A former President of Mejico finally responded to Trump going around telling his crowds that he’s going to build a border wall and make Mexico pay for it. And he wasn’t impressed with the Donald.

From Politico:

Former Mexican President Felipe Calderon assailed Donald Trump’s call to build a wall between his country and the United States and make Mexico pay for it as “stupid,” calling the Republican candidate “not [a] very well-informed man” and “completely crazy.”

“Mexican people, we are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall,” Calderon told CNBC in a recent interview. “And it’s going to be completely useless.”

The U.S. would stand to be the first loser of such a wall, said Calderon, who served as president of Mexico from 2006 to 2012.

“If this guy pretends that closing the borders to anywhere either for trade [or] for people is going to provide prosperity to the United States, he is completely crazy,” Calderon said.

He continued:

“It is incredible that a quite admirable society like the American society could produce such kind of candidates,” Calderon continued. “I cannot understand that. No offense, no offense to America. So Donald Trump … is ambitious but not exactly [a] very well-informed man. I don’t want to say ignorant, but he is not very well informed.”

Calderon is partly right here. We’re enormous trading partners, and if Trump starts a trade war it’s almost certainly gonna cost us big, take down some companies, and leave a lot of American unemployed. But it’ll be worse for Mexico. Still, it plays well with Trump’s crowd.

His response was funny though:

The wall just got taller…
