There’s no way Mexico will shell out a “single cent” for the “stupid wall” Donald Trump vows to build across the nation’s southern border, a former president of Mexico declares.
In an interview with CNBC, former President Felipe Calderon slams the GOP front-runner’s oft-stated wall-building promise as “completely crazy.”
“The first loser of such a policy would be the United States,” Calderon said. “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.”
“Mexican people, we are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall,” he declared in the Saturday interview, the outlet reports. “And it’s going to be completely useless.”
