Former Mexican President Vicente Fox on Thursday blasted President-elect Donald Trump’s signature promise to build a wall on a U.S.-Mexico border, reiterating his view that Mexico will not be paying for the “racist monument.”
From The Hill
“Trump may ask whoever he wants, but still neither myself nor Mexico are going to pay for his racist monument,” Fox tweeted. “Another promise he can’t keep.”

Reports emerged on Thursday that Trump was coordinating with GOP House lawmakers to build the proposed wall using American tax dollars.
Trump on Friday blasted the “dishonest media” for failing to report that the money spent on the wall will be paid back by Mexico at a later date.
The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!

Fox has been a vocal critic of Trump throughout the presidential campaign, and has previously slammed the president-elect on Twitter and television.
