In an interview with Fusion's Jorge Ramos, former Mexican President Vicente Fox expressed his anger over Donald Trump's plan to build a border wall.

You can view his declaration here:

Fox, who was in office from 2000-2006, was a longtime ally of President George W. Bush. He is a member of Mexico's conservative party, formally known as the National Action Party.

In 2006, President Bush signed a bill that created a 700-mile long border fence. However, the Washington Post reports that Fox wanted the bill veto, calling it:

“a unilateral measure that goes against the spirit of understanding that should characterize how shared problems between neighboring countries are handled and that affects cooperation in the hemisphere.”

Fox is the second Mexican president to formally denounce Trump's plan to build a border wall. Felipe Calderon, Fox's successor, said he would have no part in paying for Trump's “stupid wall.”
