’m not going to pay for that f—king wall! He should pay for it! He’s got the money!

JORGE RAMOS: Are you afraid that he’s going to be the next president of the United States? What would that mean for Mexico?

FOX: Not at all. Not at all. Not at all. Democracy cannot take to crazy people that doesn’t know what’s going on in the world today. What is Trump? He’s not a Republican. Absolutely not! Those are not the Republican principles. He is not a Democrat. He is just himself. He’s egocentric. China and Mexico are the two largest trading partners.

MARIA BARTIROMO: Which is why [Trump] thinks he’s going to be successful and Mexico’s going to pay for the wall because he knows Mexico needs the U.S. when it comes to trade – just the way the U.S. needs Mexico.

FOX: I have to say, we’re not, I’m not going to pay for that f—king wall! I am not! And he should know that. And I’m not going to apologize.

During Thursday’s GOP debate, Trump responded with a threat of his own.

WOLF BLITZER: How are you going to make them pay for the wall?

TRUMP: I will, and the wall just got 10 feet taller, believe me. Just got 10 feet taller. We can do it for 10 to 12 [billion] and it’s a real wall. This is a wall that’s a heck of a lot higher than the ceiling you’re looking at. This is a wall that’s going to work. Mexico will pay for it because they are not doing us any favors.

BLITZED: If the Mexicans don’t pay for the wall, will you start a trade war with Mexico?

TRUMP: Well, you know, I don’t mind trade wars when we’re losing $58 billion a year … You want to know the truth, Mexico just took Carrier Corporation – maker of air conditioners. They just took Ford – they’re building a $2.5 billion plant. They just took Nabisco out of Chicago. They’re taking our businesses. I don’t mind.
