In his frankest interview yet, former Mexican President Vicente Fox pulls no punches about the man he calls a “false prophet." It was recorded the same week as his apology to Donald Trump, and President Fox strike a very different tone,doubling down on "I'm not going to pay for the f_cking wall" and adding "and please don’t take out the f_cking full word." Vicente Fox compares the man he calls the "hated gringo" and "ugly American" to Latin American dictators like Hugo Chavez and Juan Peron. He also warns that if Trump starts a trade war, then Mexico could retaliate by stopping or limiting money transfers and remittances for US corporations and American tourists in Mexico. Because as Vicente Fox says "Don’t play around with us, we can jump walls, we can swim rivers, & we can defend ourselves." And he warns that if Trump becomes President, he "could take us to a war, not just a trade war."
