The former president of Mexico, Vicente Fox, says Mexico will have no part in building a racist monument for an "illegitimate president."
Despite not being president anymore, Fox tweeted at the President-elect, "TRUMP, when will you understand that I am not paying for that f*&^%en wall. Be clear with US tax payers. They will pay for it." Well, he's not wrong. It was announced Thursday that Trump will be asking Congress to approve using U.S. tax dollars foot the bill. According to Trump, Mexico will then send a check to cover whatever money Congress appropriates in the rush to build the "Great Wall."
That assertion is hard to believe, given that Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who is also highly disliked in his country, has repeatedly said Mexico will not be paying for the wall. Back in August when he met with Trump, the Mexican president said he made it clear that his nation will not be financing the wall.

I will give the United States treasury my bank routing information if they need money to build the wall...
Not joking...I would rather have a wall on Texas' southern border than 50 Gibson les Pauls...
I'm not joking...that's how much I would surrender from my family's savings for this wall...
Y'all don't get how bad it is down here...
Not only would I happily donate obscene amounts of money for the wall I would take off for work and go help with the construction...for free...
And I'm not alone...every person on my street would do the same...and most more affluent than me...

president Pena Nieto who is very unpopular in his country, has also said Mexico will not be paying for a wall
