Vicente Fox calls Donald Trump a 'crazy guy,' says Mexico won't pay for a 'f—ing wall'

It was a typical Thursday for Donald Trump: Someone famous spoke out against him, and he went on Twitter to put them on blast.

This time around, it was former Mexican President Vicente Fox saying he won't stand for Trump's idea to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico, with Mexico footing the bill. "I'm not going to pay for that f—ing wall," he told Fusion's Jorge Ramos. "He should pay for it." Fox also called on "Hispanics, Latinos in the U.S." to "open your eyes. It's not to defend our race. Not to defend our creed. It's to defend this very same nation that is hosting you. This nation is going to fail if it goes into the hands of this crazy guy."

Like a moth to a flame, Trump turned to his Twitter, where he scolded Fox for using profanity. "FMR PRES of Mexico, Vicente Fox horribly used the F word when discussing the wall," he wrote. "He must apologize! If I did that there would be a uproar!" Trump's sudden embrace of etiquette is a surprise, as the Republican presidential candidate has used four-letter words before at campaign rallies.
