Former Mexico President Vincente Fox’s Epic Twitter Rant Against Donald Trump

From the start of Donald Trump’s campaign we’ve heard nothing but “Build A Wall!” between the U.S. and Mexico. That was his YUUUGE idea and the only idea he deemed necessary to deal with the issues of illegal immigration. Fast forward to February of this year and the Donald added a little more substance to the plan.

Real estate mogul Donald Trump vowed that Mexico would pay for a wall along the southern border with the United States even if the president of Mexico resists.
To do that, he vowed to leverage the $58-billion annual trade deficit the U.S. has to Mexico, saying that action would get the government to allocate the $10 billion to $12 billion needed for the wall.

At that time, many shook their heads, including myself. I pretty much figured that A. one sovereign nation ordering another to pay for a wall between the countries was one of those first rules of foreign policy DON’Ts, and B. It would ramp up the resentment between the two countries therefore any gains made are totally lost. I hate that I was right on this.

This week, The Donald unveiled a new addition to his plan for the wall. Well, I don’t know that you’d consider a memo a “plan” but here you go:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said he would demand Mexico pay between $5 billion and $10 billion to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and if the payment wasn’t made, he would block remittances from undocumented Mexicans living in the U.S.

He pushed the tough-on-immigration plan—which has won him support in the past—as he faced a tough primary in Wisconsin on Tuesday. Mr. Trump billed the proposal as an “easy decision for Mexico: Make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year.” To carry it out, Mr. Trump would need to change parts of the Patriot Act to restrict undocumented immigrants’ ability to send remittances to their home countries via wire transfers.

Understandably, officials and citizens residing in Mexico are not only dismayed but angered by Donald’s grandiose idea. Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto along with many cabinet officials continue to reject his demands. Vincente Fox, the former President of Mexico has had enough.

Fox borrowed a page out of Donald’s playbook, and over the last two days, he unloaded an epic rant against Donald Trump on Twitter.

Fox didn’t stop there… he resumed his rant last night, and it was a doozy!

I believe the former President of Mexico has made himself VERY clear don’t you?

Don’t get me wrong, we have a serious immigration problem in this country. However, ordering another country to pay for a wall to be built is not the fix we should be looking for. The remittance blocking idea sounds ok….on paper, but it is something that has a strong chance of being easily circumvented. Furthermore, the wall nor the remittance idea won’t fix the problems within the immigration system itself, and it certainly won’t fix the immigration problems we are dealing with from those who’ve come into our country from places such as Pakistan – San Bernardino anyone?

At the moment, Donald’s Twitter feed is silent in response. Any takers as to how long it will be before round 3 begins?

    Well, isn’t he just full of himself? “A war with Mexico is a lost proposition.” Really? If we invaded Mexico in a serious fashion, the war would be about as long the First Gulf War. Mexico, except for little enclaves of the non-mestizo elite, is a third world country. It’s army couldn’t take the Alamo.

    Look, I get the anti-Trump stance, but Fox isn’t really getting the better part of this Battle of the Twits. Might say it’s a Mexican stand-off.

    I’ve advocated for years that we do invade Mexico, annex it’s northernmost states, turn them into prosperous American territories (and eventually states), and build a wall at the southern edge. One with ‘gators and a moat, maybe. In the process we treat the drug cartels as the armies they are and eliminate them entirely.
    Explain why – apart from some warped notion of Western Civilization that says “we don’t study war no more” – that is not a solution?

      Battle of the Twits… that describes this perfectly!

      Basically this war of words in 140 characters or less is accomplishing one thing and one thing only… ramping up additional anger and resentment on all sides.

      That’s why round 3 between them – or is it the 4th or 5th round? I’ve lost count… anyway, that’s why the next round between these Twits will be another train wreck that leaves nothing but disaster behind.
