Former Mexican President Vicente Fox let one of his infamous f-bombs slip on live air during an appearance on CNN’s “New Day,” leaving CNN host Alisyn Camerota briefly speechless as he reaffirmed that Mexico will never pay for Trump’s “f*cking wall.”
Camerota was questioning Fox about current Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto’s “diplomatic” tone when conversing with President Trump in a leaked transcript of their January phone call. During the call, Trump begged current Mexico President Peña Nieto to stop saying he would not pay for the wall.
“Do you think that the President of Mexico should have been more forceful in saying it’s never going to happen?” Camerota asked.
“Well, you can use my words: We’ll never pay for that f—ing wall,” Fox said. “Why should Mexico pay for the wall? What’s the reason?”
Camerota quickly followed up with an apology: “I apologize to our morning audience for the salty language this morning.”
“Perhaps I should have taken that offer for the five-second delay,” she added with a laugh.
“Who can think about a country paying for a wall that is going to be built in the neighbor’s territory?” Fox asked. “Why should Mexico pay for the wall? What’s the reason? We don’t need a wall. If Trump wants to build that wall, he’ll have to go to Congress, the U.S. Congress, and he has to tell the truth to U.S. taxpayers that they’re going to pay for that.”
