Vicente Fox calls Trump's mouth 'the foulest shithole in the world'

The former president of Mexico is at it again, taking President Trump's words and using them against him.

During a meeting with lawmakers on Thursday, Trump referred to African nations, Haiti, and El Salvador as "shithole countries." Vicente Fox, an outspoken critic of Trump who once trolled him by saying Mexico won't "pay for that f—ing wall," quickly went on the attack, tweeting, "@realDonaldTrump, your mouth is the foulest shithole in the world. With what authority do you proclaim who's welcome in American and who's not. America's greatness is built on diversity, or have you forgotten your immigrant background, Donald?"

Trump is the son of an immigrant — his mother was born in Scotland and came to the U.S. at age 17 — and his first wife, Ivana, and third and current wife, Melania, are both immigrants from Europe.
