As the media reported on Thursday that president-elect Donald Trump’s transition team has told congressional Republican leaders that Trump prefers to pay for the wall on the border between the United States and Mexico with American taxpayer money and make Mexico reimburse the cost later, Vicente Fox Quesada, the president of Mexico from 2000 to 2006, had a rather direct message for Trump on Friday:
TRUMP, when will you understand that I am not paying for that fucken wall. Be clear with US tax payers. They will pay for it.

That followed Trump’s tweet Friday morning in which he insisted Mexico would pay for the wall:
Donald J. Trump
The dishonest media does not report that any money spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!
