The back and forth between former Mexican President Vicente Fox and Republican candidate Donald Trump has been a fascinating display of political trash talking.
Trump of course, has famously said he’d build a wall to keep illegal immigrants out of America, and that Mexico would pay for it.
President Fox responded during a CNN interview with, “I’m not going to pay for that f***ing wall,” to which The Donald countered that he would build it even higher if he was going to have that kind of attitude.
Now onto the next chapter.
Immediately after Trump became the apparent GOP nominee, Fox ran to CNN to apologize to Trump for cursing at him over the wall proposal.
“I apologize. Forgiveness is one of the greatest qualities that human beings have, is the quality of a compassionate leader. You have to be humble. You have to be compassionate. You have to love thy neighbor,” Fox told Breitbart News.
In an interview with Bill O’Reilly last night however, Trump responded by telling Fox to “get your money ready ’cause you’re going to pay for the wall.”
Via Fox News Insider:
During an interview on The O’Reilly Factor tonight, Donald Trump was asked if he had a message for Mexican President Vicente Fox, who was scheduled to be on the show later in the evening.
His reply: “Yeah, get your money ready ’cause you’re going to pay for the wall.”
The presumptive GOP nominee said he wasn’t backing down from his position that Mexico should pay for a border wall.
“Look, we lose a fortune with Mexico. Trade deficit: $58 billion a year. The wall’s gonna cost 10. Believe me, they’ll be able to afford it and we’re going to end up having a very good relationship with Mexico. But right now, sadly, like everybody else, they’re taking advantage of our country on trade and at the border. So, we’ll get it straightened out.”

Fox also said that Trump is “a false prophet” whose proposals will result in the loss of jobs, instead of saving jobs. He said the Mexican people are ‘offended and worried’ about his possible election.
