Former Mexican President Slams Trump’s ‘Stupid Wall’
Donald Trump once made the claim that he would build a wall between the United States and Mexico and have the Mexican government pay for it.
Former Mexican President Felipe Calderon told CNBC on Saturday that Mexico would never pay for Trump’s wall.
“Mexican people, we are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall, and they need to know that,” Calderon said. “And it’s going to be completely useless.”
The Hill reports:
Trump, at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, Monday night, said Calderon’s comments just make him want to build a bigger wall.
“The head of Mexico today said, ‘There’s no way we’re gonna pay for that wall, please inform Mr. Trump,'” Trump said. “I said the wall’s just gonna get bigger when he has that attitude.”
Erecting the wall, along with the deportation of every undocumented immigrant in the United States of America, makes up much of the immigration stance that has endeared the real estate mogul to voters across the country.
On the score of Trump’s presidential prospects, Calderon demurred somewhat.
“If the people of the United States is able to elect someone like him,” Calderon paused and smiled before adding, “Dot, dot, dot.”
