The former President of Mexico, Felipe Calderon, had some strong words for Donald Trump after hearing his campaign promise that he would make Mexico pay for a border wall to keep out illegal aliens.
Here’s part of his statement
“Mexican people aren’t going to pay a single cent for such a stupid wall.” He then added, “The first loser of such a policy would be the United States. If this guy pretends that closing the borders to anywhere either for trade or for people is going to provide prosperity to the United States, he is completely crazy.”
He has a point since Mexico is such an enormous trading partner with America, but the fact that shutting down trade might actually hurt Americans won’t deter Trump from making even stronger promises.
This was his response:
Trump called President @EPN “the guy who runs Mexico”. Threatened that if he balks at paying for that wall, Trump will make it higher.

Trump, commenting on President of Mexico declaring they won't pay for the wall: "The wall is gonna just get bigger if he has that attitude."

Yup, according to Trump, the former President’s mockery just made the border wall HIGHER!!
