Mexicans make it clear once again how they feel about paying for Trump’s ‘Great Wall’

EXCERPT: WASHINGTON POST

With a few taps of his thumbs, President-elect Donald Trump again planted himself atop the news pages in Mexico.

This time it was that old familiar saw: Who's going to pay for the wall? Mexico! he trumpeted as usual — but this time with a twist. Any money “spent on building the Great Wall (for sake of speed), will be paid back by Mexico later!” he tweeted.

Mexico, which has repeatedly insisted it will not put a penny into constructing the wall, again took to the Internet to defend itself.

Former president Vicente Fox vowed that his countrymen wouldn't bankroll Trump's “racist monument.”

Former diplomats also lambasted Trump's plan. Jorge Guajardo, a former Mexican ambassador to China, said he'd rather scrap the North American Free Trade Agreement and realign with other countries than give Mexican money to the “stupid wall.”
