Former Mexican president trolls President-elect Trump: ‘Are you a legitimate president?’

President-elect Donald Trump

WASHINGTON — Former Mexican President Vicente Fox is back to trolling President-elect Donald Trump on Twitter, particularly as the US President-elect has waffled on his pledge to have Mexico pay for a border wall and amid questions about Russian interference in the election.

“Sr Trump,the intelligence report is devastating. Losing election by more than 3M votes and in addition this.Are you a legitimate president?” Fox tweeted Friday night.

Fox’s jab at Mr. Trump comes after the US intelligence community concluded in a declassified report released that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an “influence campaign” aimed at hurting Hillary Clinton and helping Mr. Trump.

In addition to that, President-elect Trump lost the popular vote to Clinton by 2.9 million votes — not more than 3 million votes, as Fox said in his tweet — which has been something of a touchy subject for Mr. Trump, who has cited his Electoral College lead to highlight his win.

Fox also slammed Mr. Trump after he said that he is planning to have Mexico reimburse US taxpayers for his campaign promise to build a border wall between the US and Mexico.

Fox tweeted, “TRUMP, when will you understand that I am not paying for that f—— wall. Be clear with US tax payers. They will pay for it.”

And on Thursday, Fox tweeted, “Trump may ask whoever he wants, but still neither myself nor Mexico are going to pay for his racist monument. Another promise he can’t keep.”

President-elect Trump is still insisting that Mexico will ultimately pay billions for the construction of a massive wall along the southern border.

Fox was not the only former Mexican president tweeting at Mr. Trump on Friday.

Felipe Calderon tweeted, “To @realDonaldTrump : The more jobs you destroy in México, the more immigrants the American people will have. Think a little!”

Mr. Trump’s transition team did not immediately respond to CNN for a request to comment on the tweets.

Fox was one of Mr. Trump’s harshest critics during the 2016 election. During Mr. Trump’s campaign, he called him a “false prophet” and said the then-Republican nominee heralded the return “to the era of the ugly American” during an interview in May.

And most famously, Fox cursed on live television in February while talking about Mr. Trump and his proposed border wall, telling Fox Business, “I’m not going to pay for that f—ing wall.”

    They’re already paying for the wall with Carrier and Ford changing plans on moving business there and TRUMP is not even in office yet! And as I said before, if you take away the popular votes from the People’s Republic of Kalifornia and New York TRUMP won by 5 million votes.

      Good thing we live in the USA where the popular vote and majority doesn’t mean a darn thing. Libs love screaming about how it doesn’t reflect democracy, yet they are so uneducated and spoon fed by the left slanted media, they don’t even know that the USA is a Constitutional Republic.

      Thank God the founding fathers had the foresight to implement such a genius system such as the Electoral College.

        Without the electoral, Lincoln would not have been elected and the emancipation proclamation would have never happened.

    “Sr Trump,the intelligence report is devastating. Losing election by more than 3M votes and in addition this.Are you a legitimate president?” Fox tweeted Friday night.
    Yes because the Mexico North (aka CA) had 55 Electoral Votes but the hard working Midwest and the Coal States needed 10 more states to beat CA and they did.
    To @realDonaldTrump : The more jobs you destroy in México, the more immigrants the American people will have. Think a little!”
    Not if they come here illegally. NO jobs for the illegals, what do you not get?
    And on Thursday, Fox tweeted, “Trump may ask whoever he wants, but still neither myself nor Mexico are going to pay for his racist monument. Another promise he can’t keep.”
    Racist monument? rofl No it is a deterrent to keep put the illegals that cannot stand your country, your leadership and your economy.

    Fox can tweet what a Hell Hole Mexico is! If Fox is so great why hasn’t Mexico improved things to make their people want to stay there? Before making comments about Trump you should clean up your own back yard! Maybe you should be asking for help to improve Mexico?

    Mexico’s desperation is showing. First its former president stated that Mr. Trump would never be elected. Then he dropped some F bombs and tried to influence the election. Then he said Mexico would never pay for a wall. Now he sees that it’s just business–and maybe a bit personal–but Mexico is powerless to stop the damage. And the former prez is reduced to trolling.
