In case you weren't expecting this one, Mexico isn't backing down from Donald Trump.
In response to President Trump's executive orders to build the United States-Mexico border wall and defund sanctuary cities, former Mexican president Vicente Fox is standing his ground and reiterating to Trump that Mexico will not pay for the wall.
"I have told Donald that Mexico will never pay for that f*cking wall and now I have to repeat it to this guy Sean Spicer," Fox said in an interview with Anderson Cooper. "They better understand that we will not pay for that wall. U.S. tax payers will pay. It is a wall that is a waste, it serves no purpose."
"Think about it, analyze what he's proposing," Fox continued. "Count the amount of lies he says in every speech, everyday he lies and lies with fingers because his sole interest is to do personal business."
Current Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto told The Guardian he's in accordance with Fox on this one.
"It is evident that we have differences with the new United States government on some issues, such as a wall that Mexico absolutely will not pay for," President Nieto said. "At no time will we accept anything that goes against our dignity as a country and our dignity as Mexicans. Basic principles such as sovereignty, the national interest and the protection of citizens are non-negotiable."
While Trump believes the wall would cost $10 billion, experts have estimated that the wall would cost anywhere between $15 billion to $25 billion.The current vision for the divider is a 40-foot-tall, 7-foot-deep, 10-inch thick, and 1,000-mile-long, barrier made of concrete.
"He is the hated gringo because he is attacking all of us," Fox said. "He is offending all of us. Imagine, that could take us to a war, — not to a trade war."
